4. Clip all the corners and turn it right side out so
the batting is tucked inside. Iron the entire piece,
then fold the lower raw edges over ¼" and press
them to the inside, so they’re hidden within the
layers. Pin them in place. Now topstitch all along the
upper edge, leaving the sides unstitched (Figure C).
5. Fold the case vertically along the centerline so
that the sides meet, and pin them together. Re-pin
the bottom so it’s folded flat and secured with C
a single layer of pins. Now topstitch from the upper
right corner all the way down and around
to the mid-left side, so the case is sealed on 3 sides.
Slip your favorite sunglasses inside (Figure D)!
The measurements given make a belt that’s 42"
long. Just add or subtract length from the 44" raw
measurement to change the size.
1. Cut a 44"× 3" piece of fabric and a 43"× 2¼" piece
of interfacing. You may need to overlap 2 shorter
pieces of interfacing if yours is shorter than 43".
2. Use a hot iron to fuse the interfacing to the wrong
side of the fabric, following label instructions and
centering it on the material (Figure E).
3. Clip all 4 corners and fold and press both ends E
of the fabric over ½" to the interfacing/wrong side
of the fabric. Now begin folding and pressing the
long edges of the fabric the same way, so it’s neatly
folded over the interfacing layer, and pin it every few
inches. Press both sides the same way.
4. Fold and press the belt together down the center,
the long way, securing the open edges with pins
5. Starting at one end, begin topstitching along the
open side, sewing near the edge with a medium-length straight stitch. Topstitch both ends and the
folded side so that the entire belt is neatly edged
6. Slip the 2 D-rings onto one end of the belt and
mark 1½" from the end. Bring the end to that spot
and stitch it in place, catching both of the D-rings in
the loop so they move freely (Figure G). That’s it!
