I did this for a craft-along -  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=91746.msg948658#msg948658
Something useful and cute!
Tutorial:  Hopefully this will be enough info for you
Inside fabric 7 1/2 x 12 outside fabric 9 x 12

Fold each in half and sew right sides together.  Note on outside fabric I made some markings to leave room for string.  On the inside fabric you need to leave an opening at the bottom

Then put rightsides together and sew around the top.  This is a very tight fit on the sewing machine.

Then pull out and make it all right sides on the outside

Sew around the top after you have closed up the bottom of your inside fabric.

insert string and sincher thing and your done!

Hi Elby, I love this eyeglass pouch.  I am beginner at sewing.  This looks pretty simple to make, but can you do a tutorial for this? 

Thanks Smiley

I love this idea.  What a great way to use up smaller pieces of material that are left over.  Looking forward to seeing how you made it!

I love the pouch especially the fabric you made it with.  Can I ask where you got the fabric?

I found it at Joann Fabrics!  It was in the section kind of by the "calico" area, but it's a very sturdy fabric almost like a home decor type.  Hope that helps!

Just found this ace tutorial, thanks for sharing it! I made one earlier and it came out quite wide, to adapt it would you shorten the 12" edge? Sorry if I'm being a bit thick  Tongue

Yes!  I think that would work to shorten the 12 in. length!  Maybe just measure your glasses and and an inch or two . . .  My sunglasses are pretty chunky so I needed it wide!  I'm glad it did work out for you though.

Thanks! I have massive sunglasses but I could easily get my mobile phone in there too... Strange!
