I bet if you wanted to be cheap and lazy you could use a pot holder. They have some really cute ones at target and tj maxx. Great idea!!!

Hey bagheraa, those are great! I'm sorry you don't have a fabric store nearby, I have to drive about 40 min to go to a good one. When I need a fix, though, I head to the thrift shops and buy things made out of cool fabric and cut them up to make into other things. Easy for this project since you hardly need any fabric.

My dad started hinting that he would like his own sunglasses holder, so I secretly made him one with Superman-print (he kind of has this thing for superheroes...). I've just put it where he keeps his sunglasses and now I'm waiting for him to find it...

Not that your holders aren't great - they are - but the little thing on the corner of the superman one, where your stitching missed the bias tape? That's what I was worried about happening. Did it happen on all your sunglasses holders? Or to anyone else who's tried this?

It didn't happen to all of them, but I had some difficulties keeping the bias in place. When I got it right on the top it was out of line in the back. You can see that I have actually sewed the bias two times on the Superman cover. On the stripy ones I had to rip the seams quite a few times because the fabric itself was very difficult to sew, and the bias tape was harder to keep in place. Of course it gets better with practise, and I found that sewing nice and slow was the best way...

This tutorial is so great... and I'm glad to have found it!  Grin I'm going to make one for my Grandma because her birthday is tomorrow, but it will be for her glasses and not sunglasses because she only wears them to read but when they're not on her face she sticks them in her pocket (or forgets them at home). This is going to be perfect for her!
