Burlap Sunglasses Case

I’ll admit, Burlap is not generally the first material I think of when making a sunglasses case. But this burlap sunglasses case is lined with felt to make it super soft. And, since the outside is made of textured burlap, it is easy to find even at the bottom of an untidy purse or beach bag.

This craft is part of Craft Lightning Week! You may have noticed all week long that my friends Angie, Beth and I have been sharing burlap crafts. And we’ve invited our crafty friends to join in! So be sure to scroll all the way down to the bottom of this page to check out the fun crafts that they have made with Burlap. As an added bonus, any of these crafts can be made in 15 minutes or less!
