How to Sew Machine Embroidered Sunglasses Case (free In The Hoop project)


All that’s required to make this beautiful sunglasses case (or glasses case) is a few supplies and an embroidery machine with a 5×7 or larger hoop! You’ll love the fast and easy (and free) in the hoop (ITH) embroidery design that is customizeable with fabric, thread, and even different embroidery designs.


A few months ago I collaborated with Hatch Embroidery to make this fun in-the-hoop project for their blog.

I used Hatch Embroidery Digitizer to create the pattern, and then I made a video showing how to use the same software to change the design using any of the many fills that are included.


For this project, I used a few scraps of fabric for the exterior and the lining plus quilt batting scraps to give each case some cushioning.


My Janome 14000 Sewing and Embroidery machine that I bought from Sewing Machines Plus made sewing these sunglasses cases a breeze – as you can see, I couldn’t stop.


If your embroidery machine has a 5×7 hoop, then you can make these! Just visit the Hatch blog for the free design.

Happy embroidering,

    I don’t have Hatch. I have Bernina V8.2. Is the Hatch compatible to the Bernina software?
