Stenciled Sunglasses Case

I sewed up a fabric case for my sunglasses because I was tired of them floating around in my purse. Of course I had to embellish it so I grabbed a roll of stencil vinyl and fabric ink for a quick stenciling project.

 

I cut the stencil vinyl, weeded the design, and then placed it on the case. When working with stencil vinyl don’t be too quick to throw away the white backing that’s left when you remove the vinyl. If you place it under your stencil it works wonders at keeping fabric ink from seeping through.

Since the fabric ink is nice and thick it doesn’t take much to get great coverage. Remember to lightly dab the fabric ink and not push it under the edge of the stencil vinyl which can mess up your design.

Look at how crisp and clean those lines are!

  1. this is exactly what I was looking for to do prizes for a girls activity I am in charge of – they’re darling! Do you mind sharing where you got the pattern/instructions for the case itself?

    1. I modeled mine after a case I used to have, but I’m sure there are a ton of great tutorials on Pinterest. Hope that helps!

  2. I am curious about what you meant when you said to put the backing under the stencil. Do you mean on the under-side of the fabric, as a barrier to prevent bleeding onto the back side? Or, directly under the stencil? Thank you.

    1. Sorry that wasn’t too clear. I meant on the under side of the fabric to keep the ink from bleeding through to the back. I rarely have any issues as long as I go easy on the ink, but I’d rather be safe than sorry.

  3. Just want to say thank you for sharing. Trying to get up my courage to turn mine on and do something.

    1. Thanks Millie! Have fun with your new machine! You’ll be hooked in no time 🙂

    1. Thank you Kelly!
