DIY Sunglasses and Accessories Bag – personalized pre-made (or you can sew your own) muslin bag with fun bright paint colors. It’s the perfect bag to store your sunglasses and girly accessories.
Hello there! It’s Katie from The Casual Craflete blog. I am excited to share how to make your own DIY Sunglasses and Accessories bag. These bags are super fun and easy to make. I have a tendency to throw my sunglasses in my purse or in the car and they always end up getting scratched. The worst is whenever you put your sunglasses on and there’s a big ol scratch right in the middle of your vision. Also, my accessories are always at the bottom of my purse and I can never find what I am looking for. So, I made a cute solution to my problems using a pre-made muslin bag, fun paint colors, paint brushes and Q-tips. These DIY sunglasses and accessories bags are the perfect bag to keep in the car or in your purse.
Here are the supplies I used:
- Pre-made 3 x 5 muslin bags (I buy mine here) or you can sew your own
- Scrap cardstock
- Paint brushes
Here is how I made the bags:
First, I started by placing a piece of scrap cardstock inside the bag. The paint will bleed through and you want to make sure to protect the other side of the bag when painting. Next, I made a cross design and an arrow design using fun acrylic paints and a paint brush. I just free-handed the designs. These bags are supposed to look hand painted and fun, so perfection is not required. HAVE FUN!
Another technique I wanted to show you, is what a call confetti. You simply dab Q-tips into the paints, then dab the bag where you want. This is a fun and random way to make the bag look like it is covered in confetti.
Here is the final look of the bags. I choose some bright summery colors, but you can use whatever colors you like or have on hand. I think they turned out super cute!
Put your girly accessories in the bags to keep from getting lost in your purse and car.
Now your favorite pair of sunnies will be protected with a super cute bag. I painted a geometric wood bead and tied it to the strings on the bag. This just added another fun pop of color and texture to the already adorable bag.
I hope I have inspired you to create your own DIY Sunglasses and Accessories Bag! Have fun this summer!!!
