You, guys! I, Kara, am obsessed with these DIY Palm Springs inspired glasses cases! Now, I will admit that I have never been to Palm Springs, but I do love a colorful mid century front door. Getting one of my own to replace my builder grade ornate glass window door is on my house bucket list. But in the meantime, I thought it best to live out my obsession in a more budget-friendly way with these glasses cases. Not only are these cases budget friendly, but they require no sewing and come together in under 30 minutes!

Step One: Begin by measuring your sunglasses. Fold the felt in half and cut out the felt adding 1″ around each side of the sunglasses, making sure to cut so the fold is on one side of the rectangle.

Step Two: Cut a second piece of felt that measures the same size as the glasses case rectangle you cut above.

Step Three: Cut out a piece of Heat n Bond that measures the same size as your rectangle glasses case and iron the glue side down onto this second piece of felt. Let cool, and then remove the paper backing.

Step Four: Cut the glue backed felt into squares and lay them out on the front of the glasses case. Use your iron to iron over the top of them and adhere them to the case.

Step Five: Use your glue gun to add a small piece of gold felt for the door handle. And then glue the bottom and side of the case together to finish it off.

Of course I had to make the iconic pink door as a glasses case. I also searched Pinterest for more mid century door inspiration and created a few different doors in a few different colors, because I like options!

These Palm Springs inspired glasses cases were so much fun to make, and they would make the perfect easy DIY gift for your friends. Or even better, grab a few different colors of felt and a bottle of rosé and invite your friends over for a craft party! I am seriously obsessed and am finding it hard to choose my favorite. Which one is your favorite? xo. Kara
