Vintage eye glasses Felt Christmas Ornament – Hipster Week

27 Nov

DIY Vintage sunglasses felt Chirstmas ornaments

Welcome back to hipster week – the week where we celebrate all things hipster.

What hipster’s wardrobe would be complete without a set of vintage glasses. Stitch up a classic vintage style black men’s hipster glasses or a sassy red cat eye with sequin details.

Of all the things I have made from felt I have to say these felt glasses are one of my all time favorites.

Because of their small size these little felt Christmas ornaments are a fairly quick project.

You will need:

4″ x 3″ white felt scrap

8″x 6″ – Poppy colored felt for women’s glasses

8″ x 6″ – Black felt for men’s glasses

Sequins in:

Cut 2 pieces A and 4 C from black felt, 2 pieces B and E from white felt, 2 parts D and 4 parts C from Poppy felt.
