DIY Embroidered Sunglasses

0

I have never heard of embroidered sunglasses until this day. It turns out that this is a new cool way to spice up your sunglasses and making them one of a kind. It’s not that hard to do so if you want to embroider you sunglasses, here is what you’ll need:

  • a pair of sunglasses with plastic lenses
  • embroidery floss
  • hand held drill
  • 3/64a�? drill bit
  • thin needle
  • scissors
  • felt tip marker
  • nail polish remover

Start by drawing out a pattern. Each cross stitch has four holes, forming a square, so the pattern will look like a grid. After the pattern is drawn out on piece of paper, copy the pattern with a felt tip marker on the sunglasses a�� dona��t forget to make sure the design doesna��t obstruct your vision. Nail polish remover will remove any mistakes.

Use the hand held drill. To prevent skidding or scratching, place the tip of the drill bit on top of the marked area before turning on the drill. Place a good amount of pressure for a clean drill. Once all the holes are drilled, clean off any leftover marks with a paper towel and nail polish remover.

Thread the needle with embroidery floss a�� make sure the head of the needle is small enough to fit through the holes. Tie a double knot at the end of the floss and snip off any excess. Thread the floss through the holes, following the pattern. Start from the upper left corner down to the lower right corner. Start the next stitch so it uses two of the same holes as the previous.
