Passport Cover Tutorial

Cut two 6 in. by 12 in. pieces of fabric. 
with 1/4 in. seams, sew the rectangles right sides together leaving a small 3 in. opening in the bottom center.
Clip corners to eliminate bulk, careful not to cut stitching.

Turn cover right side out though the 3 inch opening.
Use a closed pair of scissors to push corners out from inside.
Press cover flat while tucking raw edges from the opening as you iron.
Top stitch 1/8 in. from edge around the entire rectangle.

Fold short ends in 2 in. on each side and press.
Top stitch around the outside of the entire cover again.

Leave insides of flaps open to insert your passport

Fold cover in half and press

Embellish as desired and insert passport

Now you have the cutest passport in the world, while you travel it :)

So cute! What a great gift this would make! I wanted to remember it so I pinned it on pinterest (which leads back to your blog)! :) Thanks for the idea and the directions!
