David has an excellent tutorial for making the holder. I decided to embroider the cover of the holder since I did not have any fancy fabric. I used some light-blue linen fabric out of my scraps for this. I used fusible interfacing on both liner and cover. I downloaded some embroidery designs I thought would be fitting for a passport cover and put my Memory Craft 200 to work. Instead of flipping the fabric around for the second design, I simply flipped the design upside down by programming the machine.
|Cover and liner, each 6" by 8 1/4"|
|Pocket fabric, each 3" by 6"|
|Fold, Iron, and Sew hem|
|Pockets basted to liner|
|Sewn together and corners clipped|
|Turned inside-out with opening folded to be sewn up|
This truly was a fun and quick project. If I travel it will be a conversation starter. If I don't travel it will keep my passport company.
Thank you David for the instructions and inspiration. For the original tutorial please go to Design Close Up.
