Passport cover - Guest post tutorial from Annie at Originate and Renovate

Today we have Annie from Originate and Renovate with a fabulous and simple tutorial for making your own personalised passport cover!


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