M A K E | passport cover


S U P P L I E S | leather, scissors, sewing machine, paint/india ink


1 | begin by laying your passport on the leather to get the right width. you'll want to cut about half an inch around on the bottom and top. To the left and right, you will want to cut two inches away from the edge of the passport - these will turn into the flaps that keep your passport cozy in your case.

2 | sew. fold the side flaps down and sew all the way around.


3 | paint. you can be as creative as you'd like now! choose some fun words to express  your adventure.




Now I have an itch to travel! We just came back from Louisiana for a work trip and we'll be going home to New Mexico for the holidays, but I am trying to convince Elisha that we need to go on a cruise. So I've been checking out a ton of different trips. Those of you who have done a cruise, what was your experience and who did you do it through? 

Happy Travels! Mel

  1. This is simply beautiful! I look for a passport cover in preparation for travelling, every time I go away, but I never find one that I love. But your's is just so lovely!

  2. Hey Mel! What kind of paint did you use for the cover? This is gorgeous :) But i was wondering if I have to use a specific kind of paint if i were to use leather like yours.
    Thanks in advance!

    1. Hey Carina! I used acrylic and it seems to have held up just fine :)
