DIY: passport covers

this is one of the easiest tutorials and takes less than an hour to make start to finish. i made these in a snap for the sweet little lovers over at our august. what travel bloggers would love matching passport covers.

here's the handmade how to:

step 1:
cut two 12" x 6" rectangles out of contrasting fabric.

step 2:
pin and sew them together, right sides together with a 1/4" seam allowance. remember to leave your self a 2" opening to turn it inside out so that the right sides are facing out.
*tip: trim the corners off before turning inside out so that the seam will lay smoother.

step 3:
press flat. top stitch all the way around the rectangle.

step 4:
fold in 1.75" on one side and 2.25" on the other. press, pin and sew only along the top and bottom edges.

step 5:
fold in half, and press flat. and that's it. you are done. enjoy.

serve it up with a handmade card and you are set. love you anges and leonard.
