Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Cut out rectangles of fabric
  • Stitch straight seams
  • Top-stitch through layers of fabric

Pattern Description:

The passport cover takes only a small amount of fabric and lining so it's perfect for using up and recycling your fabric scraps and offcuts. You could also make a matching book cover in the same fabric to make the perfect travel accessory set, a great gift for any keen traveller.

Suitable for beginners, the guide has full sized templates that can be printed on a standard home printer and uses only straight machine stitched seams. All measurements are shown in inches and centimetres so you can make your own templates on thick card if you prefer.

Every step of the project has a close up photograph with text in simple, clear language making it very easy to follow.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • It will make a passport cover with an inside pocket that will fit any standard US, British or European passport.


  • 1 Piece of your chosen main fabric measuring 33 x 33cms (13 x 13 inches)
  • 1 Piece of plain lining fabric measuring 20 x 27cms (8 x 103/4 inches) This will not be seen in the finished passport cover so I use recycled plain white cotton sheeting
  • 1 Piece of 2oz wadding measuring 20 x 27cms (8 x 103/4 inches)

You Will Also Need:

  • Matching thread
  • Iron and pressing cloths (white cotton sheeting will do fine)
