  • How to make a passport cover. Felt Passport Cover - Step 1
    Step 1

    Cut out a piece of felt slightly larger than your passport is when it is opened up (this will depend on whether or not you have a new style or old style passport, so measure your own to be sure).
    Then cut two pieces that are the same height as the piece you've just cut and approx 5 cm wide and a fourth piece as pictured.

    Using contrasting felt, cut out and appliqué a seasonal motif to the front left had side of the larger piece of felt that you have just cut. We've gone for a lovely summery lollypop design :-)

This is a super cute little <a href="http://www.deesdealz.com">passport cover</a>. I just got my first passport and am looking to spruce it up. I love this pattern, but I have to wonder if the felt isn't a rather not durable material and if it will wear out with use?
