For this you will need a tube map (grab one for free from any underground station) and the original Oyster card wallet that it came with to make the template, or you can just wing it.
Draw around the wallet on to card.
Cut out the card template.
Trace around the template on to the tube map and on to some paper, which will line your wallet.
You should end up with two pieces that look like this.
Stick the map and paper together with spray adhesive.
Cut two strips of clear vinyl, big enough to cover the wallet and two more strips which are half as wide as the wallet.
Place the map in between the two sheets of vinyl and place the two smaller squares at either side, these will hold the cards.
Sew around the outside.
Cut around the wallet, trimming off any excess vinyl.
Pop your oyster card in to make sure it fits.
And your ready to go. Happy travels!
LOVE this, I gotta make some with my bus schedules xD
Great idea! By the way, if anyone needs the template, I found a downloadable PDF of one which you can just print out and use.
Oh I would love to make one of these out of the map for the Chicago Metra! I used to live close and used the Metra a lot, so it'd be a cute little memento.
I got an Oyster card wallet free when I bought my card. Vinyl is a clear plastic fabric, you should be able to pick some up in a fabric store!
oh and whats vinyl, where do you get it from?
where did you get the oyster wallet from, because i can't see any free ones at my station...
dyou have to ask or something?
I think I'll make one with a bus timetable for my bus pass. Brilliant idea, thanks
Super cute! I would like to make one of these for my sister she does not carry a purse. TY, Lisa
i love this idea. what type of vinyl have you used is it sticky backed or not
