Yesterday, I dropped off my sister Inky Binky at the airport for her first European vacation. She's been working and going to school, so she was able to treat herself to this trip. Her first stop is Frankfurt, then onto another plane to Amsterdam. After a few days there, she'll be in Paris. I wanted to fold myself up as small as possible and sneak into her suitcase.
The morning of her trip, I decided she HAD to have a passport holder. Ok, so she didn't actually need it, but it was a fun excuse to make something different.
I had a passport lying around from when I went on my honeymoon a few years ago. I measured around the passport and added a half inch seam allowance. It's a big seam allowance, but I wanted to make sure it didn't turn out too small.
Inky Binky is left handed, so I added an elastic band on the opposite side of what I would feel comfy using. I figured she could wear this on her wrist in the airport and not have to continually open up her purse for her passport or ID. Add a (crooked) buttonhole, sew the button on and viola!
A small, but satisfying project. We were pretty busy this weekend, so this quelled my craving for something crafty.
