I was about to leave for a working holiday in the Netherlands at the start of this year when I realised that I needed a better way to transport my passports from place to place with me. I wanted a cheerful, easy access option, that was fast to make.
I had a roll of table plastic that I’d bought to make some wallets at some point and decided to use a similar idea for the construction of some passport cases. I used my existing general issue boring old case as a template and began. The images show the paper templates that I used for sizing and positioning of fabric. I like to work with tracing paper as it allows me to choose exactly which part of and where a pattern should be placed.

Table Plastic [I’m not sure of a more technical name for this – I just bought a roll off plastic for covering tables from Spotlight … maybe clear pvc?];
