Free DIY Passport Wallet Pattern

Passport-Wallet-366x1024 Free DIY Passport Wallet Pattern

I am taking my first ever vacation with my husband alone to Ireland and decided to create this easy to make and free DIY passport wallet pattern to carry both of my passports, my identification and credit cards as well as my phone and money all in one place.  I was amazed at just how easy this pattern came together and how little time it took to make.  I hope that you will think the same and give this one a try.

What you will Need:

  • Pattern
  • 1/4 yd. outer fabric
  • 1/4 yd. interior fabric
  • 1/2″ swivel clip
  • 1 magnetic snap
  • 1 3/4″ Piece of 1/2″ elastic

Step 1: Free DIY Passport Holder Pattern

Cut Pattern pieces as follows:

  • 2 Pieces 2 1/2″ x 9″ of outer fabric and 1 piece of interfacing using either Pellon SF101 or 808 depending on how stiff you want your wallet to be.  I used SF 101 for all Pieces but the large backing pieces.
  • 2 Pieces 3″ x 9″ of lining fabric and 1 piece of interfacing
  • 2 Pieces 3 1/2″ x 9″ of lining fabric and 1 piece of interfacing
  • 2 Pieces 4″ x 9″ of lining fabric and 1 piece of interfacing
  • 2 Pieces 5″ x 9″ of lining fabric and 1 piece of interfacing
  • 2 Pieces 4 7/8″ x 5 1/2″ of outer fabric and 1 piece of interfacing
  • 2 Pieces 9 1/8″ x 9″ and 1 piece of interfacing.  1 Piece of outer fabric and 1 piece of lining fabric.   I used Pellon 808 for this piece.
  • 1 Piece of 2″ x 14″ for strap and 1 piece of interfacing
  • 2 of each of the PDF Pieces

Step 2: Free DIY Passport Holder Pattern

All seam allowances are 1/4″.  Interface one of the Fold the piece of elastic and baste it to the side of the ticket pocket to be used as a pen holder with the fold facing inwards.  Place the two pocket pieces right sides together and sew around the top curve to the bottom edge leaving the bottom and ling side open.  Turn right sides together and press. Top stitch around seam.  Set aside.

Step 4: Free DIY Passport Holder Pattern

Sew the top and side of the 4 7/8″ x 5 1/2″ piece right side together.  Turn right side out and press and top stitch as you did the other pieces.  Sew this piece to the ticket pocket on the side following your previous stitching.  Baste the pieces to the 5″ x 9″ piece you previously prepared and baste along raw edge.

Step 5: Free DIY Passport Holder Pattern

Next, sew your card pockets.  These include:

  • 2 Pieces 2 1/2″ x 9″ of outer fabric and 1 piece of interfacing using either Pellon SF101 or 808 depending on how stiff you want your wallet to be.  I used SF 101 for all Pieces but the large backing pieces.
  • 2 Pieces 3″ x 9″ of lining fabric and 1 piece of interfacing
  • 2 Pieces 3 1/2″ x 9″ of lining fabric and 1 piece of interfacing
  • 2 Pieces 4″ x 9″ of lining fabric and 1 piece of interfacing

Each is made the same way.  Interface each with SF101 or the interfacing of your choice and sew the two pieces right sides together along one long edge only.  Turn right side out and top stitch along the seam.  Once all of the pieces are finished. Stack the pieces on top of each other.  Fold in half to find the center and mark.  Top stitch through all layers 1/4″ on each side of the center line. This will hold the card pockets together.

Step 8: Free DIY Passport Holder Pattern

Create the strap and the swivel clip holder by folding the 2″ x 14″ piece in fours so that the raw edges are embedded inside the folds.  Top stitch along both sides.  Cut 1″ from the strap and fold it in half placing the swivel clip inside and baste to the interior piece between the ticket pocket stack and the card pockets.
