No-Sew Project: Make a Passport Cover

Travel in style.

We love this passport cover because it is easy to make, it looks great, and isn’t too big or bulky. It’s a perfect no-sew project for this time of year, when both travel and gift gifting are top of mind. Although no-sew, this cover has a polished look thanks to the addition of a Dritz® snap and rivets. So whether this handy accessory is for you, or someone on your gift list, it’s a must-make project.

9) Make a mark on the bottom flap about 1” up. Make sure it will line up with socket. Attach the heavy duty snap stud to the bottom flap. Note: because of stud position, use an awl to create your hole instead of the pliers. Make sure to only attach the stud on the flap. DO NOT go all the way through.
