How to Sew a Faux Leather Passport Holder Using Cricut

How to make a faux leather passport holder using cricut

I travel internationally about once a year and thought I would make a faux leather passport holder using Cricut. I chose an access pattern that I enlarged to the dimensions of 8″ x 6″. Then, I created two rectangles using 4″ x 6″ measurements for the inside pockets. I chose two inside pockets because I carry two passports. This was a super simple sewing and Cricut project.

I used pebbled faux leather that I purchased at JOANN Fabric & Craft Stores. You could head to or to Amazon to purchase leather or faux leather.
