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 Cricut.com or to Amazon to purchase leather or faux leather.

Step 1: Open Cricut Design Space
Open Cricut Design Space and choose “Floral Window Metallic Leather Journal” from projects. Remove everything but the outer journal. Place it on the canvas.

Step 2: Create Two Rectangles
In addition to the journal cover, create two rectangles that measure 3.7″ wide by 6″ high. You can doo this by clicking on the square in the shapes tab and resizing it to the correct dimensions after unlocking the measurement tab.
Step 3: Create the Large Rectangle
Create a large rectangle that measures 8″ wide x 6″ high.
Step 4: Place the Faux leather on the green mat
Place the faux leather on the green mat. Tape it to the mat if necessary. Click Make It. Insert the mat with the faux leather into the machine and click go. This will create the outer passport holder.
Step 5: Make the Two Rectangles
Make the two rectangles in the same way.
Step 6: Make the Single Rectangle
Create the single rectangle in the same way.
Step 7: Put it all Together
Layer the four pieces of faux leather. Place the outside holder right sides down. Place the large rectangle right sides up on the outer holder. Then, place the the pocket pieces on each side. Clip all the pieces together using wonder clips. Stitch all the way around through all layers. You have now finished your faux leather passport holder using Cricut.
