Holiday season is such fun, apart from when you have to pack everyone’s stuff, get insurance including medical, make sure passports are still valid and hunt down your driver’s license (because, let’s be honest, you misplaced it again). Why not sew yourself a perfect little holiday wallet!
Flight tickets, passports and documents are usually stuffed into the handbag in a mad last-minute panic and then the paranoia that you forget something only ends when you sit on the plane, stretch out your legs and watch the clouds below.
…this year I was very organized and made a travel document wallet which has a zip compartment for my forms, such as the dreaded insurance, visas and such, plus four slots for passports. Everything is in one place and also looking so pretty too!
There’s no hapless search at the airport counter; instead I am calm and collected thanks to the travel wallet pattern. Become the person you want to be with this fabulous organiser !
I hope you still have time to make one for yourself and your family. There is a step by step video for you to follow and an easy pattern too. I made lots of bags this spring, with everyone coming to my sewing courses. Now I also have a matching wallet! I just need to make a money purse now…
In terms of fabric, I bought a tablecloth for less than $3 and with that alone you could make 10 of these beauties…practical AND economical? I’m sold.This travel wallet goes super well with our ‘Out & About’ bag available here.
