Tired of having multiple things to keep track of when your about to travel? I know I was! I created this passport wallet to be able to hold everything in one place and allows you to have one less thing to worry about.

This wallet has a passport slot / or a notebook slot, 2 card holders and a hidden flap for you to keep longer items like a boarding pass.

  • Mallet
  • Stitching Irons
  • Leather Needles x2
  • Sharp Knife
  • Metal Ruler
  • Burnishing Tool
  • Metal Wing Divider
  • Glue Spreader

  • Thin vegetable tanned leather (I went with a 1.4mm Epi leather for the exterior and a 1.2mm Buttero)
  • Thread - Any Nylon or Polyester Thread will work for this project.
  • Glue (Any leather glue will work, personally I prefer a water based since its non-toxic, but if you choose a chemical glue make sure to work in a well ventilated area.)
