10 Handmade Passport Covers

If simple and chic is your bag, you might be best off to find a cover in an awesome fabric that you love (generally the most popular of options on the interwebs) or hit up your local fabric shop for choice picks and use the how to above to make your own! This is also a great option for those who are pickier or like to meet their materials in person first. From Boston Linz ($4).


If leather (which was the fabric of choice for the how to writer) really gets you going, you should also consider this crafty passport holder / mini wallet from Cicada Leather Company. Fair warning: it’s a splurge at $90.


Entertainment fans will appreciate the work of obvious Entertainment Weekly subscriber Ripping it Down, whose passport covers are upcycled from magazines and maps. This one, of course, features the cast of The Big Bang Theory. ($5).


A super simple piece but very well crafted piece from Anneeta features fabric adorned with a million stamps from around the world. If this doesn’t get you crafty inspired to get your own passport stamped up, we don’t know what will! ($15).

As much as we want to avoid plastic I carry my passport in a baggie that zips. You don't want it get wet! You could spend your vacation at the embassy getting another one!
