My husband travels a bit for work and has a rather lovely leather passport wallet. I really like it but don’t travel enough justify buying one. I decided to make one. I had made my son a leather laptop cover and that went well.
I bought some red leather at the same time as this brown black leather. Enough for a wallet and a laptop cover for me.
I looked at lots of travel wallets and they were all very large and long. I wanted something a bit more compact. Space for my passport, some cards, notes and a coin section. Possibly a pen too – for the customs forms.
First up were the card slots. They went OK. Well sorta…
I added a bit at the back for notes. Then I tried to create a coin section, with a zip. It was wrinkly.
I realised I needed something shorter, that would fit in my hand. I tried one more design which was terrible.
I was travelling soon, time ran out so I bought this instead!
