Passport Cover with a Tulip

Leonie DIY creations crafts passport cover tulip tutorial felt pink
Last weekend I made a passport cover from felt. It keeps your passport nice and it looks much better than the original dark green/blue/red cover! You can also make the cover larger so it can be used to cover your notebook to make it look more personal or to cover your favorite reading book to keep it nice while travelling!

This is a very simple tutorial, you can finish it in 20 minutes! A sewing machine is not required.


1 piece of grey felt, size: 21 x 14.5 cm
2 pieces of pink felt, size: 7 x 14.5 cm
3 little pieces of felt for the leaves, size approximately: 2.5 x 4 cm 

If you want to enlarge this pattern, make sure that the cover pieces protrude about 7mm (thin cover), 10mm (thick cover) over the edge of the book so you have enough space to make the seam.


1. Cut out the felt pieces. 

2. Place the pink pieces on both ends of the grey piece. Stitch over all 4 edges of the grey piece. After you are done you can trim the edges if the pink felt is protruding out. 

3. Take one flower leave, push the the bottom corners together and hand stitch them together. Repeat this for the other 2 leaves while sewing them together.

4. Place the flower on the bottom corner of the front of the cover. Stitch the bottom of the flower onto the cover until it stays well together. Then make a little stitch in the center of each leave so they stay nicely on the  gray cover. You are done!
