** This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to all who entered. **
I had the privilege this week of testing a new sewing design by Amber of One Shabby Chick. Her family passport wallet caught my eye as soon as I saw it a few weeks ago. We're a family of 4 so this is perfect for us. Amber's design also includes a 6-passport version. When I offered to test the pattern for her and she said YES, I was thrilled! Here is my version...
The wallet easily holds 4 passports, but the pockets have enough "give" that I'm sure you could even slip a few more in there (say, if you were a family of 5), or a few other paper items.
The design also includes one outside pocket for any other travel documents or whatever you want to tuck in, and it's all held secure by the strap that wraps around the whole wallet and snaps on the front. (P.S. Yes, I had to piece my strap fabric as you can see in the above photo, but that is not part of the design - I had to do that because I used fat 1/8's rather than the fat 1/4's called for in the pattern - it was the only way I could use that cool numbers print for my strap!)
Amber has offered to give away a copy of her pattern to one of my readers! Leave one comment on this post to be entered, and just for fun since we're talking about passports and traveling, please tell me how many countries you have visited! I am not very well traveled so have only made it to 3 - Canada, US, and Mexico. :)
In addition to the giveaway, Amber is offering 10% off everything in her shop to celebrate, with the coupon code newpattern.
I'll leave this giveaway post open until July 31 (my birthday!). Good luck!!
