Travel In Style Passport Pouch {52 Quilt Block Pick Up}

Travel is on the brain! Maybe it’s because I was off having fun at Quilt Market {more on that later!} or the holidays are quickly approaching….either one today we will be using our quilt blocks to sew a passport pouch.  We already have our luggage tags….now how about a little pouch to keep our important papers or documents in.

I grew up in Madrid, Spain {father is retired Air Force} and I remember traveling around with a little pouch on a string around my neck, I believe it was a passport neck wallet.  It was quite handy, but kind of a pain when you needed something- you had to fish the pouch out to use it.

This little collection is a little more stylish and less fishy {if you know what I mean, even though I did find one that was an around the neck style}.

Just remember that when you use these patterns you can substitute any of the measurements with a quilt block that is equal to it!  If you need to adjust the quilt block, add a few scraps to the sides…or cut it up if you have to!

The idea is to look past one piece of fabric and get those orphan quilt blocks into a finished project.

Do you have a favorite style of passport or neck pouch?
