Passport Wallet Instructions

Happy New Year!

While I have some pics and musings to share about my holiday, on the top of my Big List of Things to Accomplish This Year is making available the instructions to the Adorn Magazine Passport Wallet I designed a while ago. Sadly, Adorn folded sometime last year, so the instructions are no longer available. I've gotten several inquiries about the instructions and I finally typed up them up.

And here they are:

UPDATE (February 21, 2010)

The Adorn site has finally closed down and I fortunately have a copy of the pattern piece templates (many thanks to my husband for helping me figure that out!). I have also updated the link in the sidebar if you'd like to use that one instead. Here are pattern pieces:

The instructions are a very basic PDF document with no graphics or photographs (concepts way beyond my ken). I modified the instructions I wrote for the magazine, so hopefully they are clear and easy to follow. Please leave me a comment if you have any questions about the instructions and I'll do my best to help you out.

Converting a document to a PDF and figuring out where to store it was all new to me, so I went to my bag-making/craft business guru, Lisa, at U-handblog and CraftBoom and she, of course, had all the information I needed.

Whew! I'm glad to have that checked off my Big List! And because I always like blog posts with pictures, here's one my favorite passport wallets I made last year:
