How to: Make Your Own Passport Holder

This is the quickest, easiest little project that can be whipped out during a short nap or over the course of a couple of commercial breaks. It’s easy as pie if you are a beginner sewist or don’t have a machine. These little passport holders make the perfect little gift (or stocking stuffer, because, really, who hasn’t already started their Christmas crafting?) and can be cut out of teensy scraps or fat quarters. 

Done and Done: A Ribbed, Split-hem Linden

For my husband’s side, we pull names for a sort of Secret Santa and for three out of the last four years, I’ve pulled my sister-in-law’s name. You may remember two years ago, I designed a custom skirt for her. My original plan was to make her a blazer to go with that skirt, but in November she basically bought exactly what I intended to make. I decided to swing from office wear to lounge wear and make her the coziest and chic-est top and cowl to snuggle up in.
