Passport holder: Elefanten


Another passport holder but this time for me! it holds 6 passport if needed. I have been hoarding this fabric for a while now (I think it's a Japanese import, lightweight canvas). If I ever had another baby I wanted to make an infant car seat over out of it. It's just sooo cute! The inside is a stripe I've had for ever. I mean a loooong time. And I used piping to define each row of pockets since with a stripe it hurts the eye. I didn't use any interfacing on the lining (only the outside fabric) to keep down on bulk. But then the lining stretched a little when sewing and "bagged" here and there. Over all I LOVE it. So vintage circus looking.
Pattern is this free tutorial again.

 Ava is in the "Elefanten Gruppe" in school. That's just what her classroom is called.  Each classroom has a different name. There's one room called the Maulwurf. Can anyone, without looking it up, guess what that animal is?

Did I mention I'm going to Japan to visit my BFF Jenny B? Just me; no kids , no Jon:) I'm sooooo excited! I leave in a week!

I love it! I think I need to make one for us. Is it the weasel? I'm going to go look it up now. I think it's one of those kinds of animals.... I want to see what everyone else thinks before looking at the comments!

Have a great time in Japan! Are you going to stock up on bento box supplies?

That is SO cute!! If I were ever going to travel again, I'd have to make one!

I cannot for the life of me remember what a Maulwurf is. Maul is mouth?? I have forgotten most of the small amount of Deutsch I knew....

I didn't read the other comments, so I may be repeating what someone else said, or you may have already given the answer, but my guess is Wolf?

I hope you have tons of fun in Japan- the shopping possibilities sound amazing!

Love this thing. SO stinking cute! I just really like the little bits of red on the outside. Did JennyBean mention how excited she is for you to get here? Well, I have it on good authority that she is :)

Linguistics student alert here, it's mole, like the connection between mole and maul. I do this stuff all day. Does that make me boring/sad??

The elephant fabric is so adorable!!!! :)
