Travel Necklace Directions

In these days of tight airport security, I’ve found it difficult to keep ID, tickets, boarding passes, cash and credit cards both accessible, and secure. My solution was to create a travel necklace.

Although it’s very decorative on the front, its primary purpose is to carry my stuff. It’s just big enough to hold a passport, with pockets for my ID and credit card on the back. (I KNOW I don’t want to show that ID picture on the front!!!)

When making it, I included all the colors I would be wearing on my trip. I just laid down little bits of raw edged fabric, added some stitching, and threw in a few beads.

I love the results, and everyone else seems to, as well. My travel necklace has proven to be very useful, when flying. But, when at home, I often wear it as jewelry!

Here are some other travel necklaces I’ve made.
