This listing is for a DOWNLOADABLE PDF pattern only! If you want to make your own ID holder, you’re in the right place. If you want us to make one for you, send us a message, we’d be happy to!

With this purchase, you will receive a PDF pattern with colored pictures and step by step instructions on how to make your own Piper ID holder. This is a beginner friendly pattern, however, you should be comfortable inserting zippers. We’ve included dozens of pictures to accompany each step, as well as the pattern pieces. Cutting measurements are listed within the instructions as well if you prefer to just use a ruler and rotary cutter, however you will still want to print out the main body pattern piece in order to cut out your ID window. We also have a “how-to” video showing this pattern being made from start to finish (along with all our other patterns) that can be found on our YouTube channel, “Linds Handmade Designs.”

It features a main zippered compartment with an interior slip pocket to place your ID, thereby securing it inside the pouch. It’s a great size for folded cash and coins as well small items like chapstick. It will NOT fit a phone or vaccine card. Finished, it is approximately 3 ½”wide by 5” high. Instructions include making a wristlet strap or lanyard as well.

  • Some of the pattern pieces are oriented landscape and some in portrait mode due to their shapes and sizes in order to fit onto the page. It’s not uncommon for a printer to default to a different printing percentage in order to get it to print “right”. So for my printer for example, I choose letter size but then it defaults to “fit to printable area”. I have to unclick that box and click the blank box and type “100%”. Also you’ll want to make sure that neither the “portrait” nor “landscape” button is checked, because it needs to be on “auto”.
