Vaccination Card / ID Holder – FREE PATTERN (Cricut & PDF) Easy Beginner Sewing Project


I wanted to create a very simple card holder to put my recent vaccination card in.  I designed this very easy, but practical solution.  I used my Cricut to cut out the faux leather and felt.  If you don’t have a Cricut, keep reading, I’ve got a solution for you.


When I was designing the ID Pouch I wanted something that I could easily clip to a lanyard, my keychain or wherever I might need to show my proof of vaccination.  A simple swivel clip made it so that I could easily add and remove it when necessary.  I also wanted to be sure it would be secure in the pouch, so I added a simple Kam Snap.

I have a Cricut Design Space file to share with you.  If you have a Cricut, you can get the Design Space file by clicking HERE.  No Cricut? No worries, grab the PDF file HERE.  It’s super easy to cut by hand.

If you have an embroidery machine, I’ve got an In the Hoop Version coming right after this tutorial… stay tuned.  It’s so cute!

Fabric Lanyard with the Cricut Maker

I have been to several events lately which have required wearing lanyards.  I was so envious of some of the gorgeous lanyards I have seen others wearing, so I decided to create my own.  How fun are these gorgeous fabrics as lanyards!

Lanyard-2

They are so easy to make, you can almost make one to match every event, outfit or personality.  They make great gifts for coworkers, friends and family.

Lanyard-8

I decided to add a little decorative touch to some of them by adding leather or suede.  What a difference that makes!
