Liam’s going out of town next weekend, for values of “out of town” that require a passport¹. And since modern passports have RFID chips in them, and the border patrol people consider it bad form to deliberately burn out those chips, what we need is an RFID-proof case for him to keep his passport in.
Apparently, this can be done with aluminum foil stuck to duct tape. Not very aesthetic, though, so I’m going to make a decorative cover with a quilt block. At the moment the front runner is a block called Old Favorite; he’s got about 12 hours to change his mind before I actually cut into fabric.
Personally I think the fabrics he chose are ugly. But it’s not my passport cover, so it can be ugly to me all it likes.
1: For a week or so there it looked like I’d be needing one too, but a new passport on a rush basis was too much money. So he just renewed his. I should get one anyway soonish, just because I’d like to someday visit Canada again.
