Fabric Checkbook Cover

A while back I saw this tutorial for a checkbook cover at Attempting Creative. I absolutely loved it! Checkbooks are always so boring and this was a great and easy way to spice things up. I have to admit I did not follow her tutorial, but it is a good one if you want some step by steps. As always it was my day off and I feel like I have wasted the day if I don't have a new finished product by the end of it. So look it your scrap pile and whip up one of these gems for yourself, because that plastic-y vinyl cover has got to go!






I did cut the plastic dividers out of an old cover and sewed them on to separate my duplicate checks.

  6. This is very pretty, I may just have to make one for myself. I used to very rarely ever write checks anymore (love online bill pay), but recently I've been taking my daughter to a specialist that only take cash or checks (no debit, what is that?). So, I've had to start carrying my checkbook with me again. So I should at least make it cute since I have to lug it around with me...thanks for the inspiration. I found your link on Somewhat Simple's link party!

  8. What a great idea! I need something a lot prettier than the green one that our bank gives out for free. Would love you to join me at A Crafty Soiree, every Thursday.
