DIY Fabric Checkbook Cover

This is a project that I put together out of necessity.  I still am a big checkbook user.  I know so many people do all of their business online, but for me I still write checks.  I carry my checkbook in my pocketbook.  My checkbook cover was the cheap-o plastic cover that comes with the checks.  Unfortunately over time these covers crack at the edges.  I went into my pocketbook the other day and noticed that the checkbook cover had completely pulled and frayed the lining of my bag.  Okay...that is really not cool.  It was time for a new checkbook cover.  I looked into buying a leather one but really had trouble finding one that I not only liked but was at a decent price point.  So instead, I turned my sites on making one.

I decided I should make one out of fabric.  This is an easy project that I made using scraps of fabric.  I was sure that I wasn't the first one to come up with the idea of a fabric checkbook cover, so I went onto Pinterest and found a great tutorial.   The tutorial gave step by step instructions that I followed exactly.
First I cut out all of the pieces I needed for the inside and outside of the cover and the inner pockets as well as fusible interfacing to add body.  
I sewed the two different pink fabrics together to form the inner pockets.  Then attached it to the main aqua fabric.  I then sewed the back and front together and left a few inches to turn it back to the right side.  Then I sewed all around to complete the checkbook cover.  


It took me longer to make a decision as to which fabrics I wanted to use from my stash than it took to actually sew it together.  No more sharp edges on my checkbook cover to wreak havoc in my pocketbook.  The possibilities are endless with this project depending on your fabric combinations and the best part is you need very little fabric.  

Can't wait to hear what you think.

Pretty fabrics, Judy! I always used a checkbook up until about six months ago. That is when my husband put everything on the computer. Now I leave it to him to update everything!
