Simple Checkbook Cover Tutorial

My daughter asked me to make her a checkbook cover so she didn’t have to use the ugly plastic one (gasp!) from the bank!  It seemed a shame that someone like myself who can sew,  had been using a plastic one too!   (the horror)

They are quick and easy to put together and great little gifts.  I thought you might enjoy a tutorial.  So here you go…

CUT:

BODY – Fabric A cut 2 – 7 1/4” x 7”

POCKETS – Fabric B cut 2 – 6 1/2” x 7”

Fusible Interfacing cut 1 – 6 3/4″ x 6 1/2”

CHECKBOOK COVER TUTORIAL1) Fold pocket fabric in half matching long ends.
