Checkbook Covers – Fast & Easy Christmas Gifts

Posted in , ,

I just finished some checkbook covers I made from the tutorial I found today at Crazy Mom Quilts blog. It is so amazingly simple that I whipped out 2 covers very quickly today.

First I made a simple one with some scraps of the dog fabric I've been collecting for years.
If you look at the bottom left corner of the inside of the red cover you can see the double line of stitching that can happen if you follow the tutorial steps exactly.
So on the second checkbook cover I made a modification to the instructions. I waited until I folded the pockets in (2.75") to do the top stitching. I think it looks better, and it was easier to do anyway.

(I also did not use any interfacing in either of my covers.)
Choosing and sewing together all the strips to make the 13” x 7” rectangle took longer than sewing both covers put together! I sure like how it looks though.

You can find this tutorial at Crazy Mom Quilts blog.
