So I was really bummed out, I just got layed off from my most favorite job ever. My boss cried while laying me off, so I couldn't be mad, I can't be sad and mope around for weeks, so I'll craft!!!! I really wanted a pretty checkbook cover instead of the standard old blue plasticy cover. I want to look cute while keeping up with my finances! So my sister found me an excellent tute and bought me a yard of the most wonderful fabric ever! She'll save the day!!! So here it is, my second sewing project ever. I'm very happy how it turned out!!

Here is the ugly old blue one I sewed into the middle:

 

The fabric my sis bought me.
The plaid was an old shirt I don't wear.


Almost there!!!


Yeah I did it!!! Thanks to the materials and support from my sis. I'm much more cheerful now!!!!  Grin






Here's a link to the wonderful tutorial...

Sorry about losing your job. You did a wonderful job on your checkbook cover - I like the fabrics you used.
