Hi everyone, just want to share with you one of my checkbook covers.
I find them very helpful and much prettier than the ones that come from the bank lol











Thank you for looking Smiley

I love the fabric, it looks totally awesome! Is it a stiff cover (like cardboard on the inside) or is it just flexible like a fabric interfacing? Did you use a pattern?

Thanks you guys for the replies, I just joined this and think it is so awesome!

@ Dawn - I just use interfacing, the thicker one. I was using two different kinds but it was getting too tricky to sew the corners. Once the checkbook is inside it does get stiffer so it feels nice Smiley
