Simple Checkbook Cover Tutorial

Simple Checkbook Cover Tutorial

My daughter asked me to make her a checkbook cover so she didn’t have to use the plastic one (gasp!) from the bank – so of course I did!  It seemed a shame that someone like myself who can sew,  had been using a plastic one too!   (oh the horror) So I went on to make one for me and it didn’t stop there!  They are quick and easy to put together and great little gifts.  I thought you might enjoy the free tutorial.  So here you go…
