I suppose that checks are a bit outdated today. But if you (or someone you know) still kick it old school and write out checks to The Man, you might as well do it in style.This is a super easy project and shouldn't take much time at all. Pardon the horrid photos. It was too dark and I had to use artificial light.
Checkbook Cover Tutorial
Materials Needed: 1 - 7 1/2" x 8" outer fabric 1 - 7 1/2" x 8" lining fabric 1 - 7 1/2" x 8" fusible interfacing 2 - 3 1/2" x 7 1/2" outer fabric
Cut out all of your fabric pieces parts. On the 7 1/2" x 8" outer fabric piece, iron on the fusible interfacing to the back. You don't have to do this, especially if you're using a heavier fabric like denim. But if you're using a simple cotton, it's really needed.
Next, lay out the outer fabric/interfacing piece with the right side up and the shorter ends at the bottom and the longer ends at the sides. On top of that layer the two pockets at the top and bottom with the right sides down.
I forget to snap a shot of the inside view so here is the inside of another cover. (Available in the shop.)
Have fun. And be sure to share photos if you make this project. And, as always, contact me with any questions you have.
