Try Something New Monday

Happy Monday everyone! Well, it's not really happy, but it's certainly the start of a new week and that has to happen at some point, right? :)

I thought I would start today sharing with you a new sewing project that I tried - making a  cute checkbook cover.  Now, I am no seamstress (so don't look closely if you are...) but this was simple enough that I would say a beginner could do it. 

I used some cute chevron patterned fabric and a coordinating polka dot one for the inside pockets. I added a piece of chipboard on the inside of the pockets for a little sturdiness and it helps in sliding your register and checkbook easier.  The outside flower was made using the large rolled rose die from MFT, some of the polka dot fabric, and a hot glue gun.  I added an enameled embellishment dot for the center.

I think it came out pretty cute and it makes whipping out your checkbook better.  Er... um... ok, not really because you still have to write the damage anyway, but it will look nice! :)  I did not make this a tutorial because I really don't know how many would be really interested in it, so let me know if you do and I will be happy to make one.  Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you have a great Monday!
