And Then My Checkbook Cover Broke

I had never liked that cheap vinyl thing anyway.

I dug through my free upholstery samples and thought I could make a new cover.

I simply traced around the old old one, held the vinyl together tightly while I sewed, and bingo!  a new cover in about 20 minutes.  I did use a sewing machine needle that I have set aside for sewing on paper.

There's a pocket for the debit card that accesses the account.

There's a binder clip to keep the checks for deposit handy.

I'm very pleased with its looks and functionality.

Fun! It looks very nice! Much better than the cheap bank-issued ones! (Most banks will give you a new one if you ask! and also a new register if you ask - I've had both replaced free from my bank).

Very nice! I made mine out of pre-quilted fabric scraps....but next time I try your idea.
