The Friday Night Sew In for March was last night!  And, I actually have a finish…

Decided to make a birthday gift for Elizabeth – and found a cute pattern at Madmuffins and Woogiemonsters  for a checkbook cover.

So, this is what I made:

Outside of the Checkbook cover

Inside of the checkbook cover

Folded Checkbook cover…

There are a couple of things I would do differently – I would use a lighter interfacing – as the one I used was a little stiff…made it hard to work with.

The other would be that I would use a fancy stitch around the edge…it would look prettier…

So that is my finish!!!

    I’m sure Elizabeth will love it. (Hope she doesn’t read your webpage and will see it before you give it to her!)
