Checkbook Covers

I've been crushing on handmade checkbook covers I've seen around Blogland for a while now. (Like The Pleated Poppy.) I currently use the bank-issued checkbook cover, and it's just dull.

Since I'm eager to explore my sewing machine and learn new things, I decided to try my hand at making one or two for myself.









So what do you think? I have a tutorial here.
