I used tapestry fabric for some of the checkbook covers. I like the way it looks, and it is heavy so it doesn’t require the interfacing. It is a little more difficult to turn inside out, but it still works.
The next one is made from a cotton decorator fabric sample.
I think these checkbook covers would also be good for carrying coupons or receipts.
This year I got a most excellent sewing related gift: ‘Fitting and Pattern Alteration’ by Liechty, Pottberg, & Rasband. A glance through the book shows me that it is really excellent, just the fitting book I was looking for.
In addition to the wonderful book, A decided to stuff her dressmaker dummy, Betty, which has been lingering around hanging from a door since we made her. I just never got around to stuffing her even though I had the newspapers all shredded and ready to go. Now I have two dressforms, one for each girl, so I just need them to tape me up and our little army of dressmaker helpers will be complete.
