    Gosh this was fun picking out the fabrics and making. I am very happy with the way it turned out. Hubby wants to give it to a customer at his work that carries her checkbook loose in her purse. LOL! Well ok I said. Then he said I want one too. Men aren't they something? I think his will be in brown batiks.

    Sorry I was slow getting the last pic up. I bought the pattern from a gal on the board in the buy sell section. I sure am going to make more of these. I will change the velcro length and placement though and put it sideways. It wants to yawn a little.

    That's another one on my list to make!! I love your colors and it looks like you did a terrific job on the sewing. (I'm not a good top stitcher so I notice when others are!!!)

    Red, the first one I made I said the same thing about the closure but....... when you get all your stuff (if you get to keep one!) in it, it doesn't "yawn". my second one would barely close after I got it stuffed! and a tip, the magnetic snap is NOT a good idea, it makes a big lump right under the check writing area, everytime I write a check I have to kick myself so I'll remember not to do it again.
    BTW, NICE wallet!

    Great job, love the fabrics. I'm not a good topstitcher either so I'll drool over everyone else's.

    Ahh ... you girls are so sweet! I love showing my work here on the board. :~)

    dakotamaid and quiltlovr,
    Thanks so much! I have to slow way down to topstitch and many times I use a heat disapearing marker to make the lines before stitching and a top stitching needle helps too.
    Maybe this will help you a little next time.

    I am so glad you told me this. It will save me the trouble of trying the wrong closure! Thanks so much kathy!

    I am going to make six more of these for christmas gifts to my sil's. I am so glad I bought the pattern!

    Very nice and quite fancy too. How long did it take you to make this?

    Well I have to be honest here. It took me a day's work to make it because I had to figure out the pattern as I went and audition my fabrics until I was happy with them, and locate all the other notions I needed to use and cut it out. There are many pieces to cut out, but once that is done, it goes pretty fast.

    I am pretty sure the next one won't be as hard because I understand the steps now and I will stack and cut them out in multiples. I have at least five more to go, so wish me luck! LOL! Hopefully I will have all the zippers to match. (Crossing fingers here)
    Thanks so much for the nice comments. I do try hard. LOL!

    And special thanks to you katier825 for posting the link to the pattern.

    Thank you for the web site. I bought the pattern, downloaded it and can't wait to make one. I have been looking for a check book cover, but this has more than that. I learn so much from all of you. Thank you once again!
