I've sewn three of these checkbook covers recently . The first two had minor mistakes ,, but I think 3rd times a charm. I used this tutorial here and it really is easy to follow I just get in a hurry and mess it up. I made all of them using scrap pieces of fabric and a bandanna for one of the ruffle accents.
#1 - cant see the mistakes but trust me they are there. I did pleats instead of ruffling the blue part.
