Weekend Sewing Resulting in a Giveaway

I finally caught a crafty bug (that didn't revolve around a knitting project), and decided to honor it by spending the weekend sewing.

I've been inspired by a few checkbook covers (seen here and here) and decided that if I must pay bills, I should probably do it in style.  So I whipped up a new checkbook cover!  Once it was finished, I decided that I wanted one that would hold the checkbook cover you get from the bank (you know, the plain jane plastic ones) because it holds my stamps as well.  So I made a second one, a slightly larger version of the first.

I love them both equally, but really... I only need one.  So I've decided to give the other one away to one of you lovely readers (if anyone really wants it)!  You just have to promise not to judge my sewing skills to harshly.  If it is not a quilt, I really struggle to make it look good. 

The one up for grabs is the brown and red one... complete with the most adorable red polka dot lining.  It fits a checkbook, very snugly I might add, and adds a little happiness to the boring task of writing checks.

Just leave a comment on this post anytime before Monday, December 27, and I'll draw a winning name at random.  Sorry, but no international shipping, which means US residents only. 

Merry Christmas!

They're both so pretty! I've been meaning to do the same thing. I even bought a cute pattern for a cover (like a year ago, haha), but haven't gotten around to it.

I would really love to win this cover. If I don't win maybe you could just send the pattern and detailed instructions to me. Have a Merry Christmas and know that we are all think about you and yours.
