CHECKBOOK COVER PATTERN
This checkbook cover pattern is quick to make. You can use alpaca fleece or other wool. The project is made using felting techniques.
Start with a flat piece of felt. You can follow our
wet felting instructions
to make your felt if you have never felted before.
Or you can needle felt your wool to make the checkbook cover. The advantage to needle felting is you can make it seamless. Our
eyeglass case pattern
is seamless. You can check it out if you wish to try doing this pattern without seams. We suggest wetting your needle felted fiber with hot water and soap and fulling your wool to make it stiffer for this project. Our
may be helpful to you.
This free felting project was sewn and gives instructions for how to sew the project together.
You can embellish your finished cover with needle felting, embroidery, or beading, or whatever you wish.
Try using different colors of wool for the inside flaps.
If you want your inside flaps to be firmer, you can use a fabric stiffener.
Be sure and print out the pattern as is. Do not shrink the pattern when printing or you will have an incorrect size when your project is finished.
If you want your felt cover less bulky, you can make the inside flaps with only two layers of alpaca fleece or other wool instead of three layers. Be sure and full it properly so that it holds together.
