Coffee Cash Coin Pouch

My latest project as part of the Betz White Sewing Collective Team is this adorable and fun little Coffee Cash Coin Pouch from Betz's book Present Perfect: 25 Gifts to Sew and Bestew. These are great scrap buster projects that take only minutes to cut out and sew.

The Coffee Cash Coin Pouch is useful tool to store spare change in your purse or car for a future cup of Joe. I plan on making a few extras to keep on hand to stick a coffee shop gift card inside and give as gifts to coffee-loving friends! Wouldn't you love receiving a gift like this?!

sewVery Simple Checkbook Cover

Today, I'm bringing home a post and tutorial I originally shared on Andrea's Notebook. Enjoy!

Even in this tech-saturated digital age, most people still use a written check every now and then to pay a bill or buy something new. I find that nostalgic and very refreshing. Plus, writing a check is about the only opportunity I have to use cursive!

Here's the thing though. I despise those tacky plastic checkbook covers that come with every box of new checks. So I did what any normal, savvy sewing person would do. I made my own and wrote a sewVery Simple Checkbook Cover Tutorial to share with you!
