Stitches of Light and More

Crochet, plastic canvas, wreaths and more

Checkbook Covers- Work in Progress Wednesday

This past week, I sold my Faith Checkbook Cover on Etsy (yea!)  So I am working on making another, as well as 2 additional to build up my inventory.  I am going to put different words on them… Not completely sure what yet… Perhaps Hope and Believe.  I also have an idea in mind for a white Jesus checkbook cover.  So here are the three I have started so far in various stages of completion.  I need to do the fronts and spines for all three yet.  The purple I started late last evening.  I’m going to work on it some more when we take a field trip for homeschool 🙂

Faith Checkbook Cover

Since I started crafting about two years ago, I’ve grown from just doing plastic canvas to learning to crochet, make yarn wreaths and my most recently, loom knitting. However, plastic canvas is still special to me for two reasons. First, it’s one of the first crafts I remember doing outside of school when my grandmother taught me. Second, it allows me to create my own patterns and express my Christian faith.

I was on a creative whirlwind a while back and come up with a bunch of designs (one or two which I have yet to actually sew). I don’t think I had anything new for about a year! But one night last week, inspiration struck again and I have a bunch of new ideas. The first that I’ve stitched up is a new checkbook cover design.

I enjoy making things that are simple, yet pretty.  I hope others enjoy it as much as I had fun creating and stitching it.  If you are interested in purchasing this item, it is available in my Etsy store here.  If you would like to check out my other items listed on Etsy, my store can be found here.
