Yes, I read the rules and this cheap wallet was actually bought two years ago.
But according to bad quality I totally destroyed it. It had just a few seams and the rest was glued...

Im a greedy person, so I decided to disassemble the wallet and repair it.

I changed the black lining (too many holes) into a light grey and added new transparent foils. The thin old leather was in a lousy condition, but I had nothing else.  I started reconstructing it and it was a real mess (22 parts...).


The thin old leather looks like crap now... Well, I call it a "raw vintage-look"...most important are durable seams!





I dont know, if this is okay for the challenge...if not, Im just showing off.

Yep, it's okay for the challenge! Smiley
Revamps are welcomed and I'd say pulling the wallet apart and completely redoing it is considered a revamp Cheesy
