So I've done this once for a swap. I made an Iron Man clutch and I loved it so much I had a hard time giving it up. I knew I had to make one for myself. So here it is, my Emma Frost/White Queen comic book purse.

This is seriously awesome.  I know if i were to try it my DH would probably shoot me, as his comic book collection is worth a lot of money.  Wish he would sell it, but hey, we all have our issues.  Lol.

Did you use a specific pattern or just wing it?  I've never done paper folding myself, but this would definitely be an awesome first try.

Great job!

I pick up comic books at good will or the local half price books, I won't tear into my own collection.... no matter how much I'd love to use some of them.

I actually used these directions, they worked well.... the one thing I have learned is that I'm going to make a template for my next one so that the good lines showing up isn't pure luck.

As for the lining... I just wing it.

Best of 2013 winner, but this is just as good.

This is a great looking project.  I thought you had a pattern throughout.  Excellent work.
