So I was inspired by graverobbergirl's Star Trek Wallet (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=176750.0), and I decided that it was time to retire my old duct tape wallet and try to make a new one! I had this random Japanese Batman promotional comicbook, so I decided to use it as the base of my new wallet.

I lined it with red silk, sewed in pockets for credit cards and what not, used a strip of velcro to keep it closed, and then covered the whole thing in packing tape so that it would be durable. It's entirely held together by hand-stitching, and I'm proud to say I've been using it for four months and it's held up surprisingly well!

Here are some pics:
The inside (with card-pockets):
