plarn wallet

I had an old hinge wallet that broke apart. Instead of throwing it away I used plarn (plastic bags into yarn) to crochet a case for it and sewed it all together. I drilled into a d20 and used it as my button for the latch. I also added two pockets in the middle to hold my checkbook and receipts. It still has places to hold my I.D, cards, and change pocket with zipper. I also have two hidden pockets underneath each side of the original wallet. Below are the pics of the wallet opened and closed.
