So a while back my best friend said he needed a wallet. He's a kick ass drummer so what better than to put a drum set on the wallet. This is what I came up with. It ended up being a bad size and i ended up taking it apart and making a new one with the remnants of this one. I never took pictures of it after I took it apart & made it a billfold. Here's what it looked like beforehand.

needless to say he's in love with it.

That's really, really great!  I love the embroidery.  Are the white sections felt?  You even matched up the stripes on the inside.  What a great, personalized gift!

I did it free hand. I just looked off a picture of a 4 piece drum kit.
