I'm a major Harry Potter fan, and after seeing this bag by Papilionette and this one by Lilak Tygress, I knew had to have my own.

Just one problem--I didn't have any money around to go buy some fabric to make myself a bag. Instead I found my old wallet that I didn't use anymore, just lying on my desk, looking sad and collecting dust, and I decided to give it new life.

I just painted it with fabric paint I had leftover from another project, then drew everything on with a fabric marker and sealed it with some Mod Podge, and voila!

My Marauder's Map wallet was born  Cheesy

Too cute. Your lettering rocks. What was the original wallet made of? Plastic? Cloth?

Thanks!  The original wallet was made of some kind of cloth.

I really wish I had any sort of drawing and artistic ability.  Give me quilts and I'm fine, drawing I can't do to save my life.  Your wallet is fantastic!  I love all the detail and what a great way to give an old wallet a new chance.
