I have had the same wallet for many years (maybe about 10 or more). I really loved my wallet and didn’t have a need to get a fancy wallet or even a new one.I just really like my nintendo wallet! I think it matches my personality.
The wallet is falling a part,The change zipper is broken, The plastic window that holds my I.D. is destroyed, and there is obvious wear and tear. My friends and family used to tell me “You need a new wallet” or “I am going to get you a new wallet”. NO! i don’t need one! So after some thinking, I decided to finally replace my old faithful wallet and make my own.
My project? Nintendo controller wallet. This is not the first time I’ve made something out of a controller. Before I bought this wallet, I made a belt using a nintendo controller (apprx 12 years ago or more)
below is a more recent picture of me posing with my belt
So late at night, I grabbed my spare controller (no longer functioning)
I took it apart, and gutted it to make room.
I covered the inside and also made slots for my bills and cards. I also made a custom velcro strap (velcro+elastic band from the fabric store) for ease of open/closing my wallet.
I also attached hinges on the bottom so that it can open smooth and easily.
