Weirdest gift wrapping yet? Or clever reuse?

For the past many years, Rana has constructed reusable gift wrapping from bits of blankets and other pieces of cloth.  This year, we presented Scott with a present in a particularly intriguing creation of hers.  Rather than attempt to describe it, I'll let you see it.

Yes, that is a complete pocket assembly from a pair of cargo shorts, the type of pants Scott most prefers.  The main pocket is a perfect fit for one video game, and the small outer pocket will hold folded money--two of Scott's favorite gifts.

Now, the question before the house is this:  Is this an extremely clever reuse of an existing item, or is this the weirdest wrapping creation yet?  Or both?

You decide.

What a totally cool idea. I think this has potential!

And thus you cast the first vote, alas for the team I do not favor.

This reminds me of the old greetings card debate(not an actual debate), to make or buy. I do believe most of us fall in the middle with a buy and customise,either because we are sort of lazy or artistically inept. I'm both! Assuming it's done thoughtfully.

Fair enough. I still find the pocket more than a bit diabolical.

If that's the first step to some diabolical plot there is either nothing to worry about or nothing anyone can do to stop them.
