Something super cool for Andy
The parameters for this project were: shiny and tactile.
Sounds easy but generally when fabric is shiny it is not soft or fuzzy. Fuzzy fabric is generally not too shiny.
My solution was a super soft faux fur/chenille sort of fabric mixed with a great turquoise brocade - luckily I found them in coordinating colors.
Upon seeing the finished jacket and wearing it he announced that it will be his new woobie - people will be tired of seeing him in it long before he tires of wearing it.
I think it looks like I skinned a chinese imperial muppet.
In any case, I am happy with the result and he is very happy with it so my work here is finished.....
