I recently participated in the Doctor Who rd. 8 swap. My partner said she liked the 6th doctor best. He has a wild suit. (Pic here) I thought it would be fun to try and recreate the suit in art form. I took a rectangular canvas and glued various fabrics around it to make it look like the suit.

Here it is:

I used some of the left over ribbon from his tie to make a hanger.

the Back:

Here's a side so you can see the fabric under the lapels:

all the fabric was from the thrift store. I used a little boy's button down for the collar of the shirt. Both of the plaids were napkins. The gold lapel of the jacket was a tie, and the peach side was another napkin. I had a lot of fun figuring out how to make this happen. The only thing I think I'm missing is a cat pin on the lapel. What do you think?
