My god. you are insane. And I love you for it.
 A added bonus is that it says RUSH under all of that.
Fan-Freakin-tastic!  I'm going to listen to By-tor & snow dog right now.
  Awesome job! what's up with the front?

oooh, i like it a LOT! The style of the coat reminds me of this old coat my parents had in the 60s - that's a compliment, hee hee.

Was it a pain embroidering such a large amount of space?

HOO-RAY!
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful.
I wish I had something more insightful or substantial to say.  I don't.  But I just had to say something, anyway.

Thanks ya'll.  When I found it, it said "Bush is a mark ass trick" r(although I'm not quite sure what that means).  I dyed it a darker color to try to cover it up, but "bush" and "trick" were still visible...then I started embroidering....the words actually showed up better in the picture than they do in real life, but I kind of like that it has remnants of layers of do it yourselfness anyway.

"Bush is a mark ass trick"
I'm so glad you cleared (?) that up for us!

I'll say it again:  (?)

I really like the multiple layers of DIY.  It kind of reminds me of "ghost signs" (residue of old signs painted on brick walls).

That's amazing.  Is that leather?  How difficult was that to embroider?
