It's A Patchwork Kind Of Magic

My newest creation known as Mr Mercury was patched together from an old tracksuit jacket, leather (for the mighty moustache) and a few buttons.
The inspiration behind this was the performance given by Queen at Wembley in 1986, my goal was to translate the brilliant flamboyant stage personality of Freddie Mercury into a patchwork monster.
 This creation now belongs to my other half who secretly thinks he is Freddie (after several pints).
He once complained that I never make him anything. (OK so I don't think you can count the scarf that I started knitting him two years ago and still haven't finished). But surely this is better than a scarf?
