Wearables: Exterior Update
So, my fabric that I ordered (grey, tech-ish, camo) isn’t getting here until Tuesday.
But as I thought more about my project, I realized that there’s something about using military grade camo that makes me…uncomfortable. It’s a reference that isn’t right for this piece.

I found a couple a print your own fabric stores, online and in New York. First2Print does it in 10-15 days.
Edit: Here’s a pattern I made out of six different composites, each composite uses four Google Street View photos:
