MOGress Report: The Bar Has Been Set High.

The bar has been set high by Polly Ward from Hammer and Fabric.

She works out of her garage shop she shares with her boyfriend in Eagle Creek Oregon and she slew this project. I asked for a fur tuck and roll made from the hides of the elusive Orange Harp Seal and its baffling cousin the Blue Harp Seal. I don't know how she got them but she did. We spoke about the colors and some general concepts and she pretty much knocked it out of the park. I asked her to go with her inspiration and gave her a lot of freedom with the details of the design. The seats and the flowing musical graphic sewn into the door panels are Jamaican Blue Lizard, a hide even more rare than how I like my steaks, and that's very rare. Now it has become a primary goal to make sure the interior isn't the best part of the vehicle! And that ain't no gimme. Thank you, Polly!

I also have to thank my pal Doug Hoeschler for taking some of these pics for me.


  1. You guys rule. I'll be driving the RVIP Lounge & Karaoke Cabaret around Austin all week, and we should meet up in a remote parking lot somewhere to rock out. Find us at to coordinate.

  2. That's insanely cool! I just found you through Kaleo Kala. Great designs!!
