Back to the Future Car Seat Cover!

The Flux Capacitor: It's what makes time travel possible.
And every time machine (aka minivan) needs one, I bet there's even one
hidden in the TARDIS somewhere. Just to complete some collection.

For the Nerd Games: June Textbook 45pts

We got the minivan about 3 years ago now, and it's the first time I've dealt with 
leather seats on a regular basis. They can get pretty hot on my legs with the sun beating on them.
That can get pretty heavy! 

So, I decided I needed something to protect my legs. 
I basically styled this like a huge Teesha Moore patch.
I love those darn patches. They have a cool artisan look, and you can really let 
your creativity fly!

The stitching was done with Free Motion Embroidery.

The prompt was:
TextbookWaves are all around us! Light we see, sound we hear, electricity we use, earthquake or tsunami events, even the particles we are made of are all wave phenomena.  In mathematics and science, a wave is a disturbance that travels through space and time, usually accompanied by the transfer of energy. Your challenge this month is to create something that incorporates waves, whether you play with them as a mathematical model/pattern or a natural phenomenon. 

I even incorporated a sassy ribbon for rolling up storage!

Everyone's gonna want one of these things....
