A old coat Answered

I have a really nice Plugg polyurethane snowboarding coat that doesn't fit me anymore but I want to make something out of it. Wearable if possible. Thanks.

Boom-De-Yada!

Sounds like she was missing front teeth :-)
 

Did you follow the link?  It's quite the opposite...

No, I was at work at the time, sorry...I was going by your written description....I will do so now though....
 
Ok, and I found this clip also with her speaking, although she says nothing until about 3:40  time into it.

 
Actually, I DID see that one while I was looking around :-)  , too bad it wasn't a bit longer, eh?
