Reusing interior material for keepsake

Long story short, I'm restoring a '62 2 door coupe. It has been in the family since day one! Already replaced the seat covers, carpet and have the door panels on order from Ciadella. The car is in really good shape for it's age.

Has anyone ever used the old seat material or door panel vinyl to make something. pillows, wall art, or anything else? just figured it would be neat to save the original material for sentimental value. Not much material on the door panels, but could possibly figure something out.

And of course some pics, because who doesn't like pics?

There is a company that does this. They make wallets, guitar straps, belts, shave kits, and more. I have a shave kit made from NOS GTO seat material. Buddy has a guitar strap made from Cadillac vinyl top.

Two doors, four doors, wagons, and ragtops.
