Need ideas for my seat design.

I have a pair of bucket seats from ISS. I bought Black tweed and Black ostrich (faux).
Has anyone seen ostrich inserts in tweed? Does anyone have a picture of a seat that has a nice, clean, small insert highlight that would look nice on a aftermarket seat?

I know I'm being very vague, but I don't know what direction I want to go other than a ostrich highlight in the seat. I am going to use a little ostrich in the doors and on the console as well.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Send a link of exactly what seat you are getting if possible. That way we could sketch something up as a suggestion

The gray seats on this page are the exact ones I have (not upholstered). I'm going to a shop after work to get a quote...I've only got one quote over the phone, and it was $400 using my materials (is that high?).

Do the seat foams have the shapes in the insert shown already in them?

And you said you had twill and ostrich hide??

Look in the gallery on KristKustoms website. He has done outstanding work and several of the interiors he shows have the kind of materials you want to use.
