Default Would this fly work?

Hello, im pretty new to tying and i dont like following steps, i like making up my own and it usually ends bad because of that but i came up with this funny crabby fly which i think may have potential
Material:
size 2 long shank hook
mono eyes enhanced with hot melt glue
orange krystal flash
one splitshot sinker (squashed to the hook)
some tan felt for the body and some hand collected feathers (from chicken, turkey and other poultry) for the feelers and body detail
plus olive yellow wool tied merkin style under that with some old backing line for legs..

i like it, i call it the " Flats Crabcake" what do you think? the photos do no justice, i intend this fly for sand flats or calm beaches and sandy areas
