Description

Lately I love all things Dr. Who, even though I'm probably more of a poser fan as I'm still a Dr. Who newbie.  (We're only into season 2 of the 2005 series.)  I was looking for another tutorial and happened across this totally fantastic tutorial and had to give it a try!

I've already had requests from friends and family, so hopefully next time I will improve upon my wonky stitches. :-)

It's adorable! (Is it bigger on the inside? laughing ) You should post it in the Sew Fannish Group! (https://www.threadbias.com/groups/sew-fannish)

I will have to make this for my daughter- we are die hard Who-vites- and love all things the Doctor! I think my daughter has watched all the seasons about 5 times- I'm on my second run through them all- starting with the 2005 series-( the earlier ones never caught my interest the same way) We're even trying to plan an upcoming trip to London just in time for her to see David Tenant- at the Old Vic I think. Thanks for the tutorial- I'll have to make this in secret for her birthday coming up!

Silsbee Thanks! I added it to the group. :)

Mymble The tutorial is really great - straightforward. And it's such a fun project to work on - so neat to see it coming together. I hope your trip works out; no doubt that would be a great experience! :)

Sewneatbycaryn Good to hear- I like fun and easy:)- and yes, I took my older daughter when she was in 11th grade too- but oh dear it was so much less expensive back then...but we'll do our best to make it work and I can get back to the Liberty of London store as well:)))

Mymble My husband did research for his dissertation in London last summer. I had him pick up some fabric from Liberty of London for me. :-)

Mymble

Ahhhh....then you understand;)))) That store is the Valhalla of fabric for me;)

I read through your tutorial. You did a beautiful job on your zig-zag lettering! Going over it a second time was the right thing to do. I am a relatively new embroidery machine owner, but for decades I did freehand embroidery with my Elna lotus. I did lettering exactly like you described. Good point to remind everyone about stabilizing the back of the piece. Believe it or not, years ago I just used to use scrap paper for that!

Silly question! Of Course it is bigger on the inside! wink That is how it works, right? That would be a very handy feature in a small bag.

Silsbee

Speattle It would be handy! Hermione from the Harry Potter series has a bag like that... I'm jealous. ;)

Speattle Thank you for the kind words, but to clarify the tutorial is by Erin who blogs at Dog Under My Desk, not by me. :-) It's a great tutorial, though, and I agree she gives great tips! :-)

I super love this!!!!

Love this. I'm working on a small Doctor Who quilt myself for a challenge in an art quilt group. The challenge was to do something with a shed. Well I think a TARDIS qualifies as a shed. Love your little bag bet you get all kinds of great comments about it.
