TARDIS Bag Update.

TARDIS Bag Update.

Well, the pattern is traced and ready to go, the fabrics are washed, and the accoutrements are all bought. Still no movement on the actual assemblage of the bag, but I have been cross stitching my little heart out.

I started the Police Box sign on some black fabric, with what I thought was “waste canvas”.  Turned out it was twisted canvas, and I could not remove it from my work without shredding the stitching.  So I had to start over with black aida fabric, which required a little recalculation and recharting of the pattern.  It has, however, come up a dream!  I have also found some proper waste canvas, which I will use for the windows on the blue fabric.  I had thought about stitching a Seal of Rassilon on the back of the bag, but then I considered just how much the bag will rub against my clothes, I have thought better of it.  Instead, I have stitched a Tenth Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver for one of the side panels of the bag (using the waste canvas on the blue fabric).

Cross Stitch

I have recently obtained the printable fabric, so now I’m on the hunt for a good, clean image of the “Pull to Open” sign on the front of the TARDIS.  A lot of the ones I can find are either the wrong typeface, have shading, or just aren’t clear.  So the search continues!

I really should get on making my “plain” test bag, so that I’ll be ready to go with this when all the embellishments are finished.
