It lives in pride of place in my room except for when my Doctor Who loving housemates attempt to TARDIS-nap it. Wink

Thanks everyone. Smiley

meriweather, yeah, my poor dog is sick of having to pose with the things I make. I pull out the camera and my latest creation and you can see her going 'oh no, here we go again'. Then she flat out refuses to look at the camera.

bettyxbrown, K9 is the Doctor's robotic dog from the old Doctor Who series. He made an appearance in a couple of episodes in the new series, too.

Thanks, all, for your kind words. Shocked)

By any chance is that a vintage Corel soap dispenser back there? I know that seems like a weird question but it looks like the exact same pattern from the dishes my parents had when I was growing up. I love the green flower design, luckily they gave me the dishes when I got married (sadly no soap dispenser, though I can remember one like it when I was younger)

It could well be, we've had it for as long as I can remember, I suspect my parents acquired it sometime in the 70s.

Did you make the sides of the Blinky symmetrical from head to tail or did you make the tail half longer?

I made the sides symmetrical then when I'd sewn the three body pieces together I crocheted the tail straight onto the body.

I saw a Blinky that someone else had made and knew I had to make one for my dad, who loves Blinky. I'm a beginner crocheter, so I just used the stitches I knew and looked at a picture of Blinky to make it up as I went along.









I did the body in three seperate parts then sewed them together. I made each eye seperately and sewed them on before I stuffed the body. Once I'd stuffed him and sewn him up I crocheted the lips, fins and tail onto the body. I apologise in advance if anyone wants a pattern, I don't have one because I don't know what any of the technical terms were for what I did. But if I can make it up then anyone can.
7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / K9, the shooty dog thing on: January 17, 2009 10:53:37 PM
Being very fond of K9, I wanted to make my own cuddly version.




With my other canine, for scale.


'Mistress, I have found another dog. It seems to be ignoring me.'

The ears and tail are handsewn and have pipecleaners in them so they'll hold their shape. There is batting under the control panel to give the buttons more dimension. I later added his tag, made from silver cardboard and the chain from a keyring.

I bought the grey fabric for $3 in a remnants pile, and the rest I had in my stash.
8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Cuddly TARDIS on: January 17, 2009 10:42:09 PM
I don't really think there was a rational reason for this, I just had a particular desire to make a cuddly TARDIS. So I did.





It's all made from felt. The light on top is handsewn, the rest was easy enough to do on the machine. The police box signs are hand embroidered, as are the lines on the windows and the door handle and key hole. The sign is handwritten. It took me a long time to find a fabric where the marker didn't just bleed- because the writing is so tiny any bleeding made it too hard to read. I ended up using interfacing, which did a marvellous job. Writing that small was also an adventure.

I keep waiting for the Doctor to come out of it, but no luck so far, alas. Wink

I was looking forward to seeing your Mad Hatter, and he doesn't disappoint- you did a great job, I love him.

A lefty will really appreciate that mug. I'm lefthanded and was just looking at it thinking what a comfy mug it looks. (You know how some mugs are just a comfy shape to hold?) I quite like the glaze. It reminds me a night sky over Egypt or something, especially when the light catches the glaze like stars.
