Okay, I am so excited about this I could squeal! In fact, maybe I am right now!

My husband and I love Doctor Who. He started later than me, but has proved worthy to be called a Doctor Who fan. I wanted to do something special for him for our first Christmas together, but he is a difficult person when it comes to presents. A few weeks ago, after watching him lust after a few Doctor Who items on Think Geek, I came up with this idea.

Behold! The "Blink" hoodie!


*Back*


*Front*

Here is a close up of the angel:


And here is the wording:


Let it be noted that this was not my first time using the bleach stencil technique with freezer paper, but it was my first hoodie to stencil. I hope he likes it!!!!

The Doctor: I do!
Jack: Who looks at a screwdriver and thinks, "Woo, this could be a little more sonic."?
The Doctor: What, you've never been bored? Never had a long night? Never had a lot of cabinets to put up?

Thank you for all of your kind words!
Husband dearest simply LOVES the hoodie! Seriously! He wears it every day to work Smiley

Juliana13, I looked up a picture of one of the weeping angels online and traced up a stencil as best as I could on some freezer paper. I'm rather accident-prone, so I have plenty of "love bites" from my x-acto knife.
