Here is a bracelet I've been working on, took it apart about three times, now I just need more charms.



What I have on it so far:double heart, Union Flag, stethoscope, glasses, two sided face, wolf, hand, and a hot air balloon.
I have linked the blue chain in my attempt at chainmaille, but right now it won't stay flat so I can see myself taking it apart yet again. So far though, I kinda like it.
Let me know what you think!

What a good idea to find charms related to the series!

The only thing Dr. Who I am working on right now is that darn stripey scarf from season 14...I only have a bit more to go...I can't wait to wear it out and see how many fans come out of the woodwork! :D

I have poppet doctors #10 and #11 in the works.  It'll be quite some time before I have those done, though...I'm juggling a million projects at once right now  :-\

I am about to try and create a David Tennant Dr Who outfit for my 11yr old for a con. At least we already have the 3D glasses.

Does it have to be this year?
I am new and posting all sorts of stuff (learning the posting crafter ropes) and thought I would share this photo... a picture says a million words.
My daughter is at the Dr Who Experience in London comparing scarves. Looks like I was off on my beige color (should have been darker).

Post by: Juliana13 on February 10, 2012 05:44:34 AM
WOW you made that  :o the colour may be off but it's still great, no amazing!! It would be nice if it was a craft from this year but hey we all like to share  :D
I would like to start giving us monthly challanges too! I think that would be fun

Thanks for sharing the pic of the scarf you made, drue!!  It inspires me to finish mine!!  I only have the last 1/4 to do!

What yarns did you use?  I am using Vanna White so I think my "beige" is lighter as well, but I really don't mind at all...I think the important thing is the length and the stripes in order! :D

Fantastic, job!!!

I need to clean up my crafting space before I start another project, I could really do with a tardis, or at the very least a vortex manipulator. That way I'd have time to do that this weekend lol.

Last DW craft I made was in December and is posted over here  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=399332.0

I've been looking for an excuse to start some things though. I'm sad I missed the last several swaps. I just never notice these things until it's too late.

I love seeing all of the ideas...

Your scarf is amazing, drue. I have got to make my own. I'm sick of just looking at everyone else's, I need to wear one. :D

Samantha, I would wear that sweatshirt everyday. Lucky brother.

I used Vanna's beige too. I love knitting with her yarn. Keep on going it's such an easy pick up & put down project (as long as you remember to mark what stripe you are on ... as a senior citizen I need to keep good charts)

That hoodie is great and *love* the scarf! I got lucky and my sister and her friends knitted me one twenty odd years ago :) still have it and still toss it on every once in a while.
 
Have to make me a Tshirt  or hoodie cause on of the dads at my sons school keeps wearing his.... I am soooo jealous!

I participated in the One Tiny Thing Doctor Who Swap

I made buttons of my partner's favorite characters






And put them in a bag I knitted



I also decided to make an ebook cover that looks like a tardis

The last DW thing I made was in September. Which is depressing, I can't believe it's been that long. I made my little guy TARDIS baby legs, just thought I'd share. :]



I also made this around the same time. Unfortunately, I don't have a better picture. :[
Doctor Whoooooo tote!




I have a few planned for this year that I'm excited about. Also excited to share with you guys!

Loove the scarf. ^_^ I have so got to get around to knitting one.

mljohnston, I love the baby legs, but am dying over the fabric on the diaper cover! Where did you find that?! Found it. Yay!

Eiseldora~ Thanks for posting up the pics of the buttons, I couldn't really get a good look at them in out OTTDW gallery. I didn't realize you made so many, they're great!
mljohnston~ those baby legs are cool! Gotta get me some of that material too! I see bed spreads and pillow case being made! Where ever did you find it?

The tardis baby legs are adorable!

Also, love the Dr. Who owl bag!  :D

The tardis e cover is also a good idea!

Icy outside, so nowhere to go this Saturday night...decided to do some more on my scarf... :D  I am on the last dreaded green run...I think once I get past that, the rest will be a piece of cake..ugh...56 rows of green here I come!

Thank you. The hoodie was from Target. I found it on clearance in the men's section and was all excited.

Samantha~ that hoodie is awesome, I love the way you did the beams of light. What did you use for the stencil, freezer paper?

Thank you :)
Yes, I used freezer paper that I cut to size for my printer. Then I fed it into the printer and printed my stencil pattern on the paper side. With my printer I have to back the paper with a normal paper sheet to keep the freezer paper from curling and jamming. But that's easy enough to do.

The beams of light were done with painters tape. I think if I make another I'll add vortex detail around the tardis as well.



There are some really fun things in here! I neither knit or crochet. I keep meaning to learn.


Have you guys seen the doctorwhocrafts.com ? It's a tumblr blog with all sorts of fun things and ideas.

I made some jewelry for Julliana13 in the OTDWT swap recently.

A pocket watch inspired by the Family of Blood episodes and a weeping angel pendent:

A reverse stencil bag I made as an extra for the W13 swap.

After seeing an image on tumblr, my 6 year old son wanted Doctor Who Valentines to take to school for his class party.
So we snagged the image from here http://areyoumarriedriver.tumblr.com/post/17569775787/the-kids-valentines
and recolored it and changed some text.

We printed them on cardstock that was white on one side and tardis blue on the other. And them of course added a sweetie to each one.

I'm now even more in love with my child, if that was possible lol.

For the OTTDW swap this is what I made for my awesome partner ehinders




the necklace I took straight off her pinerest everything else was extra but it was the extra TARDIS key the shrinky dinks she loved best! I don't blame her, I loved it too, gonna make one for myself  :P

Nice job on the shrinky dinks!!

My gaming dice need a new home and I had a little magnetic closure cardboard box in my craft stash. So what better place to hide things than in River’s diary?

It’s still somewhat of a work in progress. I haven’t finished the paint on it or sealing it. But I’m fairly happy with it. It’s all cardboard and scrapbook paper put together with hot glue and colored with cheap acrylic paints. It’s 3x4 inches.

I think I might add some ‘pages’ to it once it dries.




Title: Re: Doctor Who Craftalong 2012
Post by: alwaysinmyroom on February 20, 2012 06:46:57 AM
Very clever!  You do nice work covering a box...and so small!

I love the inside...

I made major progress on my Dr. Who scarf!!  I am on the last major section...I knew this thread would inspire me to finish!

I was in the most recent one tiny Dr. Who swap. My partner liked the 9th doctor and liked little bits of art, so this was what I came up with. It's got more of a 3d look to it than this shows; the doctor is further forward than the rest.



Title: Re: Doctor Who Craftalong 2012
Post by: Juliana13 on February 26, 2012 11:25:25 AM
I thinks that's awesome that you could draw him!! Looks great! I didn't realize in the swap that it was 3D.


Title: Re: Doctor Who Craftalong 2012
Post by: bananaleg on February 26, 2012 02:08:03 PM
I've been lurking and not commenting... so now i will comment on the awesomeness.

All of those buttons... i pine for them. I collect buttons, and i need some Doctor Who ones! The knitted bag is awesome, and so is the ebook cover! If i ever get any sort of ebook reader, i'm so making one.

The TARDIS baby legs are the cutest things. :)
Oh, but the Doctor Whooo tote! Adorable!

Very cool pocket watch.

Love the stencil bag. Stencils are awesome.

Doctor Who valentines! If i have kids someday, they're handing out Doctor Who valentines.

That pendant with the TARDIS sign... awesome. I would totally wear it.

River Song journal box! Love it!

That Chris Eccleston looks so good. And the blues are so pretty. Great job!


I haven't done any Doctor crafting yet this year, but i just sold a hat i made last year. The girl lives in Australia and will soon be shaving her hair to raise money for cancer patients' families, and she's going to need a hat until her hair grows out a bit. I was more than happy to send her one of mine. :)
Anyway, here it is: (http://s4.photobucket.com/albums/y106/angalicious/craftsies/?action=view&current=IMG07460-20120201-1537.jpg)

That hat is awesome!  I was trying to think of a way to show I am a fan without being over the top...I think if I wore a hat like that, only Dr. Who fans would know and I would not be known as the crazy old lady wearing a 14 foot striped scarf! :D


Title: Re: Doctor Who Craftalong 2012

I saw this when it came out recently, and made everyone watch it lol. It's very true. Never apply logic. Also, how is it possible to be that adorable? I can't really fault the girl at his house. If I were a 13 year old fan who knew where he lived...

MARCH CHALLENGE:  create a TARDIS. using any medium you feel want create a TARDIS! It can be just for show, a useful box, wearable or anything else your imagination will let create. The universe is the limit! You have until the end of March to submit your project.

I made some Dalek wristwarmers for skittlebub for the Aussie Wish Swap :D



And im half was through a Tardis craft, so Im liking the March challenge :P


Title: Re: Doctor Who Craftalong 2012
Post by: indigo_roses on March 06, 2012 04:18:41 PM
These were made last fall, but I figured I'd show them to you. I made them for my partner in the Random Swap, before I got into Doctor Who.







Now that I've actually watched the show as opposed to just searching for stills online, there would be a few changes if I would make these projects again.

I think I'll be able to fulfill the March challenge... but it's a swap item, so I won't say any more about it now.  ;) I also hope to eventually make the amazing TARDIS socks, but I know that won't happen before March is over. I need to a) learn how to knit socks, b) learn how to do colorwork in knitting, and c) practice making socks before I make the TARDIS ones.

I love those Dalek wristwarmers. Look great, kwiltykate.

Despite not having been into Doctor Who, I think those turned out great, indigo_roses!

I've been meaning to make myself a felt TARDIS for a while. Maybe I'll finally get to it this month!

I make my stamps using this cream colored stuff made for carving stamps. You can get it at any chain craft store. I know Speedball makes a kit for beginning carvers that has everything you need to get started, including directions! I prefer the greyish/cream colored stuff over the pink stuff, I think it's nicer (can you tell I completely forget the real name of the stuff at the moment?  ::)).

Fun foam will definitely work! I save jar lids and pieces of scrap wood...cut out the foam, glue it on...

Tardis...what to make...I seriously want to make that spiral afghan...but no way would I finish be the end of March!

Ok--going to work on it this weekend!

I sent this pillow cover off to spidermom in the Crafted Cushion Cover Swap. It was attempt #2. My first pillow had slightly different background fabric (still blue and spacey), and the stencil was the quote "Did I mention it also travels in time" in the shape of the TARDIS. However, for some reason when I went to remove the stencil, the paint decided to stretch and partially peel off with the stencil.  >:( So, that was scrapped and an easier stencil was chosen for cover 2.

How often do they have big Doctor Who swaps.

I did a OTT, but didn't know if there was a schedule for the big swaps.

I just saw the trailer (http://www.craveonline.com/tv/previews/185477-doctor-who-season-7-teaser-trailer) for the new season...so excited!

MY TARDIS IS DONE  ;D  It's made completely of paper. I got the idea and basic design from something I saw on pinterest. Then I modified it to make it taller.


The doors open up and who is waiting for me? Only David Tennent!!


It opens up again to show that it is bigger on the inside to hold secrets or jewlery or whatever you want.


So whatcha think??

I made a doctor who backpack for my son's 3rd birthday. The best thing is, of all the things I've made him, this is the one he really loves  ;D
The pattern is Made By Rae's Toddler Backpack pattern, which is awesome, and suprisingly not as difficult as I thought it would be.

Cute pouch!  I am trying to find the right blue to make a Tardis bag--do you guys know if there is a specific color?

Did you guys see the awesome bag that sheepblue made?  All Dr. Who related patches!

Thanks for the link to the shawl--I just printed it...I was thinking that after I finish my Dr. Who scarf, I probably will only wear it to my friends' houses, but I would wear that shawl everywhere... :D

I made a second Doctor Who pillow cover for the second round of the pillow cover swap! It's a patchwork of the colors my partner requested, mostly because then I could include more of my ideas.  ;) I chose to do it in embroidery and while it's not the greatest stitching, I still think it turned out well.  :)

This will be my first time sharing any of my crafting on Craftster.  I just found the craftalong forum and I am excited!

Here is my TARDIS glass case. I got new glasses in March and needed a way to make sure I used my glass case, because I would just never use the plain boring ones that gave me.  So I found an old blue one of my husband's and tried my hand at a little stenciling.  I have never stenciled anything before though, so I just had to fake it.  I printed out a picture of the TARDIS on a piece of clear contact paper and then cut out the openings and used it for a stencil.  The paint leaked under the contact paper a bit, but I dont care. :)



I love all the Dr. Who crafts on here!  I cant wait to try some of my own.

ha ha I would have loved to have been there when you told your hubby that the old blue case would soon be a tardis!!  Way better....did you have to seal the paint with anything?


Title: Re: Doctor Who Craftalong 2012
Post by: Handmade Redhead on May 16, 2012 06:29:36 PM
I sprayed some acrylic over the paint to seal it.  I need to buy better acrylic though.  This one is still kinda tacky.  When my cat lays on the case, some of her fur sticks and I have to pull it off.


Title: Re: Doctor Who Craftalong 2012
Post by: alwaysinmyroom on May 17, 2012 07:54:39 AM
oh thanks for the info...if you use the finest sandpaper over most sticky types of sealants, it seems to get rid of the sticky...try it on the back or something...I use that trick when I do any art work that requires mod podge, clear srpay paint, gloss medium, etc.  I might have to spray one of my old cases blue...I can't seem to find any the right color!


Title: Re: Doctor Who Craftalong 2012

It's a plastic binder divider. With all these cheap back to school supplies you could probably pick one up easily.

This was a demo I made when teaching teens how to cut out stencils. It was my first plastic stencil. Before I was using one time use freezer stencils.

I hope this stands up to multiple uses.

Post by: alwaysinmyroom on July 17, 2012 10:30:29 AM
That is a cool stencil--and I like that you used office supplies...I am sure it will hold up much better than freezer paper...you could probably use the spray that quilters use to hold it down temporarily...

Both of those magnets look so cool! Nice work!

On pinterest, i saw that if you draw on a plain mug with Sharpie and bake it, it well stay. So i gave a couple mugs to my nieces and went to work on my own. It decided to have a theme.
 
 
 
 
 
 

On the mug:
TARDIS, with “vworp vworp” sound effects
a banana (bananas are good)
a sonic screwdriver
“dreamer of improbable dreams” on the handle
petrichor: the smell of dust after rain.
tea-serving Dalek, “Would you care for some TEA!”
and some timey-wimey bubble things

Well, some of the Sharpie did fade after the first washing. It seemed to mostly be the colors, though. I'm wondering if maybe i was too light with it. I'm going to try to go over it and re-bake it. Hopefully a second baking will help.

Post by: alwaysinmyroom on August 05, 2012 02:57:28 PM
It works just like a regular swap except that you privately ask someone to be your swap partner...hopefully, they have time and will say yes!  Then you agree on what you want to swap, let the organizer know and then you make stuff!  Read the blurbs on the past IYP swaps for more info...

Hey, guys--just wanted to post that thanks to your encouragement and support, I finished my Dr. Who scarf!!!!!  I need to weave in a million ends before I post pics, but the knitting is finally done! :D

Title: Re: Doctor Who Craftalong 2012
Post by: silentblair on September 11, 2012 02:58:29 PM
Thanks bananaleg!

I used the spiral staircase shawl pattern (free) on ravelry by LizAnn Petch http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/spiral-staircase-shawl (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/spiral-staircase-shawl)
Worsted weight Vanna's Choice Lion Brand yarn, size 8 needles, and not as many repeats to achieve the size. Doing that substitution really made the knitting go fast!

After that base scarf was done I winged it...
For the flames, knitted 2 strands (yellow and orange) of fingering weight in various lengths of i-cord.
The TARDIS was done with a grey/blue varigated koigu along with a fuzzy lightweight yarn and just "eyed" the sizes for the exploded parts.
The white for the TARDIS was white embroidery thread (all 6 strands) duplicate stitched.

To attach, I used basic blue sewing machine thread and tacked it on as best I could.
It was fun to do and I must admit, I'm a bit proud of it.   ;)


Title: Re: Doctor Who Craftalong 2012

Great Whocrafts! My spouse and I are loving the reinvigorated series, though I do miss K9 from the episodes of my youth! We've made all sorts of things, so I'll get some pix to post up to show off. We have a cabinet full of our various Dr Who crafts by us and traded.

I recently completed a tea wallet with the Dalek serving tea from the Churchill episode where the Daleks had forgotten they hated humans. I'm planning to make more of them, for sure!

I'm working on a Ten-inspired scarf, but i ran out of brown, so i can't finish yet. I think i love it, except i wish I'd gotten better-quality yarn for it. Next time.

 

I can't decide if i want fringe, or not. I'm not usually a fringe person, but i kind of like the way it looks without the ends woven in... so i think i might.


Title: Re: Doctor Who Craftalong 2012

So many super Doctor Who projects!  Got me thinking about what Doctor inspired items I would like to add to my Christmas list.  Maybe some Doctor Who inspired ornaments for our little tree...I could even hang them on a mobile after the holidays are over?  :)

i have yet to actually see Dr Who... but my last swap partner was into it and my cousin is too. And turns out half my friends.... soooo... here's what I made recently:

Xmas stocking:


And a bunch of stuff: bookmark, necklace and matching bracelet, a bracelet that says "I wanted to see the Universe so I stole a time lord and ran away". and stitch markers. The timey wimey button was purchased.

Post by: bananaleg on December 30, 2012 05:55:07 PM
Yay, always! It looks awesome! You'll never be cold again.

How did you weave in your ends? I've seen some ideas on a Doctor Who scarf site, but i keep wondering how well they stay... if they're actually hidden...
I want to make one so badly, but all of the ends are what are really scaring me away.


Title: Re: Doctor Who Craftalong 2012
Post by: alwaysinmyroom on December 30, 2012 06:06:34 PM
I weaved in the ends after every three or four colors...since it is all garter stitch, it is pretty easy to weave into the bumps...if you follow the guidelines on how to change colors (you do three-four stitches of a color before changing...), you can weave in the prior color in the row above and the new color in the row below...doing it as you go helps a lot! :D

In my second picture, if you look at the bottom right where the beige and the toffee are, you can see what I mean...

That makes me wish i had an embroidery machine.

I made myself a sort of TARDIS bomber hat (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=418523.0).

I had tons of leftover yarn from my Dr. Who scarf, so I made some hats...I used each of the colors in each hat...only keeping one for myself, the one with the burgandy cuff!



I am working on a Dalek hat next...

Loving the hats.

After seeing the Christmas special, i fell in love with a scarf the Doctor was wearing. Thanks to some tumblr people helping me find high quality screenshots (http://bananaleg.tumblr.com/post/38863479731/attention-who-fans-knitters), I'm fairly certain I've figured it out.
 
What do you think?

I made this for the Hoopla Swap Wordy Round in August. I didn't know there was an awesome craftalong where I could post it!

As I am sure everyone here already knows, this is the 10th Doctor:



And I made this ornament for my tree this year. (It's a glow in the dark bead on top.)

You could always try the shirt that has the weeping angel face on the inside for the wearer to pull it over their head.

I've seen those, and they are so funny.

I have some perfect fabric for a project for 10, anyone looking for a personal swap with a wall hanging or a pillow from me? I really want to do something for someone else who loves Doctor Who. PM if interested!

Thanks

Those t-shirts are really cool!

What a gorgeous case!

There was a special on BBC about the Dr. Who following...I only got to see parts of it, but it was really fun to learn about the Daleks and how they were thought up...did anyone see it?  It was on this weekend and it might be available on Comcast Demand...I saw a few things I thought would be fun to craft but I want to see the whole thing...

Made this project bag for the triple versus swap:



It turned out pretty good. Didn't really use a pattern, just rough cut around a bag I liked the shape of. Tardis is freezer paper stenciled on.

Love how the blue is so perfect that it blended right in with the tardis!

Did you make up your own stencil?  Love that design!


Title: Re: Doctor Who Craftalong 2012-2013 and Beyond!
Post by: ehinders on February 08, 2013 11:51:32 AM
Thanks. The design is not mine. I googled Tardis stencil and picked one that worked best. I really wanted almost a reverse stencil type look because that blue fabric was the perfect Tardis color. :)

Hi, I posted regarding the Dr Who stitch-a-long also on the New Theme Swap Thread. It was then moved to Needlepoint and then deleted. Something about Craftster not allowing outside stitch or craft-alongs. I was just asking if anybody heard of it and was going to do it. It's no longer on the New Swap Theme Thread either.  But I'm also doing it and was wondering if anyone would be posting their progress.

I am doing it but posting here...I have decided to stitch on black fabric but I need to make the black fabric galaxy fabric first...the first stitching is relatively simple so I hope to have it done before the end of the month...you can also post on the hoopalong because any subject is allowed there...

Post by: angielou1 on May 22, 2013 11:18:26 AM
You mean you're actually going to MAKE the fabric? or make the black fabric look like a galaxy? Have you checked out spoonflower.comm .Their fabric is awesome. They got Tardis and Dr. WHO fabric. I just can't afford them ::) I got the second pattern. I was thinking of personalizing each panel to the character. The first doctor black and white or variations of grey. What you think?


Title: Re: Doctor Who Craftalong 2012-2013 and Beyond!
Post by: alwaysinmyroom on May 22, 2013 11:31:27 AM
I know there are a lot of galaxy fabrics available, but I want to try my hand at doing it myself! :D

I have a bolt of black cotton that I plan on experimenting with...

I love your idea of personalizing each panel!!  I am doing the first doctor in white as well...I think I want to put dates on each panel, too...


Title: Re: Doctor Who Craftalong 2012-2013 and Beyond!
Post by: alwaysinmyroom on May 28, 2013 10:02:17 AM
Ok--I got the First Doctor and half of the Second Doctor done!  I decided against using my own galaxy fabric for this quilt since I wanted to be able to wash the quilt a lot and heard reports that the fabric paint will eventually wash or fade away!

I hope anyone who is interested in this project will try it...it is a fun mystery and just the boost I need to stay interested in embroidery! ;D

I so want to participate in the stitch a long, but I have NEVER made a quilt before... I printed out the first two Doctors... I just have to figure out what kind of material I need for the quilt and how much of what I need and go down and buy it so I can start... I just have a few more swaps to finish first. ;)


Title: Re: Doctor Who Craftalong 2012-2013 and Beyond!
Post by: alwaysinmyroom on May 29, 2013 06:43:55 AM
deathbeforedishes...this is definitely a beginner quilt so if you are going to jump in, do it! The stitching is the hardest part for me as I am not much of an embroiderer...as a matter of fact, I already changed up the pattern on Dr. Who #2 to suit my messy style... and I changed the First Doctor to suit my personal preference as well...I am not going to do the "quilt" part until all of the Drs. are finished in case I want to make something other than a quilt...I think these would make great tote bags as well...

U could use fat quarters.I  just doing the panels first. NOt sure if I want to make a quilt yet either. Not a quilter. BUT I LOVE DR WHO ;D or if you find a fabric you like.. about 1/4 of a yard. just enough for the picture to fit and the hoop.
My first time embroidering and a stitch-a-long also.


Title: Re: Doctor Who Craftalong 2012-2013 and Beyond!
Post by: alwaysinmyroom on May 29, 2013 09:40:48 AM
I made 12x12 squares, but you really only need 10x10 to hoop...I got 4 squares across using 1/4 yard, so to do 12, I bought a yard of fabric (in case I screw up!)...

I finished up Dr. Who #2 and #3...currently working on my favorite, the Fourth Dr. Who!!  I hope to have him done as the Fifth Dr. is coming out today!! :D

I filled in the "1" with red because it seemed a bit plain...so...

also had to change the "2" to red as I did not like the pale green...I think I am going to make the border of the quilt red so it will fit right in...


Lots of red... ;D

trying to keep up with the Dr. Who embroidery/quilt project! Where is the Fourth Dr.?
Well, that is my favorite Dr., the one with the Dr. Who scarf, so I am taking my time embroidering more colors into his scarf...I am using my own scarf to get the colors right...in the meantime, here is the Fifth Dr. Who!

Anyway, here is my favorite Dr. Hoop posed on my Dr. Who gigantic scarf...I added the colors to the scarf in the same pattern as my scarf to make it more "authentic"...yeah, geeking it out...

Perler bead tardis box:



A glitter portrait of the 10th doctor:



and finally the 4th doctor's scarf:

The only reason I had enough time was because it was an invite your own partner swap and we didn't have to wait for signups to end to know who we were swapping with. That gave me an extra 15 days.

Hi All,
glad to find a bunch of fellow Who'vians here :)

I am currently working on knitting a teensy 4th Doctor Scarf to go on a Doctor Who Tote-bag I'm making for myself...
My knitting needles are toothpicks though, so the progress is rather slow... and I haven't been able to find the exact colour threads that would work for this so it's not "exact"... but it'll do...  ;) and I'll of course post pix when I have some... woot

Bad Wolf and the TARDIS key:

Sooo many fab projects here and so much inspiration! I've not done anything Doctor Who-ish yet (not even a scrapbook page!!), but have plans for a crocheted Doctor Who Christmas ornament and some Doctor Who Hats/gloves. That's my short term plans. For longer term I plan a quilt or two ... thank you so much for posting the link for the DW-SAL. Really want to get my needlecrafts hoop out for that one!

alwaysinmyroom - your embroidery looks fab (loving that fabric!), can't wait to see how you put the blocks together!

Post by: Inselaeffchen on August 27, 2013 12:57:33 PM
I'll have a go at tardis wrist warmers - or maybe dalek ones. ;)

Always - are you doing only embroidery or cross stitch too? I've done lots of cross stitch, but have not tried embroidery yet, so wonder how it will be stitching onto normal fabric instead of cross stitch fabric. :o  Also, is it very hard to do embroidery on darker fabrics (what is the fabric called you used for your Doctors? Who's the designer, if you don't mind me asking?)? I know it's really hard for cross stitch, as you have to search for the holes. :) Sorry for all those questions, I'm currently browsing online for fabrics I could use for the DW-SAL but cannot decide if I should go for lighter or darker fabrics.

Thanks.


Title: Re: Doctor Who Craftalong 2012-2013 and Beyond!
Post by: alwaysinmyroom on August 27, 2013 02:30:32 PM
basically, you take the free pattern and lay it on the fabric...I tape it to my working area...you lay a piece of this transfer paper, which is white, under the pattern and draw on the fabric...I use a wooden stylus which has a rounded end...then you just stitch however you want...I am not an accomplished stitcher.. I just stab and pull and stab again..a running stitch? or backstitch?  Whatever I feel like...

The fabric I used is plain old quilters cotton from Joann Fabrics that I got for 40% off a yard...

I can cross stitch, but I am struggling with cross stitching on fabric as you have to use waste canvas and for me, it is very hard!

Welcome!  You can also do a search at the top right hand corner to find other Dr. Who items...and there always seems to be a Dr. Who Swap with lots of goodies! ;D

Post by: Inselaeffchen on September 27, 2013 08:46:35 AM
HAH, finally managed my first Doctor Who craft item!! :D

A couple dropped stitches, and a few missing rows (lots of interruptions and stop and go with the Hobbits around), but you can still make out what it's supposed to be.... Well, the motive at least! :) It's supposed to be a wash cloth, and I still have to cast off etc. Thinking of doing more of Lindsay's patterns on Ravelry (http://www.ravelry.com/designers/holynarf-lindsay) and work them into a blanket.

Now to get the Hobbits to the grandparents and then look into doing the cast off... haven't done that in AGES!

PS: I've never done any knitting other than garter stitch, and definitely didn't follow any patterns, so I'm quite chuffed with the result (if I may say so myself)  ;)  ;D

Bumping the thread a bit. ;) I've done some Doctor Who items end of last year for swaps etc. And the pumpkin carving as well, of course.


Crochet Dalek (egg cozy but I made it into a stuffy toy) for the One Small Doctor Who Swap


Doctor Who cookies for the 50th Anniversary


Tardis side of a double sided Geeky swap mug rug


...and one of this year's pumpkins.

That's me for the time being! ;)

Hello fellow Whovians!

I just discovered this thread and thought I'd jump in. (And... it looks like it's been pretty quiet around here lately. ;) )

I have a friend having a baby next month and they are doing up the baby's room in Doctor Who... So... I hope to make them a couple of things. I will post them here to help to keep me accountable, and on track, I hope. :D

I want to make the following:
- A photo album with the tardis on the front
- A simple quilted crib blanket with the tardis
- A stuffed adipose for cuddling

I think that's it. ;)
I hope that there is still Who stuff happening out there!

I'm going to take a kick at a Doctor Who quilt, which I expect to be the death of meas I want to do some serious embroidery work on it, so I don't think I'll be making another cross stitch for a while. However, I definitely intend to continue crafting Doctor Who, I just caught up and now I'm 150% obsessed with it! lol

So I made this bracelet:



It features two hearts per Tardis and a handy dandy sonic screwdriver ;)

we discovered the dr. who dvd collection at the library, and we have been missing so much! for years, people who like things that i like had talked about dr. who, and now i get it. i sent this in the 4x6 art swap, it started with a random sketch, and the quote really pulled it together, i'm working on another variation built around a tardis.



the text was origionally in white crayon, then i went over it in watercolors and sprinkled salt on the wet paint to create the speckles.

Alwaysinmyroom if your stamp is small, you can use a stayzon ink pad to stamp onto fabric. It's waterproof and most craft stores carry them. I ve used it to make canvas tote bags as gifts. It works best on a smooth fabric not a fuzzy one like felt. I ve also found inktense watercolor pencils work well for adding color to a stamped image and are permanent after the initial drying.

i used this quote in the piece for a swap, this time it's for my daughter. same quote, but with the tardis and in colored pencil.

 in real life the background is more gray than beige. she is really happy with it. i'm also working on some shrinky dinks for her.

So… this is my first time posting in this thread, but I made this and thought it might fit here.



Inspired by a post on Pinterest, I made a beaded 4th Doctor scarf. (It was sooooo much work xD)

I hope this thread picks up...I have been watching past episodes and found a bunch more things I want to make!

Your beaded necklace is lovely and well done...I know it took hours of work!

I've done a couple of things for the HP & Nerd Battle Craftalongs but always forget to post here. Will update later this week.

Also hoping to start the DW SAL on Fandominstitches soon - Did you get more patches done for that one, alwaysinmyroom?
