1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Doctor Who TARDIS dress for my little girl on: November 07, 2013 02:34:38 PM
Thank you all!

Yes, I have taken to attaching all her straps that way, it totally avoids them slipping off her wee shoulders Smiley
2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Doctor Who TARDIS dress for my little girl on: November 07, 2013 06:30:03 AM
So, my daughter is a total Doctor Who nut. Even more so than her older brother, but nowhere near as crazy for the show as my husband and I Tongue So when i asked her what she wanted her costume to be this year, she shouted "TARDIS!"

And geek parent pride bubbled over.

So of course I wanted to make her not only a TARDIS outfit, but also something she would want to wear again. So I designed and made a poofy-bum blue TARDIS princess dress for her and she proudly adorns it at every opportunity and much to my joy has caused many an envious stare whilst at the shops!

Inspired by the gorgeous period dress in the episode "The Doctor's Wife", original design on the fly by me, fabric and notions from Spotlight.

N.B. It's a warm spring over here at this time of year, thus the no sleeves  Wink


Hullo Cheesy

All the little details: quilting cotton, soft tulle, elastic in the back, lace, paint pens

"yay, Mummy!!" (or so i assume... lol)

Thanks for your input!

DawnsTrees: The last one does have a line of different colour, since the stones are subjected to heat when i solder the jump rings I often find it brings out colours and patterns not seen in the stones beforehand Smiley

The first time I tried stone carving I was afraid of damaging myself too! I finally gave in to my curiosity and did my best to stay safe. I picked up a little rotary tool set at a dollar store for $15.00 and it came with grinding bits. It's not super fab but it did the job, though I have worn out a few of the bits now. I use a piece of scrap wood to hold the stone on and wear safety glasses and a paper dust mask so I don't get debris in my eyes or nose. I practiced on a few stones firstly, using the different shaped bits to get the hang of how much pressure to use and what angles gave the best result. To grind the holes I used a flat-pointed tapered grinding bit and just gently and patiently wore the hole through the stone. It really helps to have the stones semi-submersed in a bowl of water as it helps keep the drill bit from getting too hot and the stone from breaking. You can use an old ice cream container and pop a scrap of wood in the bottom and add enough water to just cover the stone. The water gets murky quite quickly which is why I don't suggest using too much water - you would lose sight of the stone pretty fast!
