Stromas: I'm a new fan (as recently as November 2008), so hearing that before I even finished watching the seasons that Tennant was leaving... I feel jipped. I got all my DT!Doctor condensed, instead of wonderfully prolonged over the years. Ah well, that's what netflix is for, yeah?

Hahah, I can't imagine any Dalek being okay with being called Cuddles.. I'd keep an eye on that thing if I were you! I hope I get to see your Davros when you're done.

I'm so glad I watched the special on youtube... it hasn't even aired in the US yet! Awful!

But this is great! I love it so much, totally wisted.

I had heard that about whites and this was actually called 'natural', which I had assumed meant 'not bleached'. Guess I was wrong ^^

Hello! My name is Amanda, and I am a Doctor Who addict.
(waits as everyone says Hello).

I recently created proof of my addiction/obsession/problem when I had bought a new macbook. I wanted immediately to make a cover for it. So I did.

The pattern is my own, although basic guidelines (like how many stitches to cast on and how long to knit) came from a free pattern on Ravelry.



This is my first attempt at felting anything and the 'windows' felted very poorly.



The lining is a cotton from Joann's. I sewed the zipper on the lining pieces separately, then I sewed the "spine" last.  The felted exterior was sewn on by hand with a backstitch next to the zipper.



I 'embroidered' the letters on, using a lazy-daisy tacked down in a few places to keep the rounded letters open. Then I needlefelted them down, and thinned them from the original bulky-yarn width.





The Doctor was needlefelted freehand. ^^ I did use a reference for DT's profile though.




Thank you for visiting with me during this meeting of Whovians Anonymous.

*waves* I'm in! the 100 facts weren't so hard, I just hope they're things that'll spark some ideas.

Ahah! Fantastic! I wasn't expecting this while I was browsing craftster and now I am happy I stayed up late to do so!

Just incredible!

For the petticoat--I've heard that type of pleating called 'cartridge pleating', is this the same thing?

I would say it is cartridge pleating taken one step further. Instead of doubling over the fabric and then gathering it, it is done near the raw edge. The waistband is then attached one side at a time. No thread ever goes completely through one side of the waistband, through the fabric, to the other side. The raw edge of the skirt is completely encased in the waistband.  Normal cartridge pleating takes a fold and sews it to a finished edge, like the piped edge of a bodice, and not every miniature pleat is done individually, but more or less done in groups of two or three.

did you use rats in your hair? The plasticy netting ones or the stuffed stocking kind?

Sorry- leave it to the wigs girl to question the hair! I love how it all turned out (especially the hair lol)

I LOVE playing with rats - that's why I ask Smiley

I can't get rats to work, myself. No rats in this hairstyle ^^. No fake hair at all, actually. Thanks for the compliments!
