Hi everyone. I'm finally back with a follow-up to my dark mantle... for your consideration, I present, the crochet Tardis. Now for a little back story, at some point after Thanksgiving, a professor approached me with an interesting challenge: crochet a Dr. Who-themed item as a Christmas gift for her husband. I very rarely accept commissions, but an open ended challenge like this intrigued me and, given the time restraints (she was leaving the country for Christmas, so I had less than 3 weeks- 2 weeks of which were grad school finals  Cry), I knew it would be a fun challenge. So here is the product of my labor. Now I have many problems with this final project, but I'm working on a second one to redeem myself. One of my main problems with this final product is that the windows remain unfinished; I try to be a miracle worker, but something had to give on this project and the windows were sacrificed in order for Santa to deliver this on time. They have assured me over and over again that it's ok, but I can't help my self-loathing. ANYWAY, enough babbling. I hope you enjoy the pictures and if there is enough interest, like with my previous work, I can post a pattern  Smiley. Thanks!!

The Tardis. If you notice the DVD shelf in the background you can get an idea about the scale of the project.

And some close ups.....

Did I mention it is functional  Grin... it's current owner is using it to store his Dr. Who DVD collection... (it's fully lined)

This was just for fun...  Cool

Even with the time crunch, I think you did a wonderful job! It's the most appropriate place to keep your Dr. Who DVDs. Cheesy It would also be pretty cool to stuff it so that you can have a squishy tardis! Just random ideas that pop into mind....Smiley

OMG!! That has got to be the BEST Tardis I've ever seen!! I have got to make one! My children and I are all Dr. Who fans and that looks like it would be the right size to cover one of the icing buckets they use in the bakeries!

Great work, you have been rocked and wisted!

That is brilliant! I kept thinking about making one for my nephew for Christmas but didn't get round to it, yours is far better than I had vaguely planned - if you posted a pattern I, for one, would be very, very pleased then I could make one for his birthday next month (and then one for my daughter and one for husband and then one each for my other 5 nephews....)
