Sorry, I've been in Spain for some days and I didn't check te forum. I received ellemir's packet this morning and it's really AMAZING:

First of all, a zip bag in 10 suit fabric WITH jelly babies:

The inside is soo soft that I'm going to use it to carry my shiny external HD and avoid scratches  Wink.

Second, a K-9 plushie:

he is soft and beautifully embroided, with lots of details. Now I have something to squeeze this Sunday if Waters of Mars is so scary as they say  Grin.

And last, the best of all, MY OWN TARDIS:


This one is SO CLEVER and beautifully done, with embroided details and working light  Shocked. The inside is painted and note the cute console pincushion

Now I have everything I need to sew anywhere in time and space  Grin
Thanks a lot, ellemir

That tardis is amazing!!!  Such a good idea!  I am very jealous and I'm not even in this swap Tongue  I think a tutorial may be called for Wink

That Tardis sewing kit is incredible! Really clever design.

Duika, I'm really glad you like everything.

As for the sewing box, I saw the fab ones in earlier Doctor Who Swaps and was inspired. I've been making fabric covered boxes for years and decided I could make a pattern for one quite easily. I'll gladly share how I did this Although a detailed tutorial may take some time.
Main points: Decide on size for outside panels, and scale everything else to fit. My Panels on tardis were machined with a buttonhole stitch. Panels are cut accurately from thick cardboard.
 Police Box and other signs can be found on Tardis making sites. Scale to your design and print on fabric sheets. And the console is from an image found on the "Blue Peter" website (a UK kids programme).Plan carefully to avoid waste on sheets.
Choose fabric you love working with as you will be doing a lot of fiddly gluing and sewing. (I almost always use silk dupion, as it is crisp and I love the slubby texture, which is very forgiving.)  100% cotton is a good alternative.Iron pieces before attaching for best results. Fray check is good if your fabric frays. And a good glue that dries clear is essential.
I love simple solutions. The inside pattern was printed in a mix of acrylic paint  and textile medium using an empty cotton spool that had the right pattern.
Decide on contents before contruction so you can add ribbon where it is needed.
The pieces are hand sewn together (right sides together where possible).
And the light is an LED from a blue balloon I bought in a pack from the local supermarket. I have other colours still to use, in other projects. After posting the package, I found flashing LEDS in the same place, which I think might be even better.
I already have a request to make one for a Christmas present, and will eventually make one for myself.
Let me know if I've forgotten any important points.

Hey guys, sorry I've been absent, but everyone's stuff looks fabulous! I went to ren faire in houston this weekend and had a BLAST, but also had no internet access. I'm busy getting caught up right now.

That Tardis sewing kit takes the cake! Absolutely awesome. The stuffed K9 is cute too, but I really covet that Tardis.

So very in love with my package!

I love my Adipose Baby!

She even stands on her own!

There's also a shirt that my husband is so in love with he hasn't let me take a picture of it yet. Hopefully some time he'll send me a picture.
