I made this for the TV Addict swap and my partner has messaged me to say she's received it so I guess it's safe to post now  Smiley

I wanted to make a Doctor Who themed bag for my partner and decided that as I'm trying to teach myself how to embroider at the moment I should probably bite the bullet and have a go at my own design. I tried a few different transfer techniques and in the end chose to just draw it straight on (using a compass) and some help from my far more artistically inclined boyfriend!

Here's the bag itself:

And a close up of the stitching (I tried to use a couple of ditterent styles but nothing too adventurous at this stage  Wink )

And here's the fob-watch it's based on - the symbols on the front are from The Doctor's home, Gallifrey:

I learnt that it takes me a lot of concentration to sew neat circles, but I'm pretty please with how it turned out  Smiley

Oh...and hanging from the strap is a little dalek toy (who was not best pleased about being turned into a keyring...apparently it's not being very respectful towards a superior alien race  Wink )

Thanks for looking! Any feedback about my stitching would be welcomed (I'm really enjoying learning at the moment - I'm finding it to be the most rewarding craft I've tried to date)  Smiley

Wow! That's awesome! Great job, I'm really awful at embroidering circles, but you did well. Also, love the keychain!

LOVE!  I'm totally jealous of your stitching, I've been (sort of?) embroidering off and on for years, and your stitches look awesome! 

And I just had to add I totally recognized the design from the homepage...so fabulous job there too Cheesy  Bet your partner loves it!

What a lucky swap partner...lol.  Smiley  I think you did a great job stitching the circles! I also find as a new stitcher that circles are quite difficult to stitch.  The Dalek was a nice touch!

Love it! Your stitching looks great. Also, I want one now, and I don't even carry bags much!! Smiley

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

It is so beautiful, how could you bear to give it away? I would have had it framed and proudly put on display.

Thanks everyone!  Smiley

I enjoyed making it so much that I might just have to make another one to cart my work stuff around in - maybe with a slightly different arrangement of circles this time   Smiley
