tardis messenger bag - work in progress - part 1
I have been OBSESSED now with a few TARDIS messenger bags that I've seen online. And I finally bit the bullet and said - I can make that!
So I started with this pattern:
I decided to make the bag in a lovely royal blue denim.
The hard part has been so far is making the bag look like the TARDIS. My first decision was how to make the police call box sign. At first I was contemplating using fabric paint and a freezer paper, but I was worried that it would eventually end up looking messy. Instead I opted to embroider the sign instead.
I started out typing the words for a sign in Gill Sans and I cut the words out with my trusty Xacto knife. .
Once cut out (which took me so very long) I decided to use it as a stencil and took a white marking pencil to trace out the sign. From there I began hand embroidering the sign.
