The Blue Box by naturalshocks The Blue Box by naturalshocks
:dummy: Look at me, I'm so crafty!

So I crocheted a really cute chubby-looking TARDIS. It's about 18 cm tall, 9 cm wide. I used 100% cotton yarn, the windows and the signs are made of felt and it's stuffed with cotton batting. And it's just as cuddly on the outside as it is in the inside. :3

I have no idea how long it took, but sewing the letters on the police box signs took me 4 Doctor Who episodes. :lol: So there.

Special thanks goes to ~Sini-M who helped me out with the roof, check out her crocheted stuff, she's such an inspiration. :tighthug: And I also want to thank ~Valmonsa who happened to be with me while I was working on this and helped me to untangle the thread while I was sewing the windows on and mumbling profanities in every 10 minutes. :lol:

That is so cute! You did a really great job. I'm terrible at crocheting, but I can sew! Maybe I'll make a Tardis plushie myself...

You can make one. It's actually very easy, just crochet some rectangles and put them together. :P

I'm actually making a TARDIS right now, so I decided to look at what other people have done. This is so cute! I'm thinking I'll need help with the top, too >< But I'll try on my own, first.....

And is that River's notebook in the background?

Ah, it's finished! I've been meaning to comment forever, but I've been ill. It looks so squishy and soft, makes me want to cuddle it. The roof turned out great! Looking at the picture, it's exactly what I was trying to convey to you. I also think the windows turned out well, the lines are straight (something that always catches my eye). And may I say congrats on managing to sew on all the letters! Whew, makes my eyes and shoulders hurt just thinking about it :D

Wonderful work!

Thank you so much! :D And thank you *so* much for the tips. I ended up decreasing 2 in every corner and the roof looks brill. Plus, it was my favourite bit, had fun with that. :thumbsup: Sewing the letters was the most tedious thing I've ever done, though. :lol: I can't sew for beans, so that made it even more difficult. xD
