Make Your Own Tardis Charging Station

As Fall approaches, it’s a great time to get organized, and what better way to clean up the clutter than with your very own Tardis Phone Charging Station!  Check out this lovely  tutorial by Haley Pierson-Cox from the blog The Zen of Making (published in its entirely on Make.com)! She’s got step-by-step photos and even a downloadable PDF pattern to get you started.  I imagine it would be pretty simple to size this cute little Tardis up or down to custom fit your own phone or iPod. Plus, the use of plastic canvas helps ensure all your stitching is even and looks fantastic (so no worries if you believe you can’t hand sew!).
