ProcrastaStitch has recently hit the nerdy cross-stitch market. They have fun patterns and book marks and other geekery over on their Etsy shop.
They also have a fun tumblr where you can keep up to date with them and their many projects. I love needlework and I’m always happy when I see needlework+fandom.
After the cut we have a few words from Emma and Lyndsey themselves! Continue reading
felony_melanie over at Reddit showed off the closet door and wall she recently painted to look like the TARDIS in outer space. felony_melanie is a professional artist, and this was for a little boy. He was in the hospital and when he came home this was in his room.
Her next mural is at a middle school to paint their rotunda like a South Carolina salt marsh.
The 50th anniversary of Doctor Who is fast approaching and my answer is of course to craft all the Doctor Who things. Now not even I can knit The Scarf in a week, but there are quite a few smaller items that one can get their hands on. Hyde & Co. designs has one of best small 5th doctor knits I’ve ever seen. This free pattern is a great small knit for the next week.
Fifth doctor not your style? How about the Tardis Mitts by SpillyJane knits? The pattern includes fingerless mitts if a full mitten is not your speed.
Or how about Bowties are Cool fingerless gloves by yours truly if you want to go the quietly nerdy route?
I can’t really say it any better than the original poster of this geekcraft – the perfect gift for “what to give the fan WHO has everything:” a Dr. Who TARDIS Snuggie.
How clever is this? Take a regular blue Snuggie, and, ahem, Doctor it up into a TARDIS. Love her tip for printing the “Public Telephone” verbiage onto a cotton panel then ironing it on.
Can you think of a Who fan on your list who might appreciate this gift? Or perhaps just maybe yourself?

It’s finally May, the sun is shining and every country seems to have some kind of holiday right now. Yes, it’s time for a festive craft!
Instructable’s Mostlymade shows us some heavily detailed instructions for a TARDIS pinata. For those of you who don’t want to break down anything that even remotely looks like a police box, the pinata comes with pull strings. However, if you’re sure the TARDIS doesn’t like you, feel free to use a baseball bat. Now, wouldn’t it be great if this one was bigger on the inside too? Imagine all the candy that could fit into it…
I absolutely adore this wibbly wobbly TARDIS sewing box!! Joesuplicki on Craftster made this amazing sewing box from scratch! What a fantastic idea! I would love to have a suitably geeky sewing box for all my geeky crafts! I love the attention to detail, down to the character pins and the details inside the TARDIS (it’s bigger on the inside!). I wish I had the skills to make one of these!
