The Tardis is Finished

The back side is a thin black velvet that resembles light weight Ultrasuede.  I am quite happy with it although I could have done a better job on the roof.  Stitching it to resemble the photos wasn't as successful as I'd hoped.  Somehow the angle made the stitches look odd.  I would have done better to have ignored the photos and do stitches to fill a triangular space instead of doing stepped satin stitches.  But that only matters to me and it is a lesson I'll remember the next time I stitch a building.

Hope you like it!

  1. Jane,

    I think it has turned out amazingly well considering all the difficulties that went with this project and I think that we have all learned a thing or two from this experiment.

    The recipient of this gift should be very happy with it.

  5. Great job. I think it looks fantastic.

  6. I love this! You neice is so lucky to have an aunt who not only stitches for her, but does something special like this that is a one of a kind. Great job, and looking forward to your next project.
