I finished this bag many, many, many months ago, but sat on it (not literally, although the cats did) until now as it was a gift for my sister for Christmas.
You might have guessed that I like Doctor Who. As does my sister. I wanted to make her a bag, and figured it would be the perfect coming together of timelines to make her a Doctor Who themed bag. The “Allons-y” phrase was uttered by the 10th Doctor, played by David Tennant. The exterior is a TARDIS blue, in as close to woodgrain as I could get.
The bowtie fabric is a nod to my favorite Doctor, the 11th, played by Matt Smith. Alas, I did not have any fez fabric to use, but bowties are cool. And hey, I fit the entirety of space and time inside the interior pocket.
Bonus inclusion of another gift I made for that side of the family! These little quilted letters were made for my New Niece using this tutorial from some layer cake squares.
