Amigurumi TARDIS Plush by Craftigurumi Amigurumi TARDIS Plush by Craftigurumi
OMG >.<

I'm so happy to be done with this. :fallsover:

As promised, here is my version of a crocheted (aka amigurumi) TARDIS. I'm a bit of a detail enthusiast with my crafts/art and the TARDIS really tried my patience and desire near the end. I'd like to think the results made it worth it.

This is my first project to feature the use of paint (for the weathering effect/detail), stitched and written on felt. :D I even added latches on the bottom so the battery can be accessed and changed. It makes me much happy and was a true labor of love.

Picture taken with Doctor Dolls in attendance for height gauge and cause I thought it was only proper. ^_^ You can find better images of the Doctors on their own posts.

Time: 1 week (approx. 26-30 solid hours of work)
Materials: Yarn, Thread, Felt, Inking Pen, Watercolor Paint, Sound Module, Cardboard, polyfil.

The Doctor fully supports that the TARDIS is the only real way to travel.

Wow, this is great! A sound clip, too? That's really cool!
Can you tell me, how did you incorporate the layered look of the panel, the squares? Did you just crochet rows on top of the body of the tardis, or is that a different type of stitch? I'm working on my own Tardis, and this is one of the best one's I've seen. :] The detail is spot-on.

Thanks! :D
It took me about a week to create the initial pattern; which involved much trial and error. Even then I wasn't happy with the final result since I'm a detail freak, lol, obviously. The pattern in it's current form is over here: [link]. As with my dolls, layering here is a combination of illusion and real layers. I don't shy away from hand sewing like some crocheters. In regards to your inquiry specifically, the panels are created with a base an a top layer. Feel free to send me a pm if you have any more questions or anything about working on your own. :)

Thanks! Haha, trial and error is usually how it goes. That's neat that you used cardboard to give it support, I think I might try some craft foam or stiff felt for my own. And great, I was planning on sewing on rows to create the panneled look, I'll see how it goes. Thanks for the inspiration!
