Wibbley-wobbley, timey-wimey stuff

My son-in-law Andrew does some amazing drawings!  he also does portraits and will have a booth at the upcoming Phoenix Comicon.

So, I have been crafting away on geeky things like The Hobbit inspired dwarf gloves, kid sized super hero gloves, some characters, and some wibbley-wobbley, timey-wimey stuff...

like this tote.  It may seem like an ordinary bag to you... but for fans of Doctor Who, this is a great joke!  You see, the Doctor has this time machine called a TARDIS (Time And Relative Dimension In Space). 

The TARDIS looks like a blue police phone box but in reality, that's just because its chameleon chip is stuck.

The coolest thing about the TARDIS, and the one thing everyone says when they get to see it, is that it is "bigger on the inside"... and so is this bag.  No, really.  You'd be surprised how much you can fit into one of my crocheted bags!

I made one for Steve last year to carry his 'ready at hand' stuff while we were on vacation.  We walked out of the hotel lobby after checking in and someone asked to buy it from him.  I was very impressed with myself!  And, ever since, I've had lots and lots and lots of requests for it.

The tricky part is that I really am a crocheter with a short attention span.  I rarely, and I mean rarely ever repeat a project.  So... here we are, it's the month before Comicon and I want to give Andrew my most requested item for his booth.  I made another tote.  While I was at it, I made two totes.  One for Andrew, and one for my Etsy shop.

If you ever wanted a TARDIS tote, now is the time, because this short attention span crocheter can't say I will ever be making them again.

But... you should watch for Time And Relative Dimension In Lace, coming soon.
