Doctor Who Is My [Their] Bag!

One of the greatest things about weekday holidays have to be the television marathons. In honor of all the students going back to school this week, and late last month, the Chiller channel ran a Buffy the Vampire Slayer marathon. While I would have LOVED to have sat down to watch this all day, I found myself occupied with another cult classic--Doctor Who.

Oooh! Aahh!

Not watching Doctor Who, mind you, but creating some Doctor Who themed goodies!

I received a request for a custom Doctor Who order of three tote bags and one Sassy Shopper. Talk about exciting! My customer checked out the amazing artists who make their prints available on and then let me know which fabrics would make the perfect bags for her daughters.

She requested the TARDIS bag with my favorite Doctor Who themed prints, T.A.R.D.I.S. by The Unicorn and the Wasp and All The Whos by Third Half Studios.

The second bag features All The Whos as the outer fabric with Hello Sweetie by Scrummy as the interior fabric.

The third bag features The Untempered Schism in black, also by Scrummy, with All the Whos as the interior.

In addition to the tote bags for her daughters, she requested the Sassy Shopper for herself. The bag features the Untempered Schism on the outside with Hello Sweetie on the inside. There are three interior pockets, one large one and one divided in half. The bag is finished with a magnetic closure. To help with sturdiness, I used some light interfacing and cotton batting.

The tote bags have been delivered and arrived just in time for the season premier of Doctor Who. The Sassy Shopper is heading out in the mail tomorrow. Loved making these bags!
