I was so happy when I finished this, I immediately sent a picture message to my husband and Dad, and for the first time ever showed a picture to one of my mummy-friends at the school gate - so I think you can tell I was just a little bit pleased with the result!
OK, so here are some sunny pics of dear son's new Sonic Screwdriver case...
I based it on the numerous zippy pouch tutorials that I have pinned, picking and choosing the best bits to make a 9"x12" finished case.
I stitched in the ditch (well almost) along some of the seams around the Tardis to attach some thin cotton batting, giving it all a bit more 'body'.
The back fabric is the same Kona Windsor as the Tardis, with some grey pinstripe quilting, backed again with batting.
Geek alert The 10th Doctor (David Tennant) is dear son's favourite and wears a pinstripe suit - when I quilted the man quilt, his first comment was 'oh it looks like the 10th Doctor's suit', so what else could I do!?
I only had a 7" zipper, so I extended the end tabs to match the size of case I wanted, and it all adds to the 'bigger on the inside' illusion! The lining is Kona Orange.
I added the tag on the side, because where else will he keep the key to the Tardis?
Fez's are cool, but will no longer be needed for storage!
The Birthday Boy will get this and too much more in the morning xxx
