Whovian Wednesdays: DIY TARDIS Bag

Since I've been writing about Doctor Who a lot lately, I thought I should make it a weekly column for all things Whovian. It's also a way to limit how much I talk about it here, so you dear readers don't sick of me writing about it. :P
For my first Whovian Wednesday post I want to show off a project I've been working on for the past week, my TARDIS totebag. I'm extremely happy with the way the bag turned out because on my first attempt I didn't do the proper measurements for the front piece and it looked like crap. So for my second attempt, I spent more time mapping out how I was going to recreate the front of the bag and it came out much better. There are still some things I want to improve for the next time I make one, but with doing any first time project, there's always crafting lessons to be learned. I plan on making another bag to either put in my shop or as a giveaway. Haven't decided yet.
