Bag Update

I finally gave away the TARDIS bag (pattern for the TARDIS is from this site, it's the v2), and can show everyone else now!:

Based off the open wide zip pouch by noodlehead.  I quilted on the light and "Police Box", though it came out a little wonky and looks like Polia :-/

The back was a little boring, so I quilted in "wibbly wobbly...timey wimy...stuff..."--a favorite quote from the 10th Doctor.

The inside is just some cute star fabric I had out:

My Super Tote is coming along nicely!  Despite having three showings this week, I managed to get a fair amount of work done on it.  I decided to quilt the exterior pieces, and use up the last of the Salt Air fabric I have:

This is the outer pocket.

The back.

And did some fun doodle-quilting on the main exterior pieces with the variegated rainbow thread.  I love the rainbow thread on grey!

The pocket piece will cover most of this one.

I put a bunch of bugs in there, but the bee is probably my favorite:

Here's the back, in case the quilting is hard to see on the fronts (I used scraps of batting and pieced them together using a zigzag stitch):

The feathers are actually my least favorite part.  

I decided to add interfacing to the inside pieces and two zipper pockets, but once that is done I think this bag is going to come together so fast!  I'm hoping to have it finished by the end of the weekend.  And then, time to get back to quilting, yay!


  1. What a great week! Lots of awesome projects. I'm not a Who fan, but I know enough of them to get just how cool the tardis bag is. Nice work!

  2. i love the green feathers, so beautiful!

  3. They are both very interesting bags, and look like fun projects to be making while free motion quilting.

  4. Now I want to make some themed and heavily quilted bags. Thanks for the inspiration. Your work is lovely.

  5. Beautiful job on both! The rainbow thread really shines on the grey.

  6. renee, your quilting is out of control! i wish we were neighbors so you could teach me yours ways! i love it!

  7. Renee,

    You've been so busy! The tardis bag is hilarious. All your quilting is wonderful, even the feathers. If you aren't keen on the feathers, call them ferns instead. You might like them more.


  8. Oh my gosh -- that is so cute! I love the quilted "wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff" It's just too perfect. Is that the paper pieced Tardis?

    BTW, I got my prize from your 100th post giveaway. Thank you so much! That bag's perfect, too. :-)

  9. GAH. Tardis bag! LOVE IT! Especially the FMQ!

  10. Love the little TARDIS tote! Your other tote is beautiful too.
