Introduction: Doctor Who Tardis Sneakers

About: Journalism and English student with a penchant for crafting. You can probably find me locked in my room, making something.

As any Doctor Who fan knows, the Tenth doctor famously wore Converse sneakers. I added Tardises to mine to add to the Whovianism, and scrawled "Don't Blink" on the back, in celebration of one of my favourite episodes.

What you'll need:

  • A pair of sneakers
  • Leather scraps
  • Acrylic paint
  • Mod Podge

Step 1: Cut Tardis Shape

Cut two pieces of scrap leather into Tardis shapes. Look at an image for reference.

Step 2: Paint Base Colour

If your leather is a dark colour, start by painting it a light base colour.

Step 3: Paint Blue

Build up shades of blue until you are happy with the colour.

Step 4: Start Adding Details

Add details such as the lines of the blocks on the door and the black sign.

Step 5: Add Finer Details

Add windows and the text in white. I used a toothpick and pin to paint this on.

Step 6: Seal Your Tardises

Seal with a layer of mod podge.

Step 7: Attach Your Tardises

Use glue to stick the Tardises onto the shoes and then stitch to secure.

Step 8:
