Introduction: Doctor Who Tardis Sneakers

Picture of Doctor Who Tardis Sneakers

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

Step 6: Seal Your Tardises

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

Did you use the same steps to get the "Don't Blink" on the back?

I'm pretty sure they just used a marker and wrote it on

I love the work that went into this and happen to have a spare pair of fake converse knocking around. I may make this for when I do my next fundraiser. Thanks for a great instructable.
