I made a TARDIS purse for my Doctor Who obsessed niece! For the blue fabric I cut out two large rectangle pieces of fabric for the body of the purse, one medium sized square for the flap, then two long strips for the side and one short strip for the bottom. I then took a starry patterned piece and did the same and used fabric glue to attach it. The strap is about 24 inches long.
For the flap, I cut out 2 white squares for the windows, 6 very thin black strips for the window panes, and 1 black strip for the embroided "Police Box". I traced out "Police Box" and "Public Call" with a lead pencil on the black strip and used white embroidery thread to embroider it.
I then used a sewing machine to sew it all together!
