Handmade Lace TARDIS: Time and Relative Doilies in Space
December 3rd, 2013
Do only older people still use doilies? Or have younger people starting using them too? I have no idea. I just know that this TARDIS doily is something that both you and your grandparents can agree on.
They can put a bowl of hard candy on it. You can set the remote down on it. It’s all good, bringing several generations of Whovians together and making your home look geeky and old-timey… wimey.
This handmade tatted lace doily comes from Etsy artist DorothyTRose and will cost you a crazy $700(USD). It is about 17 inches in diameter with green, white, blue, and black thread. Each TARDIS has eight panels (five blue and three white, indicating the windows and the “Pull to Open” sign), and a black bar with white pearlescent beads for the “Police Box” section. A large iridescent bead on top represents the TARDIS’ light.
