I do like making birthday presents #1

Back in May, its was my sister's 16th birthday
& I decided I would make her a birthday present. Due to my recent phase of much knitting (as you'll see soon with some of my 2nd year uni work!) I decided I would make her a knitted Tardis iPod/Phone case after seeing a few photos of similar things on tumblr.

I just knitted two basic squares with size 4.5mm needles in a navy wool,
and then embroidered the squares for the windows and the 'Police Box' at the top.
I also incorporated a small fold over piece at the top for the Tardis 'light', which has a popper sewn onto it to fasten the case at the top. This then allowed a gap for headphones to escape whilst in use :)













I think she's happy with it :) haha!
