A great many of my friends are HUGE Dr. Who fans. I’d seen a random episode here and there, but the hubs and I finally decided to give it a try. We watched the first season of the 2005 series and started with the ninth doctor, whom we LOVE. We finished season one and enjoyed ourselves. But we had a hard time adjusting to the tenth doctor (I know, he’s beloved), so we’ve been slower to get into season two. However, a love for all things Dr. Who has nestled its way into my heart. :-)
I was really excited to work on this and didn’t want to wait to order purse findings, so I used what I found at Michael’s, which wasn’t the best, but it’s working out okay. And I ended up putting the zipper on the opposite side. But overall it was a fun project. I bought her Essential Wristlet pattern and found many of her tips very helpful.
I have size issues. I almost always imagine cyberworld “things” smaller or bigger than they are in real life, even when I have real-life measurements. This is a decent size wristlet – almost more like a purse than a wallet, which is cool. There is even a little pocket on the inside. And, as I expected, I’ve already received requests from friends. Next time I will try very hard to straighten my wonky stitching. :-)
