Tatted TARDIS Doily by wist-aria Tatted TARDIS Doily by wist-aria
Close-ups and a different angle: www.etsy.com/listing/165724493…

Nine TARDISes rest on the Earth with the colours of space-time shining through between them.

Tatting is a sturdy form of lacework that has been around since the Victorian era and is nearly a lost art. It is made by tying thousands of tiny knots using a shuttle. Unlike most kinds of lace, tatting will not unravel if the lace is cut.

This one-of-a-kind doily is roughly 17 inches in diameter. It is comprised of green, white, blue, and black thread, as well as two different variegated threads. 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. On top is a large iridescent bead for the TARDIS lamp.

Each section of the space-time background is unique and is adorned with random beads and picots (little loops in the thread). There are four different medium beads and five different small beads, including blue, green, yellow, white, clear, and silver. Each section also has at least one jump ring to add a bit of flare and texture.

The tatted TARDIS doily will look fantastic under a dish of bananas or a vase of roses in your own Whovian abode or that of your favourite geek. Alternatively, tatted lace is often framed and mounted on the wall to help preserve it against the elements.

It would be really cool if you did a bigger one with thirteen Tardises around Gallifrey.

I mean you know you just made doilies 100% cooler. Never imagined I'd type that though but it's true.
