Small Tardis Sample

*Samples are not my own and I take no credit for them.

 

I do needlework.  I cross stitch, embroider, do needlework/canvaswork, have done some blackwork (although sometimes I cheat and just do it backstitching) and have done some hardanger.

I love science fiction and like all good little sci-fi fans, I love Doctor Who.  I want to stitch up a Tardis.  But I realize there are more options than just looking at pictures and drawing one up.

Redwork Sample

I could draw one on a tightly woven fabric and embroider it.  Either just outlining it like red or white work, but in blue or filling it in with satin stitches.

Blackwork Sample

I could put it on a grid and stitch it on something like Hardanger fabric and fill the spaces with blackwork fill patterns.

I could put it on canvas and use different needlework stitches to fill the spaces.

Needlepoint sample

I could make a full color, counted cross stitch pattern, which is usually my default.

Cross Stitch sample

I know which way would be fastest to stitch up.  But maybe I should try out something more creative.  I can’t seem to make up my mind.  I would like to do something elaborate but at the same time I don’t want to do something that ends up too time consuming.
