Sherlocked Purse by Timestitcher Sherlocked Purse by Timestitcher
*giggle*

I've been crazy busy for the last few days. Between client orders, kids, scouts and hosting a Doctor Who premiere party I've been a busy girl.

I did take a quick break to play with my Spoonflower fabric (designed by :iconmsmarchhare:) and created a test pattern for my Thirty-One Skirt Purse. I am happy with the result. Now, on to my TARDIS fabric. :D

In case people are interested:

(I've seen it also on sale through amazon.com)

Now available in my Etsy shop: [link]

Thank you. :) I have fun with my geeked out purse. I have put the covers in my Etsy shop too since I had so many people asking about them.

Yes, yes I did. :) Well, I didn't make the "purse" part, that was Thirty-One. I made the slipcover or "skirt" for the purse. I've also made covers out of Doctor Who and Firefly fabrics. I'm a happy geek. :D

:D Me too. I loved mine so much, that I ended up giving them as gifts for all my female relatives over the last year. They typically get fancy fashion fabric covers though since only my sister likes the fandom covers. I'm going to PM you with a bit more info.

Not this one. The Sherlock fabric is a slipcover for the style purse, so I can change it out as I like. I've made one with TARDIS fabric as well. If someone already owned the base purse I could easily make more of them.

I just added links for the purse and fabric to the description. I thought it was a great idea and bought one in black and another in brown back when my best friend was a rep and having a sale on them.

I added that one in there and yes i know it wasn't an actual quote. It was a tumblr meme picture and it was so funny it made me spit coffee so i added it

Well, Cumberbatch does say the lines, and it became part of a Sherlock meme, so close enough for me. BTW, I linked you in the description now for the fabric design.

I don't know too many that don't love Mal's pants. ;) Anyhoo.. I've always loved the witty dialogue and one-liners from the show. I will often put it on while sewing because I know the script well enough that I don't need to pay attention, unlike Sherlock! So many little details to pay attention to with Sherlock. BTW, I do believe I'll order a yard of your Flying design next time I order from Spoonflower. I just keep coming back to it.

OMFG! That is AMAZING I am HONORED that you used my fabric for something this magnificent and now I just want to run around showing it to everyone because as much as i like designing the fabrics I can't sew a stitch!

I linked it over at Spoonflower as well. :) I loved this fabric and couldn't wait to get my hands on it, such a clever design. I also really, really liked the "flying" design you made, but couldn't fit the cost into my current budget. :(

It's my favorite so far...not selling too well though, I think its all the Feels it evokes

That was it exactly. I could only pick one fabric and opted for humorous over the angst. I may get it on my next order though.

Let me know if you ever get one of these purses (skirt purse from Thirty-One). Now that I have this pattern worked out I think we could come to some sort of fabric/purse skirt arrangement. ;)

Just so you know, WikketKrikket has hired me to get this bag by any means necessary, and you know what that means; Ninja Monkey Dance off.

And is that some sneaky Cabin Pressure I spy in there...?

Timestitcher Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2012
Why, yes. Yes, I believe it is. Honestly, that gave me a moment of pause before I ordered the fabric since it wasn't a Sherlock quote, but decided I wanted the fabric too much to care. It can be found at www.spoonflower.com. The purse is from one of those at-home sale businesses, but the design is neat. You can get a basic purse in either black or brown and they sell what are essentially slipcovers that hook under that leather band. Instead of buying theirs, I just make my own in fan friendly fabric. :D

Taking a look on the website now :) I'm not sure I'd be able to get anything like that bag here in the UK though... I'm going to favourite it on spoonflower and take a look around for something suitable :D thanks! :)

Good point. I know I can get them through amazon.com, but shipping would make it very cost prohibitive. I'm sure you can find something similar on your side. Good luck and glad you liked it!
