'Doctor Who' Felt Journal Cover- Part 2 of 2

Creating a pre-felt Dalek...

...who is not nearly as cuddly as this photograph might suggest!!



Looking through the plastic resist...

...to what will become the front side of my journal cover. 


Mid-way through felting...
 
...and the finished cover(!)

 
A hand-embroidered "Police Box" tops the TARDIS...



...and a Dalek guards the back of my journal.

"Exterminate!!" 
 
Adding a grosgrain ribbon bookmark...

 
...with a "D.W." medallion fashioned from snippets of white and black leather.

 
Even though the extraterrestrial race of mutants known as the Daleks...

...are utterly without compassion, and know only hate...

...I can't help having a bit of a soft spot in my heart for them, anyway. :)

I chose to create a 'New Paradigm' variant for my journal...

...because the casing of the 'Scientist Dalek' is ORANGE!! Grin.

To make a themed bookmark for holding my place...

...I stitched two squares of soft leather (one with sewn-on initials)...

...to a brightly-colored length of grosgrain ribbon.

Now no one could possibly go home with this journal by mistake!! :)

I admit I am not a Whovian, but that doesn't mean I don't know where you are coming from, totally that is. And I think your little notebook cover is ingenius! That imagination of yours almost scares me, but I love how you keep coming up with such wonderful ideas. :)

It's really great and I love the way you have finished the inside; must remember that. It's much neater! Love, Alexandra.

Heather Woollove said...

Alexandra--I just cut the felt into a nice, rounded shape after the felt is completely dry. It takes just a minute to do. :)

Ginx Craft said...

Have to admit I am still a bit afraid of Daleks, but I really like your felting. Even scarier though are the Cybermen!

Heather Woollove said...

Ginx Craft--Amen, sister!! Giggle.

Cathy said...

Awww, that's super cute! You make me want to try felting!

Heather Woollove said...

Cathy--Thanks so much! Try something small and easy first, and I'll bet you'll be hooked! :)
