I have wanted to do this for a very long time and I finally did it. I made a plastic canvas pattern of a TARDIS. I have seen some good patterns, but I’m very happy with this. It’s 10 mesh plastic canvas so you might find it easier to use embroidery floss instead of yarn.
I realize the top is missing a piece, but you could buy a battery-powered light set and stick 1 light through the middle of the roof with hot glue, then stick the rest of the lights around the Police Box signs all the way around as well as the windows on the doors. You will have to use the roof as a lid and not sew it together so you can turn the lights on and off and change the batteries. You could also line the inside with felt if you wanted to so you could put things inside and not have to see the stitches and the wires for the light set. If that is the case, you could also cover the battery pack for the light set with felt so that you could still change the batteries and turn it on/off. Simply line the battery pack and cut around the door and make the switch visible.
Anyway, I’m a huge nerd and love Doctor Who, so naturally I would want to have my very own TARDIS sitting on my desk and I wanted to share it so you could have one too. I hope you enjoy it, and if you share it, please give me credit and not take my name out.
UPDATE: I wasn’t paying attention when I made this pattern. There are windows on all of the walls, not just the front with the doors. Also, instead of using a lighter blue color for the squares, just do it in the dark blue, but add a black border or cut those pieces out and sew them to the inside giving it more dimension.
Edit: I never finished this project because it was too awkward. The yarn was too thick to do single stitches and it made the 10 grid plastic canvas twist. If you plan on making this, I would alter the pattern if I were you.
