Today is my birthday! (Hurrah!) And, in honor of turning the big two-nine, I’m sharing a gift with all of you! (For those of you who’ve seen me in person, my age may come as a shock.

Project: TARDIS Phone Charging Station
Do you ever sit back in your cube, listening to the hum of fluorescent lights and the low rumble of keyboards clacking away in the distance, wondering how you can take your geek cred to the next level? Well, I’m pretty sure that a handmade TARDIS phone charging station would do the trick!
Step 1: Print out the pattern PDF and cut out each piece. Then, use the following key to cut your felt and plastic canvas. (Each pattern piece is lettered.)

Happy Birthday Haley!! Adorable Tardis case; that's also actually a good idea for storing little crafting tools like scissors, blunt needles, maybe a few buttons… you know the deal. :-)
I hope you enjoy this day to the max, despite the clouds and rain!
Thanks, Brandyce! I agree–I'll probably end up storing crochet hooks in mine. :)
I'm in Michigan for a college reunion, so I'll be spending the day basking in the glory of Midwestern craft stores!
Crochet hooks, veryy cute. Gotta love the midwest for all its crafty goodness. Have fun!
Hope you're having a craftacular Birthday and soaking up all the craftiness at the Joanne Stores!! Tardis = Haley = Haley Pierson-Cox
Happy Birthday! We are birthday twins (except I was born February 16, 1960)! Hope you had a good one.
This thing is spectacular!! Genius!! I must make one. Also, you are awesome.
I just love this!! I had to share your creation on my blog, as I just recently made a felt sculpture of the TARDIS! Then I came upon your charger on craftgawker and couldn't get over it! :)
I backtracked to your blog via Pinterest (shocker, no?) and I am quite literally rubbing my hands together in glee over all your Tardis Crafts. I'm absolutely going to have to try out this phone-charger Tardis too! ThankyouThankyouThankyou
p.s. Happy belated birthday!
Thanks for the feature!
I go a little overboard on the TARDIS crafts sometimes, but I just can't seem to help myself.
Thanks for the birthday wishes!
