Sometimes a Jammie Dodger is just a cookie… but sometimes its a TARDIS self destruct button. Usually though, its just a cookie and a ploy to make Daleks believe its a self destruct button. Yep. Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey stuff. Shout out to all of my Doctor Who, Torchwood, Adventures of Sarah Jane, and Class fans. This Jammie Dodgers recipe is for you!
Okay, so flash back a few years. I had just met my dear friend Natalie (who makes awesome jewelry! Check it out) and she was having her 30th birthday party. I had NO CLUE what I was walking into but I ended up finding my tribe… or one of them. You see, Natalie and all of her friends were Doctor Who fans and well, so did I and that was the start to a beautiful geeky friendship. Isn’t it kind of amazing how you find your people when you’re least expecting to?
If you’re unfamiliar with Doctor Who… well that could take a while to explain so I’m just going to direct you to Amazon Prime where you can stream it all to your hearts content. Start with BLINK then go back. Trust me on this one.
Is it fall yet? Because I am ready. In the coming weeks I’ll be pulling out my yarn stash and start blogging about scarves and hats and other warm things and I could not be more excited. I’m also starting to pull out all of my geeky fall items (most of which are Doctor Who and/or Harry Potter themed). This DIY Embroidered Doctor Who Blanket is a product of inner Whovian coming out and I must say, it gives me the warm fuzzies…. inside and out!
Also can we talk about the ridiculous amount of Jammie Dodgers I ate while making this? If you’re not a whovian you probably won’t understand, but these cookies are a self destruct button for the TARDIS… well, not really. But they’re great for fooling Daleks and buying more time and just happen to be a delicious cookie! I’m so glad that I can get these at my local Cost Plus World Market because they also make really great gifts and party favors to my geeky friends.
This Doctor Who Blanket is a bit longer than my other projects (a couple of hours max), but it’s really impressive. All of your friends will be jealous that you made your own blanket(-ish). These also make really great and impactful gifts.
Time: 6+ hours (depending on length of quote)

What was your first experience with Doctor Who? Was it the classics or the new? Was it with a parent or best friend? I’m sure we all have stories of when we first saw one of our most beloved TV shows. If it wasn’t Doctor Who, what was it?
I very distinctly remember seeing it for the first time on the Sci Fi Channel (before they rebranded to SyFy) with my dad flicking through channels. He had been watching the very first episode and when I asked him what it was, he just said it was some cheesy scifi show and switched the channel. I didn’t re-discover the show until I was living in England some 3 years later. I didn’t realize how much I had been missing. Donna was the companion and I found out that we were on the 2nd Doctor of the new series and I felt like I had come late to the party. Once I went down the rabbit hole, there was no going back. I found that there was an entirely different set of Doctors before this and I had so much to catch up on!
The thing is though, being late to the party can sometimes be a good thing. There’s like this whole treasure trove of things to discover. It’s like falling in love with The Beatles ‘Let it Be’ and realizing that there is an ENTIRE back catalogue of musical era’s to discover. Pretty epic right?
Okay, so back to Dr. Who. What kind of crafter would I be if I didn’t give you a list of Doctor Who Crafts? Here are 19 Doctor Who Crafts for you and your companions to make.
