My Favorite Fiction, on Fabric!

A while ago I got to give away fabric from a site that allows you to design your own fabric, but I'd been pretty lazy and hadn't bothered to create my own.  However, I've had too much Doctor Who on the brain lately, and have been doodling things like TARDIS and Dalek paisleys.  So of course, this led me to photographing them and photoediting them into a fabric design.  Isn't it nifty?
I've been having a lot of fun with it. Sure, it's a bit pricey, but I think that I'm going to save up and get myself some for Christmas. Even if it's just enough to make a pillow case for the JabberWalky or Mongoosine's bedroom.
I even made one just with Daleks.  
Maybe this one for Mongoosine and the TARDIS one for JabberWalky?

The paisley designs themselves were actually done in sharpie on shrink plastic, and will soon get holes punched in them and be shrunk down into necklaces.  I make a lot of necklaces based on my favorite fandoms.
Nifty Eye of Jupiter Mandala shrink plastic necklace inspired by Battlestar Galactica. 
Yes, I'm a Science Ficton kind of girl.  

How does your favorite fiction influence your craftier side? I'd love to know.
