Many of the Sherlock fandom crafts I see pay homage to his iconic damask wallpaper, or his signature coat and scarf. I like this project because it steps outside that, with a hat tip to the first episode, “A Study in Pink.”
Angela put together these cute earrings using “growing” sponge capsules and candy sprinkles! Because who doesn’t need more sprinkles in their life??
I also like that she made them based on a challenge issued by her daughter – crafty mom superpowers to the rescue!
Knickertwist over at Craftster posted two awesome BBC version Sherlock crafts that demand to be shared.
First up, her 221B Baker Street Altoid Tin.
You really need to go to her original post, linked above, to see the amazing job Knickertwist did on creating the tiny interior of 221B Baker Street! Let’s just say that it inlcudes furnishings SMALLER than a penny, all of them handmade! But she wasn’t done just yet.
She started getting requests to BUY her tiny little handmade apartment. And she just couldn’t part with it. So, she created a tutorial on how to create your very own (even smaller) 221B Baker Street from a matchbox!
And if you need more of a Knickertwist fix, check out her Pixie Hill blog.
The beanie had it coming…
Are you a fan of the BBC’s Sherlock? Tired of waiting for series 3 to finally come out? Then do I have a project for you!
“Bored! Bored! I don’t know what’s gotten into the criminal classes. Good job I’m not one of them.”
“So you take it out on the wall?”
“Ah, the wall had it coming.”
Sami Brooker of Knitty.com created a wonderful knit pattern of the wallpaper design found in Sherlock Holmes’ flat at 221B Baker Street, complete with yellow smiley face. She used a circular size US 8 needle to knit the ribbed, bottom-up beanie, perfect for any Sherlock fan, or an unsuspecting friend. Her pattern can also be found on Ravelry.com.
I cannot wait for series 3 of Sherlock to start! Benedict Cumberbacht is simply amazing. As usual, click on the picture to visit the treasury!
These Sherlock morse code bracelets are fantastic!! I love them! Final Problem on Tumblr made them, and gives instructions! There’s also a link to a morse code translator to make other sayings! I can’t wait to try this out!! This quote is from the episode ‘The Hounds of Baskerville’ (S2E2) and is one of my favourite moments between Sherlock and John!
I don’t know about you, but I’m in love with the new Sherlock. I found this gem over in the Flickr pool by Ursula and Olive.
I love the quotes and even the way they captured Sherlock’s nose. It’s fantastic!
