Amazing! I love the composition and color, and those brain hangers are the perfect touch!

That is SO perfect, I love all the shapes and textures!
I used to abhor glitter, but over the years it's really grown on me -dang, I guess I have craft herpes! Grin

Most adorable Nessie ever! Grin
16  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 86 ENTRIES / BBC Sherlock Shrinky-Magnet Hoop on: May 02, 2013 11:00:15 PM
Last fall I joined the much anticipated Holmes for the Holidays swap and crafted this item for my secret swapmate Bunnie Boo. As things sometimes go, it went AWOL in the mail so after collecting the materials I crafted the same thing again (on a smaller hoop) but it too went missing. I still suspect that there are a couple of customs agents with some Sherlock hoops in their homes. Wink So here is my "one that got away"...

When I saw that Bunnie Boo is such an accomplished embroidery hooper I was instantly inspired to do a Sherlock hoop. Alas, my embroidery skills are elementary at best, so I employed my other varied skills and set to work. This is a 12" embroidery hoop fitted with a metal canister lid, to which I mod-podged a print of the lovely 221b wallpaper (and poked little holes for an authentic smiley). The depth of the lid made a convenient place to store the unused shrink-plastic figures, and a magnetic surface to display the selected ones. I had made several sheets of figures with props and such but the first batch through the oven warped and smeared horribly, so unfortunately the only sheets that worked really well were small and yielded only the figures you see here -but still, I was really pleased with how the Prismacolor pencil colors came out and how well they held. (That batch of shrink plastic was a rare fluke from a thrift find -I've never seen any like it before or since!)

Anyway, on to the images!




And of course I had to do Hedgehog-John and Otter-Sherlock as they were in her pinterest board!


I couldn't resist a holiday touch!

Thank you very much for viewing. Happy crafting (and deducing)!

Well it's high time I added my long lost swap item for Bunnie Boo. While I'm still so sad that both of my packages went AWOL, I hope the images can provide a little enjoyment here at least.

After the first package went missing I was rather distraught, but when I found a smaller hoop with a fitting lid I did it all again -this time clearly labeling the package as containing "magnets and magnet board" rather than just art (though that didn't seem to help it either!). I still suspect that there are a couple of customs agents with some Sherlock hoops in their homes... Wink

Oooh, this is PERFECT! So many of the things I've crafted lately have been for swaps, and I still haven't got around to posting them in their own threads. The real challenge will be deciding which *one* project to submit! Grin

I still have my fingers double-double crossed that my second package will make it there! It sucks so much that there isn't tracking on international packages, but I understand the logistics of it -still wish I could figure out where the first one ended up though. I could post pictures of what I made, but I kind of don't want to spoil the surprise... as I said, still hoping it gets there! Embarrassed

It's been five weeks since I sent, but I have no experience mailing a package to this particular country so I don't know if that's normal or not for plain shipping. It's so frustrating though! I put a lot of thought and effort into my item, and I hate to think it got lost or broken. I'm not sure I could come up with something as fun that would be guaranteed to reach its destination safely, but I don't want my partner to go without...  Embarrassed Argh!
