I started these so many months ago and completed them a few weeks ago, but life happened and I never got around to taking pics. But now I have!

This is Sherlock Holmes and John Watson from the BBC adaptation of Sherlock Holmes; "Sherlock". I am a tad obsessed with this show - as my previous plushies will attest.  Cheesy

Sherlock is 19.5 inches tall They're made using the pattern I made for my Psych plushies. I modified it to give them posable fingers and tweaked some other bits, but overall they're pretty similar.

I sometimes think I am too overly concerned with details.

I normally use faux fur for plushie hair, but for Sherlock's style it just wasn't working. I ended up buying a Kemper doll wig and modifying it to fit.



And now, Doctor John Watson who is 17.5" tall! The inset is Martin Freeman, who portrays Dr. Watson in Sherlock, and the outfit I copied. I wanted to give him his signature cable-knit sweater but I'm only just learning to knit and it was a little out of my reach so I went with the back up plan.

And because John didn't have an epic wardrobe like Sherlock, I gave him props!  Cheesy  The iPhone is from the unaired pilot episode, it's 2inches tall and hand sewn.. I had a little trouble with it and it didn't turn out quite as neat as I'd have liked, but I think it's cute.  Wink

And the jumper next to him.. I found at a craft store. It was for a build-a-bear thing, but I couldn't resist. What more could a doctor who has a penchant for jumpers want than a medical themed jumper? It's very snuggly looking. His hair turned out a lovely shade of bright yellow in the photos. I'm sure it's not that bright in real life. My camera doesn't always want to play nice with me.


...and that's it for me again. Thanks for looking!!  Cheesy

But being "overly concerned with details" is what makes these look so AMAZING! Great work. This, most definitely, rocks!

O.M.G.  I saw John's striped jumper and I was like it can't be!  But it is, and it looks amazing.  Now I want a set of my own.  BBC Sherlock is such an amazing show. Cheesy

For Sherlock & John I used a combination of Quick-fuse printable transfers and hand painting - I iron them on and then paint over them as I like the look of the painted eyes. For Merlin I painted the eyes directly on the material. Smiley

I've never seen the show, but these are so adorable!!!!  I love seeing other people's plushies!!  How did you do the eyes.  I have such a hard time with eyes.  I bought quick fuse but I'm not sure if it you can use marker on it or not.  Did you paint your eyes on??

Thanks!!

For these guys I designed the eyes in Photoshop and printed them on to the quickfuse, ironed them on and then painted over them with acrylic paint. These days, now that I'm a little more comfortable with a paintbrush, I just paint directly on to the fabric. I have seen people use Prismacolour pens to draw on the sheets and iron them on, but I'm not sure about other markers.
