Details of swap:

Calling all Sherlock fans! While this is mainly a BBC Sherlock swap, I don't want to exclude any other fans, though, so if you haven't watched Sherlock that's fine too. The inspiration for this swap comes from "The Scandal in Belgravia" Christmas party scene:

"Oh come on, surely you've all seen the present on top of the bag? Perfectly wrapped with a bow, all the others are slap-dash at best. For someone special then. Shade of red echoes her lipstick, either an unconscious association or one that she's deliberately trying to encourage. Either way, Miss Hooper has loooove on her mind. The fact that she's serious about him is clear from the fact that she's giving him a gift at all, that would suggest hopes of a long-term relationship. And the fact that she's seeing him tonight is obvious from her makeup and what she's wearing. Obviously trying to compensate for the size of her mouth and breas...
[voice trails off as he opens the tag: "Dearest Sherlock Love Molly xxx"]"

Well I think everyone needs a Molly Hooper present for the holidays! This is going to be a three point swap, and the trick is it must be a large. You're going to make a lovely present for your Sherlock, and they won't know who its from until they open it! This is a sort of "Secret Santa" swap in that regard. So whip out your best craft and make your Sherlock something they will love! (And of course it must be Sherlock themed as well, that's what makes it a Sherlock swap!)

For a swap like this it is a good idea to have something your Molly can "stalk" like a pinterest, wist, or etsy favorites. If you don't have one of these, please make one!

I reserve the right to refuse anyone due to feedback, frequent late senders or flakers may be refused! I want this to be a flake free swap!

Oooh, this sounds like a fun swap! (Also, love the swap name, Alchemy513!) And the idea of making just one amazing thing as a present. I'm tempted... Will have to think on it a bit, though

I just sent in my questionnaire!

Quick question, is the "1 Large item" a strict rule like in some of the hoopla swaps, or can we make more?
Keeping in mind of course that we may not get "extras" in return.

I'm good either way.

I would prefer just one large... but if you want to send extras I wouldn't yell at you or anything. Just keep in mind that you will not be receiving from the person you sent to so you may not get as much in return!
