This kit will help you make a phone case of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. It was created in preparation for the Sherlocked USA convention in May 2018, but now is available to the general public!
Each kit is hand-prepared and packaged, from marking the plastic mesh to winding the yarn. The bobbins are made from cut-up boxes in an effort to reuse before recycling. It includes 6 pieces of 10 ct plastic mesh; 5 bobbins of acrylic yarn, colors: black, dark gray, gray, light gray, and white*; 1 steel yarn needle (#16); and a pattern.
FINISHED SIZE in inches: 6 x 3.75 x .75 . Please contact me for custom sizes.
NOT INCLUDED: - Scissors - Pliers - Specific Instructions on how to needlepoint. However, the pattern does include links to YouTube videos about needlepointing and assembling a needlepointed box.
* You can have the white yarn replaced with a different background color. If you want one that is not listed, send me a message. If you choose " NONE " I will email you to confirm that you already have a pile of yarn that you want to use and do not need a background color from me.
A PDF copy of the pattern will be emailed to you after purchase. The pattern's gauge is 2 st and 2 row = square, so you can adapt it to just about any single-unit assembly craft (such as melting beads or rug hooking). It includes blank charts so you can customize the sides of your case.
PROCESSING TIME: 1-3 days. Custom orders for larger quantities available, please message me for estimated completion time.
I try to recycle shipping packaging as well, so your package may look a little dirty...but please rest assured that it is most likely a reused box!
Items will not be shipped until full payment is received.
