To balance out the Death Eater tea towels I've made for the Snape meet-up at Ascendio, I decided to try my hand making Sherlock inspired tea towels. I had several sources of inspiration, some of which did not quite turn out as I imagined. However, the set I'm going with is inspired by Tumblr:
Unlike the Snapey towels, these I decided not dye with tea but left in their bleached white state. I am also thinking of doing #notyourhousekeeper and #notourdivision just for giggles. There are only so many towels one needs, but they might be fun to give away. I also have a table at the Craft Fair, where I'll be selling HP stuff, but I wonder if I could also sell Sherlock stuff. I just don't know if anyone would buy it at a HP con.
Lest you think crafting is all rainbows and unicorns, below are two of my unsuccessful attempts. The first was meant to resemble the Baker Street Tube sign, but the design required far more precision than I could achieve with fabric marker or fabric paint, and I don't know if I'll finish it. The second, I may try to salvage with black fabric paint as the marker didn't leave a rich enough color for the boxes. I should perhaps stick with text and stay away from designs with geometric shapes and precise lines.
