Sherlock Week: Damask Wallpaper Smiley Face Tote Bag!

 Sherlock Week: Damask Wallpaper Smiley Face Tote Bag!
This is the grand finale of Sherlock week on my blog!
This one is by far, my favorite.
 The damask wallpaper is just so cool.  It's easy to diy on a tote too!
 You will need a tote bag, fabric paint, stencil brush,
stencil material and Silhouette cameo (or cutting mat and x-acto knife)
 Here's the stencil you will need:
right click to save off, personal use only.
 If you have a cutting machine, import the picture and select the image to trace.
Cut it out on stencil material.
 Once it's cut, remove the negative space.
 Use the hook to remove the inside pieces.
 Place a piece of cardboard in the tote, so you don't get paint through to the other side.
Then place the stencil material on the tote.
 Use fabric paint and use a stencil brush to fill in the spaces.
 Finish and then peel off the stencil.
 Let it dry and then place the stencil in the next section.
Fill with paint and repeat!
Imagine how fun this would be to paint an entire wall!
 Let dry, repeat!
 I did all the edges too...but not the backside.
 Once it's done, let it dry.
 Then use some yellow fabric paint to free hand stencil a smiley face on the bag
just like the spray painted one in the show!
 Next, I cut off the handles and used black webbing to replace the straps.
 Sew them on and enjoy!
 Perfection!  Just a fun nod to the Sherlock series!
Enjoy the show tomorrow!

Sherlock Week: I am Sherlocked Shirt DIY!

 Sherlock Week: I am Sherlocked Shirt DIY!
Welcome back to Sherlock week, loads of geeky crafts!
This time you will need a shirt, freezer paper, paint...
and a Silhouette cameo or a cutting mat and x-acto knife!
This is inspired by the episode with The Woman.
A Scandal in Belgravia.
 Place a piece of cardboard between the layers of the shirt.
Here's the silhouette printable.
If you have a cameo, import this in and trace the area.
If you are cutting it, print it and place it under the freezer paper and cut it out.

  I used my Silhouette Cameo.
Set the blade to 1 and the settings to 'copy paper'.
 Peel off the negative space carefully, we need that part.
 Place on the shirt.
Iron it in place.
 Then remove the insides of the letters...
 Place on the shirt, iron in place.
 Iron the SHER in there too.
 Then use a stencil paint brush and fabric paint and fill in the
open letters.
I love the distressed look!
 Peel off the freezer paper and let dry completely.
The perfect shirt for a Sherlock fan!
Come back tomorrow for the last fantastic Sherlock DIY!
