Project Fandom Shockblanket
A while ago, I got this crazy idea, which I thought was never going to work. But when I explained my plan to a couple of people, I was surprised by the enthusiasm some people responded with, so I’m turning this into an actual project.
Plan is as follows:
I think every member of the Cumbercollective would love to give Benedict a hug. Unfortunately, he can’t give every fan across the world a hug. So we’re sending our hugs to him in the form of a personal shockblanket made from hugs from his fans around the world.
Every fan can send in one piece of fabric that is 17x17 cm (6,7x6,7 inches). On this piece it should say: A Hug From (your name). NOTE: This should be written in the space of 15x15 cm (5.9x5.9 inches) on the piece!! The extra 1 cm around the edges is for sewing every piece together!! Whatever you write/draw outside the 15x15 cm will not show in the final blanket!!
The text can be written, sewn or embroidered on. Next to the text, you can write a message if you want or even draw something as long as it’s within the 15x15 cm.
See video for further instructions, do’s and don’ts
Mail your piece of fabric to this address:
6369 ZJ, SIMPELVELD
If you include your e-mail address, I will e-mail you when I have recieved your piece, so you’ll know that it arrived safely and will be included in the blanket.
Deadline for sending in will be 31st of December. I will keep the mailbox open for another month to recieve late arrivals but anything you send in after December 31st has a chance of not being included if it doesn’t arrive in time.
I’ve noticed with recieving stuff I ordered online that shipping from America to the Netherlands usually takes a month to arrive. Packages from the rest of the world usually arrive a lot quicker.
Any questions mail them to this adress:
Or put your question in my askbox.
Spread the word please, but keep it a secret from Benedict!!!
If you’re unable to make and send a piece because of money, mail me your name and I will make a piece for you. But note that this piece will only have the text A Hug From (your name) on it, nothing else. It would take too much effort to make every piece as you want so only use this as a last resort because it’ll be only your name on the piece!!
PLEASE send in your pieces this month!!! So far I’ve only recieved THREE pieces. The mailbox will be open in january to recieve late arrivals but please don’t wait till january to send your piece! If I’ve recieved too little pieces at the end of january, I’ll have to cancel the project!!
Following the road until I’ll find the end of the earth
You know what i want? I want season 3 to start with on the day that sherlock died a year or two later and lestrade is having a meeting with a group of people and saying “today is the day that a great detective, sherlock holmes, died”
And then everyone in the room gets a text that says “WRONG”
