The January 2017 Fandom in a Bag swap is BBC Sherlock.
Step 1: Step 1: Please list in the comments your favorite characters, episodes, moments, or any other preference you may have.
Step 2: After partners are assigned, check to see what your partner likes. You can follow-up with a message if you need to know more. Then scrounge up, buy, and/or create items that fit in a bag. Your bag must contain at least 7 different types of items although more is certainly encouraged (PLEASE try to make it look full). Different types of items means 5 ATCs, 3 pins, 2 postcards would be 10 items but only 3 different types. The swap requirement is for 7 different types in a bag.
Some ideas of themed items: stickers, ATCs, postcards, toys/action figures, comics, note cards, pins/buttons, magnets, jewelry, trading cards, legal music CDs, charms, ornaments, books, bookmarks, address labels, postcards, plushies/stuffies, promo stills/autograph cards, fainfic, zines, etc.
More specific ideas: knitted Sherlock scarf bookmark, case book, fake ID cards/ID cards stolen off Mycroft, Mrs. H's tips for dealing with eccentric tenants, CD of violin music, John's blog articles, your favorite quotes, plushie/stuffie hound.
Be sure to check your partner's profile so you don't send anything he or she might be allergic to.
Step 3: Put the items in a ziplock-type bag. Size: 1 gallon (measures about 10 inches by 11 inches or 28cm by 26.5 cm). You can decorate the bag or incorporate the bag into something (mount it or sew something around it). If you want to make or buy a bag instead of using a ziplock plastic one, that's fine as well, but it should be at least a gallon in size. All items you gather or create should fit into the bag (if a couple are too big, that's fine).
Assemble your bags during the month of January and please send by the deadline (January 31).
NO FLAKING ALLOWED! All flakers will be kidnapped by Moriarty and Sherlock will not come looking for you.
