The Case of the Diamond Necklace – Clue # 4

A Fish Called Wanda (1988) Diamond Heist

Inklingo makes this clue so easy, it almost feels like a classic diamond heist—well planned, quickly executed, clever and fun.

COTDN Clue # 4 (5 pages, PDF to download)

In fact, this clue is just like A Fish Called Wanda but with a slightly simpler plot, fewer fish, and a G rating.


Print diamonds on fabric

Print the shapes on fabric, cut rows (single layer), and then stack the rows to cut several layers at a time.

  1. I’ve been wondering about the timing of the next clue, but I haven’t a clue how I’m going to tackle the previous one. Life–it gets in the way!
    And Cathi……….. such a show-off!

  2. This is going to be a wonderful clue to put together! My printer will be busy in just a few minutes – this is the perfect hand piecing to be doing while watching baseball games and the Masters!!
