DIY Bracelet - Using Shrinky Plastic

Hi everyone!!  I lay here in my bed writing this post all late because I took forever trying to get pics ready and doing laundry and watching some good ole football with theHubs, Go TEXANS 3-0!!! I'm super sleepy and tired but I will finish this post, lol!! Yes, I am the biggest procrastinator.... for one I've been on vacation with my honey this past week so this post should have been done and ready to go.  
I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend, it was the 1st day of Fall.  Here in Houston you couldn't tell we were still in the 90's, just a tad bit warm.  We were still able to enjoy the day though.

Okay, now that I have confessed here is what's going on in Casa Fifi and theHubs...
I am still working on some more of the thread-sketching but I wasn't finished with it, I can't decide what exactly I want to make it into yet.  It will probably end up being another pillow, who knows.  I really like this technique a lot.  It's so different and the more imperfect you sew the better it looks (totally my opinion).  
Well here is another project I finished.  It's something simple and sweet and very easy to do.  If you have an imagination you can pretty much create anything you want.  What am I talking about - Shrinky Dink Plastic!!  I totally love this stuff.  It is the coolest to use - with adult supervision if children are crafting with this.

I hope you like what I made!






 Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great week.

  18. Hi, I just learned that you can use recycled #6 clear plastic containers for Shrinky Dink material. I haven't tried it yet but I do think it will work. You can find #6 containers at salad bars or take out shops. Cheers!
