So instead of knitting at my weekly knit night, we decided to do Shrinky Dinks!  I had never done them before, so I drew out a few designs beforehand, and they are so much fun!  The best part is when they shrink - they curl up and get so tiny!  I used the opaque kind of plastic and colored them with Sharpies.  Here's what I made:

 - I put some in front of their original drawings to show the scale -









And my favorites I think are the cupcakes:

I really like the cupcakes and the mustache! the octopus is nice too, but you can kinda see the coloring lines---maybe it's because it's a sharpie? the bacon doesn't look like bacon to me, but that might just be me? overall a good job! hopefully you'll make even more!

I love them. I think it's kinda neat that you can see the colouring lines on the octopus. Super cute. I love the bacon one too. And the moustache and the cupcakes. All very cute.
