I've been really busy the past few months working on a TV show, so first chance I got I had to craft something to let off some steam.
Unfortunately, I'm afflicted with a grossly short attention span, so even though the plan was to complete sewing a reconstructed dress I was working on before I got busy, Mum's birthday came along and I made her an Eiffel tower shrinky dink pendant. Shortly after I hopped right back on the Dink wagon. And this is the result. A mouthful of straight, zero-cavity teeth!





I saw this graphic in a cool book called 'The Whole Pop Catalog' which is essentially the Bible of kitsch. Then I tried to incorporate that into a sort of medallion design with a dangly tooth.
This is Dink No.6 to date since I bought the dink sheets, so I gotta admit I'm still only trying to get the hang of it, which I guess, is all part of the fun Smiley

Thanks for looking!

The whole difference between construction and creation is exactly this: that a thing constructed can only be loved after it is constructed; but a thing created is loved before it exists-Dickens

Wow! Thanks for the positive feedback! I'm thinking of making the same but black on transparent so it looks more like the dentist's chart/ x-ray film, and with a smaller dangly tooth to lend a wee bit more elegance.

I've never done a swap before, but I'd really like to give it a whirl. So if anyone's interested please let me know!
