I saw the Miyazaki film for the first time the other day and it's a wonderful lovely gorgeous film that everyone should watch. But apart from loving the movie, I wanted to crochet everything in it. But for starters, here's a quickie shrink plastic charm I made for Thing a Day. I use embossing powder to give a sealed, raised finish. It's used in card making mostly but it works a treat for making shrinky dinks look professional too! This looks a bit odd in the photo... weird reflections and the coloured pencil is a bit patchy looking. But in real life it's very cute :-) Tomorrow I will be digging out the grey yarn and seeing if I can make something that looks like a Totoro.
