The Style Gallery is a great new way for you to view, love, and share outfit photos. It’s meant to showcase all the expressive, creative, and inspirational personalities of our community!
‘Fashionable’ is probably the last word you’d use to describe shrinky dink creations…unless you’re talking about the items made by crafting queen Katie Nolan, a teacher the superbly cool San Francisco DIY school Workshop. In this video, Katie lets the cat out of the bag (quite literally, as you’ll see) on how to take this childhood craft from jejune junk to nifty necklace in a matter of minutes. Click the ‘play’ triangle above, then try to tell us you’re not tempted to shrink dink the days away!

When are the results of the Pinterest contest going to post? 🙂
Hi Cattie! Winners were posted here: http://modcloth.wpengine.com/2012/08/13/art-of-style-pinterest-contest/ 🙂
Do you all do ANY charity work…like homeless shelters, battered women, immigrant support charity, children charities, environmental charities….especially animal shelters or abused animal charities. It seems to always be DIY this or DIY that. Making fake cats is cute…but helping abused cats is even better. Just sayin…. Hope you all can look into that some day… =)
I’m happy you asked! We actually have a Charitable Giving Committee that coordinates non-profit partnerships and activities for employees, and we’ve covered several of them on the blog here: http://modcloth.wpengine.com/category/news-contests/behind-the-scenes/charitable-giving-committee/ – feel free to check out the posts!
Do you have any recommendations of other charities to work with? We’re always looking for new folks to partner with (especially ones that favor our beloved pets)!
Thank you for taking the time to respond . I read your article/link you sent. I built a house in Juarez, Mexico , one of the most dangerous cities in the world. It was for a family who lost their farmalnd ( northern mexico) to a corporation who pushed them out. These people had no choice, but to end up working for the corporations/factories at the border. Polluted conditiond, cartels….awful. There are thousands of these starnded ( no place to go) people with small children living in make shift shacks they have built using found objects.
I hope you all do more. Why do I ask? I feel that the youth of today who purchase your items and culture need to open themselves up MORE to these important humanitarian issues. WE live in an age of uncertainty ( economic debt crisis ETC.) and we need to come together now more than ever and help our world. I’m not saying it is all fire and brimstone, but the youth needs to partatke and not wait for the government to “HELP”.
I hope Mod Cloth can continue to inspire and create change in that realm.
I highly recommend looking at GOOD magazine….they are filled with fresh and up to date ideas: http://www.good.is/
What is that white powder she puts over the cat?
Thank you, that was AMAZING , I wanna try out 🙂
It’s embossing power, Monina. Hope this helps!
Omg! this is amazing, totally trying it.
Also, her cat has the same name as me 🙂
Best shrink plastic tutorial I’ve seen!
This is great and just what I need to finish up an in-progress project! Do you have any recommendations for the best brands of shrink plastic to use?
Yeah I was wondering the same thing as Sarah – any recommended brands/types for the shrink plastic? Thanks! Can’t wait to make some. 😀
Still hoping for a response on the recommended brands!
