I know that I'm a little late hopping on the perler bead train. However, the prospect of creating 8-bit works of art was too alluring. So I bought myself a big tub of 20,000 something beads and have been having so much fun with them. The first thing I made was a star to top our Christmas tree.
Health potion? Yes, I'm a dork.
I sorted out some of my beads on my Lady Lovely Locks tv tray while watching Daria. It was like being stuck in some crazy time vortex. I appreciate Daria's cynicism so much more as an adult.
My husband was thrilled about the little Link I made him. I'm pretty sure I'm going to be making every Final Fantasy and Zelda character in perler beads.
I was hoping to make some jewelry (necklaces, brooches, and earrings) from perler beads, but I'm afraid the designs will be too big. I'll have to do some more experimenting. Have you all worked with perler beads? If so, do you have any advice?
