It started out innocently for me this weekend. I was helping my kids with Perler bead art they were making - a flower, a little gumball machine. Then when about to cleanup, I looked up some patterns quick...then I got ideas. I ended up making for my daughter a Hello Kitty face and my son a green Gameboy. That was Saturday. Sunday I got more adventurous. We made a larger Pokeball (big enough to be a coaster) and I made Hello Kitty full bodied with glasses. The templates are on my new Pinterest board I just made...

I also freehanded a small Pokeball (see pic below).


Anyone out there making Perler bead art? If so, share yours here. Or, if you have ideas - share them too!

Well, if you like Pokemon - here's Charmander I made for my son with a template I found online. Oh, and a freehand Gameboy I made.

Here's a new one. It's Kevin from the Minions movie. I included the template in the corner for comparison. I modified the template from a generic minion to make it fit more in line with the character of Kevin from the movie - added the brown eyes, the hair, made him a LOT taller (4 extra total rows), and added in the pocket on the pants. My 6 year old son loved it!

Made the red Angry Bird with my son the other day. I think it turned out pretty well.

Ended up using your template with my son last night and freehand a tiny Kirby to go with him:

I also made a freehand hourglass that my 4 year old daughter requested. Not really sure why.

Two new pieces. Did them both for my brother-in-law for his birthday. He requested Link, I made him the other beneath the spoiler as a surprise
