This is the pattern I started off with - Original Artist Gamer Grrlzhttp://farm5.static.flickr.com/4105/5060198417_c2894c1c61.jpg
I decided to use Perler and Hama fused plastic beads to create my pixel creation. Each bead counts as a pixel. You use hard plastic grids with small spikes on them in order to build your pattern and when complete, you use a sheet of parchment sheet and an iron to melt the beads together.http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4106/5060809838_e06aba68cf.jpg

I've decided that Mama will probably go up in the kitchen on the wall.
