I am doing a portrait of marilyn monroe out of perler beads for my sister for x-mas and this is the just about finished version. I still have to piece it together properly and frame it but I have everything coming for the frame so it should be done pretty quick and I will post a finished product as soon as I am done.



finished product finally!!!

Thanks I'm glad you guys like it I used those little plastic beads (called 'perler beads') that you put on peg boards cand then melt together with and iron. now I just have to mount them so that everything is all pieced together.As for size it is pretty big I think it is roughly 19"x26'.

I have to admit I kinda cheated I went and downloaded the sample version of PCStitch and then cause you aren't allowed to save the patterns I just Printscreened it (there is a key that says 'PrtScn' in the top left hand corner of my keyboard and I just hit that) then I went into photoshop and opened a new file then I just pasted it in the new file. Then once I had it in photoshop I gridded it off so that I knew how many beads where to one pegboard my pegboards were 29 beads x 29 beads and I got 4 that linked together so that the image didn't look so pieced together. I hope that helps you guys if there is anything unclear just let me know and I will try to clarify it for you.
