I'm from sweden though so we don't have that store over here.
And also I prefer buying the beads color by color 'cos it takes ages sorting them out =)

Ouch, tell me about it. I'm always buying those mini-beads and they don't come in separate colors at all (that I know of - anyone else knows?). I'm doing the same thing as you are, and I agree - it is more fun now than it was when I was a wee little girl in pre-school. My latest prlplatt-project is doing a Yoko Ono one... She's cool. Yeah!

It's hell sorting them, and it's always resulting in me having a baaaaadly sore back and totally messed up eyes. Crafts are bad for you! Cheesy

^ okay i understand now:) I have a few of those beads now.  I can buy them here in Canada, but actually when i was in denmark is when i bought the ones that i have.   i really have to try this. did u buy the large peg board or make it?

You can buy small peg boards and put them toghether (it has some sort of puzzle mecanism). I don't think it would be possible to make your own board and not go insane, Shocked but who knows...

Speaking of Denmark, this site is very useful:
http://www.hama.dk/
It has all the products needed, ideas and instructions.

I guess they take international orders, in case you don't find peg boards where you live... But then again, they ought to carry this stuff somewhere in Canada... Your local craft store maybe?

Good luck with your first fuse-bead project, you're gonna have a lot of fun! Wink

yes, i used the larger one 29x29 pegs. and then i made that one with 3x3 perler beads and glued them onto a cardboard. there are actually pegboards that you can hook on to eachother and do it as big as you want but i rather glue them together later. it must be really hard to iron a perler bead from 3x3 pegboards.

I do that sometimes to, becuase i have this large bucket of beads that i need to finish. but most of the times i buy beads from a local craft store that carry stuff from panduro. you could always order from them (www.panduro.se) and if you have their catalogue you can even see the colors and decide before which ones you want.

I am a huge Fafi, Kat + Miss Van fan.

I'm in the process of copying a Miss Van painting onto a cabinet at the moment.

But nothing compares to what you just posted.

It's so awesome.

I'm so jealous.

I've never played with perler beads, but I think my daughter would love them!  Here's my question...if we made the design on the pegboard but left out one bead where the hole in a necklace would normally go...would these be sturdy enough after ironed to stay together and work as a pendant on a little girl's necklace?

That would definetly work! Leaving out just one bead won't matter. Be careful so that you don't iron the peg though! I've done that a couple of times and ruined peg boards.

I'm always making earrings and necklace "charms", especially out of the mini beads, and I don't usually leave one bead out. After ironing (for the minis - on the lowest setting) I just poke with a needle where the beads "natural" hole is (now clogged with a very thin layer of plastic) and put the string through. Easy as cake. And it holds together very good whether you choose to leave one or more beads out.

I've never experienced any of my classy plastic bead creations break, not even at a high level of drunken dancing. Wink

Check this site out. They have a line called "Miss Hama" which includes jewelry making kits for little girly beaders. It might be more fun for you guys to make up own designs though...

Good luck and have fun...

my husband is working on a big portrait too.... he wasnt sure whether or not to iron them?  what kind of glue did u use?  My daughter wanted to make a little ornament but I wasnt sure how to iron hers??  all perlerbeads.com says is to follow manufacturers instructions yadayada ...??  and what is ironing paper?  can I use any ole ' paper?  our perlers were refill packs and didnt come w/any paper  Embarrassed .. i tried regular paper on a medium setting but not all the perlers melted and some melted tooo much and the holes got smaller!!! it was a mess! Helppp please! I figure you must know somethin' about this w/all your wonderful perler projects  Grin thanks! Smiley
