It's taken me two days to finish this and I'm really pleased with her - perler bead Betty Boop. (They're called Hama beads over here in the UK!)



I've been having trouble getting hama bead designs off the pegboards lately so I was a bit worried about trying something this big, but I finally figured out that my iron was on too low a heat setting! *headdesk*
Erm, what else?
She's 30 inches tall by 13 inches wide, and is stuck to the wall with pink blu-tack right above my bed. (Won't I get a nice shock if she falls down in the middle of the night?!)
I did follow a picture but it lost half the detail when I zoomed in, so I had to make up some parts as I went along. Her face, and jewellery, shoes, etc, are all my doing!  Grin

Thanks for looking!
Now I can't wait to do more big designs. I'm thinking Rainbow Brite might be next!

She's wonderful. I have never been brave enough to try something so large I am truly impressed!

Thanks you guys!

And FYI, Blu-tack is not strong enough to hold up something this big. *Picks up Betty Boop from where she has fallen* Roll Eyes

Thank you! Over here the biggest boards you can get (that I've managed to find, at least!) are little 29x29 bead squares that connect to each other. It took 15 of them all connected together!

this may be a stupid question, but she is a cross-stitch isn't she?
i was a little confused because of the phrase 'bead squares'
i do love it ... looks amazing ... and start to finish in 2 days ... very impressive
