This is my first challenge entry. I hope I posted in the right area.

I made a perler bead portrait of the 1940s Wonder Woman based on the cover of the archive edition.

I created the pattern using PCStitch Pro, cross stitch program software.

The largest grid I had was the yellow square I am working on in the picture so I had to create the portrait square by square starting with the center of her face.

After I put the pieces of Wonder Woman's portrait together, I put her in a shadow box lined with yellow scrapbook paper.

That is so cool!  Your Wonder Woman came out great!  I wouldn't have thought of doing it in squares like that; did you glue the squares together, or fuse them?

Thank you so much. I am so excited about how she turned out.

I fused them together using an iron.

Excellent job!  I love how you used the shadowbox so you could save the silhouette!

Thanks everyone! She is hanging proudly on my family photo wall. She's my all-time favorite version of Wonder Woman.

Originally, I wanted to find a coffee table to put her on and cover it with flexiglass. I just couldn't find the right size and I had concerns about how to stabilize the glass over the design.
