1  Transformers Refrigerator Magnets in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by remisser on: December 24, 2007 07:22:51 PM

I like how my autobots magnet came out, but not so pleased with the decepticons.

How I went about making them:
First I drew pixel art in photoshop, then I made a grid outline which I then used as the template for my perler board. Smiley  (oh and I bought magnets from the local craft store.  just peel off the sticky backing and attach to one side.)

For your ease of reference, should you yourself want to make these... here are my grids:

Thanks for the positive comments. Smiley  It certainly is encouraging.  Here's the design template I followed, for anyone looking for the outline:

3  Companion Cube perler bead coaster in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by remisser on: December 09, 2007 11:30:50 PM

So, this is basically my first ever attempt at doing any sort of crafting.  I had always read craftster and then I saw how easy perler bead art was - especially for someone like me who likes to do pixel art on the computer.  I had to purchase a large grid online since none of the stores I went to had what I wanted for the size.  This was also an issue for the colors.  I really wish there was a store that had all I needed.  I want tubs of these beads, not 100 packs.

The project involved 529 beads in total, an hour designing the template (which a friend kindly redesigned to fit a slightly smaller format) and an hour and a half of putting it on the grid, then ironing.  As you can see in the above image it's 4 1/2 by 4 1/2 inches.

Here's a centered picture:

and with a mug on top for good measure:
