Perler Creations
I've made lots of perler bead creations, but it's always the biggest ones that give me trouble. Like the last one I made started to curve off the boards on the top portion of the creation. And I had to spend like 45 minutes putting all the beads back in place after taking the thing off the peg boards since I couldn't push it back down into place. How do you iron out your big ones without worrying about it curving off the boards?

It usually curves if you over melt it. Trust me, I have the same problem because I like my projects flat. There really isn’t an easy way to fix it other than try to push it down with whatever hand you aren’t using to iron it. (and also use oven mitt so you don’t burn your hand). I know its hard but it’s one of those things that can’t be avoided unless you don’t iron it quite so much.

I hope this helped somehow. (:

Where can I go to find cool perler patterns?

Well, you can always google image things and use it that way. You can make your own by shrinking the desired picture to however many pegs you want it. You can also check out this website:

They’ve been getting super popular lately and there are a ton of patterns on there. 

I'm super new to perler beads so I've only finished two projects. I would like some advice about ironing them. One of my projects didn't melt enough and the other got way too melted. Could you suggest iron settings and iron time. Thanks!

Its really a trial and error thing. There’s a lot that plays into ironing because each iron reaches different temperatures and the sizes of the pieces also play into it. I don’t really know what to tell you other than if you don’t want it too melted, try counting to 30 seconds with your iron on high, not applying a ton of pressure. I like my beads really flat. I hope this helped in some way. If it didn’t, I’m sorry /:

Do you have any tips for ironing a project that is 15 large square pegboards?

Oh dang. I’d honestly do it peg board by peg board, or 4 at a time, enough so that you get a square that is still manageable. Iron it just enough so that when you pull it up, the beads don’t fly everywhere. Then piece it together. I suggest doing this because you’ll either burn your fingers doing it all together or screw something up and end up in tears. Been there done that.

I really want to make a big perler creation but I don't know how b cuz normally I would print off a pattern and copy it but i don't know what to do with big ones. Plz help

Could you be a bit more specific with what you’re trying to do? Are you trying to make a perler pattern out of a large image, or are you just intimidated by doing a large project?

First, you need to downsize the image so that its not huge and practically impossible. You can do this using photoshop, gimp, etc. Second, you can upload the image to this address:

http://www.mypixelpal.com/

I’ve used it on occasion and it’s one of the better ones I could find. You’re welcome to search for others. There’s a lot out there. 

Hope this helps!

For whoever sent this to my personal blog and may not see it on there.

Im trying to make the "heart pirates" jolly roger from one piece and I cant make the circle on a square board. Can you post a ~20x20 circle?

I recommend creating a 20x20px circle in paint/photoshop/gimp, and just copying how it renders them.

This took about two days of on an off work&#8230; a couple hours and I&#8217;m estimating when I say around 3,600 beads? Maybe? Anyways, we need more Conker love!

I actually timed this one, and it took a little over three hours to create. Not sure on the amount of beads but I think 2,500 give or take is a good place to start.

This was so long ago I don&#8217;t remember how long it took. Approximately 2,450 beads. I made it for my boyfriend, and will probably make another Godzilla sometime soon.

Hey guys!

I’ve made a craft page on facebook! It’s not just perler stuff and I do apologize for not doing more with perler things. I started crocheting amigurumi things and have fallen in love.  However, I’m planning on selling some of the things I’ve made, some of which you’ve seen on here, starting this summer on etsy. I just haven’t gotten around to creating that. 

The craft page on facebook is really new so there isn’t much on it. But I would love the support from you guys on there. So, go ahead and like it, and especially tell your friends. I’ll start posting perler bead things there this weekend. Hopefully.

Thank you all for your support with this page and I’m sorry for not doing more with it. I love you all and as always, stay crafty!

Oh and also, I would like to thank the designer of the logo on there. Thanks Nate. I love you <3
