New hobby: iron-on beads #2
About 2 months ago I posted an article about iron-on beads. A new creative hobby of mine. I rediscovered iron-on beads thanks to Pinterest. And now I like it so much that today I have a new article with creations I have made so far :-).
Without iron-on beads, no crafting
In my previous post I told them that I had bought beads at Action and from HAMA. Despite the price, the HAMA ones are so much nicer than the Action ones that I bought some extra beads. First, a large jar with 13,000 iron-on beads for € 11.99 and also some loose bags for € 1.99. I also bought a box with 3 large square base plates and some beads.
Because the beads were all mixed up, I first sorted them. That is much nicer when making figures. Sorting 13,000 beads took a while. But the result is impressive ;-). I wasn't quite done with the photo yet. As you can see, the pot is not completely evenly distributed with colors. Luckily I like pink :-).
Getting started with the iron-on beads
And then I was ready and the crafting could begin. First I looked for nice patterns on Pinterest to copy. The choice is so great that I actually found it quite difficult to choose a few patterns ;-).
Kind of horses
Of course I had to make something with horses. I thought these unicorn and horse patterns were so cute.

I really like Minions. I have seen the films several times. We have had plastic Mac Minions on our toilet for a while now (sorry for the details ;-)). I wanted to supplement this with Minions made of iron-on beads.
You don't always have to put down or hang iron-on bead creations. You can also stick them on. Because I was ready for a new to-do book, I decorated it with a rose.

I came across this on someone's plate. Not a well-known figure, but very cute.

Still one of my favorites. It took a while to make and the black and orange beads were almost gone, it was worth it :-). I really like this pattern!
Source pattern: Tiger
Winnie the Pooh
Finally, Winnie the Pooh. How long it took to sort out all the beads, how quickly the yellow beads were used up again after making Winnie the Pooh. I also really enjoyed making this pattern. But Tiger remains my favorite.

Tips and tricks, or anything else you want to share
And are you now completely enthusiastic just like me? I'm really just a beginner, so if you have any tips, I'd love to hear them. Also nice other patterns if you know this, please let me know :-).
