    You're welcome from Vinz

    Thank you very much for your review. Now I'm going to get the more expensive one for my four-year-old daughter

    Nostalgic! I've done this often in the past. Good to know that Action beads are not that good after all, sometimes cheap is also expensive. And how nice those fruit coasters.

    • Els says:

      Indeed, sometimes cheap is expensive. Although I don't have that very often with the Action ;-).

  5. Myriam says:

    I also have a box of Hama beads. I think your coasters are really great! I was planning to crochet one of those fruit-themed coasters, but maybe iron-on beads would be better. You can easily wash it off and it is sturdier. I'm going to pin your image and see which colors I have available. 🙂

    I tagged you today 🙂

  7. Inge says:

    Yes, I used to do this too. Coincidentally, I recently saw those fruit coasters made of iron-on beads on Pinterest!

  8. Nathalie says:

    This really reminds me of the past... And those Fruit coasters you made are so much fun!
    Love Nathalie

    I still think it's a fun hobby (can you even call it a hobby?) to do! I often make jewelry from it afterwards, or I make an iron-on bead tray!

    Nice, I've done this a lot in the past. Very nice and cheerful those coasters!

  11. Looks very cozy and summery! Maybe a fun activity for work, so thanks for the idea.

  12. Jenn says:

    How nice! I did that a lot as a child.

  13. Klaartje says:

    Now I know what to do with my old iron-on beads! Very nice idea!

  14. Sammie says:

    Looks super nice, nice and summery 🙂 I have done it often in the past.

  15. Lieke says:

    Youth sentiment! I've done that a lot. If all goes well, I still have a lot of booklets here with examples, so if you want to make more, you know where to find me!

  16. Northflix says:

    Haha, I remember them! I still have all kinds of trinkets from my neighbors here!
    I would get a plant, a bear, or whatever on my birthday.
    I haven't done this myself in light years.

    I think that making figures from iron-on beads is like coloring for adults. It's soothing when it works, but probably frustrating if the ironing doesn't work properly. In any case, a fun pastime.

  18. Leonie says:

    Ah, then it's not my fault that I think the beads of the action are worthless 😛 I was indeed unable to iron them properly and noticed that they were not all the same height, no. So I just bought hama now. I haven't tried it yet, but I want to get started with that soon

  19. Morgaine says:

    I hated it, hahahaha My child also did it, but I passed it off to grandma, so she had the iron-on beads there and sometimes did it with my mother. 😉

    I'm more into the ministeck, okay, it's almost the same? Or not, I really like what you made, I never thought of having them made as coasters or using them like that.


I would really appreciate a response to this article :)
