This was something I've been wanting to try for ages but.. I need another hobby like I need a hole in the head. But alas! Look what I've done!
I spent hours on Pinterest looking up ideas, naturally catering to my geeky loves, Pokemon and Star Wars. So many neat things to make! However.. your first round with new craft is the one where you'll make the most mistakes. So..
Mistake #1: Buying a tub of 11,000 assorted colors. Oh my stars.. why. I think I spent more time digging for the colors than I did actually putting it together.
Mistake #2: Did you know there are "Mini" Perler Beads? I didn't. I wanted to start out making keychains for my boyfriend and his friends (lightsabers) but was unaware that all the patters I found were made with the Minis. Had to play with it a bit but I think the lightsabers turned out pretty good seeing how didn't have a pattern to follow..
Mistake #3: I am a clutz. Plain and simple. I will trip over literally nothing and take everything with me on my way down. So now that I've painted that picture.. I'm sure you can imagine how well my first few trips from my desk to the ironing board went..
Overall, it's very relaxing and easy to lose yourself in the project. Added bonus.. I got my awesome boyfran hooked as well.. So where we used to spend hours playing minecraft, now we spend hours doing this!
