Melty Bead Mash-Up

December 2012 036I had to try this melty bead (a.k.a. Perler/Hama bead) creation after I spotted it on Sols(tr)ikke, a Norwegian blog. (I’m sure I’m impressing you with that fact, but no, I don’t read Norwegian. A couple of paragraphs are helpfully in English.) This design comes from a Cath Kidson stitch book–apparently, needlepoint and cross-stitch patterns translate well into melty bead designs. Who knew?

If your household is like mine with melty beads aplenty, here are a couple other great bead designs:

Pixel Coasters by My Poppet. This design was inspired by a floral cross-stitch pattern on vintage linens. I gave it a try–not as intricate as the the Cath Kidson and super cute.

My Little World of Hama has a zillion melty bead designs but I favor one in particular of an apple. (The site is in Spanish, which I also don’t read.)

Happy New Year, folks!
