So soft and huggable!
Apparently, he is a manx kitty, because the pattern does not call for a tail. Don't you love the overalls?
My cat (who lives at my parent's house) Coaly... after my daughter decorated him with Mardi gras beads. He is the same deep, smokey gray that I love!
Okay, this is going to make for a long, picture-filled blog, but as promised, I will show off the Perler projects I just completed! I have always passed by these beads at the hobby stores because I thought they were a "kiddie kraft". THEN... I happened to see the awesome projects that are being done with them to make replicas of Nintendo characters. They are perfect to achieve that pixelated look! Check out Lost Mittens etsy shop, and you will see what I mean! www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=35630 It was her creations, which I first saw on craftster.org, that made me say WHOA!
My first Mario, in the magical shoe
One I am working on now, but ran out of black, tan, etc. beads!
Word of Advice!: It you want to try doing these pics, I would highly suggest you go to ebay and buy the colors in bulk per color. I have found out the hard way that buying the mixed beads from Hobby Lobby, Walmart, etc. is a huge pain in the but because:
A) You have to sort through a big wad of multicolored beads to find what you want
B) There just aren't enough of one color to do much of a project!
Happy Crafting, everyone!
