Long long time no post! (PERLER BEADS!)

I’m so sorry, guys I fell off the crafting wagon and recently climbed back up. I have started making perler bead sprites!

I decided to pick it up after being jealous of some of the cute (really cute) things I’ve seen people make of them- I’m going to make an effort to start blogging again, I’m sorry I disappeared.

The Vault Boy was the first thing ever that I made with Perlers, I made it for my boyfriend. The heart is for my best friend, because she likes kingdom hearts (she wanted to change the color scheme). I made the corgi also for my boyfriend, it took me like 4 hours. Then the latest things, the bunny is for my Supervisor at work who has fallen ill. And the kitty is mine, my subtle way of coming out of the broom closet.

I’ll try to post you guys a few things as I get them done, I actually have the itch to start making things again. So keep and eye out!

Biweekly Update; Maybe I got dis?

So far, today, I’ve managed to try the Russian Spiral. What you see is my first valiant attempt. It actually looks like a spiral. I think I managed to, for the most part, figure this pattern out. I’m aiming to get a bracelet done with this pattern…But I’m not entirely sure. But, I’m proud. It looks like a spiral. This pattern is weird looking as your work it. But I managed to get a spiral tubey thing. So, I’m feeling mildly accomplished.

Also, I made my paracord bracelet. I didn’t measure it, as per my normal misguided judgement. And, as expected it came out shorted than I needed. The Square knots didn’t make it to the other side. It came out about 2 inches short, knot-wise. In the picture it’s only about an inch or so, but that’s because I slid the knots down to cover space. I’ll…get it right next time I’ll get it right. Maybe.   I hope.

The point is that I kind of figured out the Spiral, and I got the paracord bracelet figure out [aside from the measurement aspect]. But I got the burning the ends down and tying knots. So, yay me! A super huge yay for the spiral. I kind of grasped it, so I’m feeling accomplished. I kind of want to make my ModPodge, but I really have no idea why I even want the stuff.

I didn’t get my yarn yesterday, because I’m trying to be conservative right now so I can pay off all my bills and junk.  I may end up making a cowl or something with that. Like, make a button hole and have a big chunky cowl/collar/neck brace. Or something. I’m not terribly sure.
