Ironing beads

So I was clearing out some stuff from a box in my parent’s loft (they decided to have a clear out!) and found a Flora tub full of a slight strange mix of Perla plastic beads. Along with a few plastic peg boards.

I’ve been at home most of the day chilling out, and spotted the box under my coffee table. The bead mix I have at my disposal is: glue in the dark, blue, yellow and red. Along with that I have a hexagon peg board, circle peg board and a star one. So not a huge range and rather creatively limiting.

A few minutes later I started hunting for inspiration on Pinterest…. There is a huge amount of Harry Potter related designs which I would love to try (none of which I have the equipment for yet… I admit to nothing).

So I went on a quick hunt for some inspiration on Pinterest and made myself some funky shapes.

I did a lot of these when I was a kid. But it is so much more fun when I was armed with Pinterest. Search Perla bead designs on Pinterest… it’s dangerous, but the hobby is also very relaxing. Luckily, I’d brought myself a travel Iron and mini the other week for my patchwork quilting (need to get those squares to lie flat!) and so it was very useful today!

I admit that I don’t actually own a normal iron. When I attempt to iron actual clothes I usually end up adding more creases then I start with at the beginning. My husband does the ironing in our house.

So this was pretty relaxing. Definitely plan on doing some more of this in the future!
