Finished Friday: A New Obsession!

I feel like a kid again. I love being crafty!

I received a melty bead kit in a October/ Halloween swap on Ravelry ( among other wonderful things my partner sent me). I instantly wanted to make something with the kit. Once I read the directions I noticed I needed an iron… which I did not have at the time 😦 Β I thought I could melt the beads in my toaster oven.

This past Sunday I went to Ocean State Job Lot and bought a $10.00 iron. YAY! Β I tried to make a few things that night…. problem 1- peg board that came with the kit was too small. So I made a simple heart, I ironed it and a few of the beads didn’t melt. big FAIL. bummer.

My fiance wanted to see a friend of his who works at Walmart so after lunch we headed there. I needed a skein of yarn to finish his Mario blanket so I went over to the craft section . Grabbed my yarn and saw a bucket of melty beads at the end of the isle . AWESOME. over 4,000 beads for $4. I also grabbed a few of the smaller peg boards since they didn’t have any of the big boards. ( ordered some on Amazon along with other colors that didn’t come in the bucket o’ beads- dark blue, peach and gray).

Here are a bunch of finished projects… more to come.
