Months ago I bought a giant jar of Hama-style beads originally from Ikea from a charity shop for £2.50. There are hundreds, if not thousands of them. "What to do" I mused. I made a couple of bracelets, used some for teeth in some felt zombies. Mainly though the jar has just been sitting and gathering dust.
Then the other day I decided to actually see if I could use them like Hama beads. I bought a Hama board from Amazon. I arranged the beads on the board, covered them in baking paper and then ironed them. This was my first attempt:
Then I had another go and made this one:
Tee hee hee! It worked very well! This one is a little too big for a brooch so I'm currently trying to think of something to do with it.
I also bought some actual Hama branded beads which are sparkly (I have no will power). So am trying to think of a good pattern for them.
