Styxx Phoenix Free Pattern

Here is the Styxx symbol I made out of perler beads. Styxx is a character Sherrilyn Kenyon created. She is an amazing author, I love all of her work. Very adult (unless you read her young adult series) you have been warned lol.

Here is the pattern. You can use it for Crocheting too :)

Here it is on my wall with the Acheron Symbol I made. If you are a fan like me and want to make the Acheron symbol too Click here for the pattern.

 Let me know if you make anything with this pattern. I would enjoy seeing pics :)

Fairly Oddparents Cosmo and Wanda Perler Beads

This is NOT my pattern. I could not find the original creator(s). I did a search online and the Cosmo pattern came right up. After a lot of searching I found someone who did a Wanda but the picture was kind of hard to see. Again I couldn't find the original creator. If that was you, please give me a link so I can credit you for the pattern and thanks, it is awesome!

Here is a picture of them on our wall:

Here is a close up of Wanda so you can make one too :) If you do a search for "Cosmo Perler Bead Pattern" it will come right up. You can use it for Crocheting too! Just pretend the pegs are squares.

Doctor Who crack in the wall Free Pattern

I made this crack in the wall with glow in the dark perler beads.

Here is the pattern. You can use it for Crocheting too :)

Here is what I have on my wall. The Sonic Screwdrivers are NOT my pattern. You can find them by doing a google search. Have Fun!

Acheron Parthenopaeus Symbol Free Pattern

 Acheron Parthenopaeus Symbol 
Perler Beads

Free Pattern:

I have it blocked by 29x29 peg boards (aka. 6 inch square board) in case you were wondering what the big squares were for.

Please don't ask how many beads it took, I didn't count. 
I bought 2-1000 bead bags of Yellow, 2-1000 bead bags of Orange, and 1-1000 bead bag of silver. I just used the black I already had. I didn't run out.

I get my supplies from here. It is a great store. I needed 13 boards, but I already had them. Parchment paper works really well so you don't have to buy their "special paper". You might want to get some 2 large pieces of cardboard to help with flipping the project. Also look up "taping perler beads" That helps a lot with large projects. Good Luck! Have fun :D

 (For those of you who don't know, Acheron Parthenopaeus is a character from Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark-Hunter book series. I love those books so much. It is a very Adult book series, you have been warned)

Crafty friends: You can use this pattern for crochet, knitting, and cross stitch too. In fact if you search for "perler bead" projects you can find a lot of patterns. For every bead just make a stitch instead. If you aren't computer savvy, you can get graph paper and color in where the beads are. Just an idea. When my finger heals enough to make videos again I will be posting on how to switch colors and read a chart. Until then, here is a tutorial I made a while ago that might help.

 Let me know if you make anything with this pattern. I would really enjoy seeing your pics :)


These three are my own personal designs. If anyone is interested send me a message through my Etsy Store. Each necklace takes about 2 days to make. I will only be selling them to US customers because shipping is so expensive. They are $15 plus $5.00 shipping. I also take orders. If you would like your own picture made into a necklace, contact me, and we might be able to work something out :)

My Family:

These I made for fun. Venom for my Husband, Rainbow Dash for my daughter, and the other 3 are mine :) (Joss Whedon, Doctor Who, and The Fountain):

These are from my favorite book series by Sherrilyn Kenyon:
