My daughters and I worked on some St Patrick Day ideas for Hama over the weekend, working on being, as usual all ready for next year As is usual now, we went straight to Pinterest for inspiration and came up with motifs we wanted a go at.
After a bit of playing on the Hama Bead design game we still own, we found ourselves back to an iPhone app I discovered last year. I was frustrated by my own, overly simple, pot of gold design below, so went on to find more interesting ones to play with.
Bead It HD allows you to import a picture or clip art into your phone, choose from a palette of Hama or Perler beads and then choose how detailed a scale your picture is built on. I tried a few different ones on a multi or single board scale and can’t wait to have a go at actually beading them. I reckon they’ll need some fine tuning, but are a great basic to get started with.
The more complex ones would suit a patient person with a large stack of Mini Beads I think.
We had a good bit of fun with various St Patrick Day crafts over on our blog.
