1. We start with the side panels. Make two panels 15×15 beads in size and two 15×17 beads in size. Make the base 17×17 beads in size. Also make a lid. It should be same size as the base but it should also have an elongated hole in the middle. Iron all the side panels to make the beads fuse together.

2. Now make two frames, 15×15 beads in size and only one bead wide. Iron the lid, bottom and frames. Glue the frames on the base and lid. Finally glue together all the sides and bottom. Put the on lid and coin bank is done!

Emoji bead coasters

Emoji bead coasters 1 Last week we had fantastic Gina from Willowday here on a crafty visit with her daughter. Crafting together with them is always a treat. We got a couple of intense and creative hours together and started a whole bunch of fun projects. We will share them all with you, and we begin with a cheerful Hama bead project.

You need a round pegboard, Hama beads and images of Emojis. You also need an iron and ironing paper for Hama beads or baking paper.

Building Emojis on pegboards can be tricky but it’s not difficult. When the Emoji is done melt the beads together with an iron. Make sure to put ironing paper for Hama beads or baking paper between your beads and the iron. Allow the beads to cool, and your first happy, or sad, coaster is done!

To keep your Emojin in one piece, make sure to melt the beads together properly.

Pyssla med mig!

Pyssla med mig PB nov 2014 It is now three months since our book Pyssla med mig (Come craft with me) arrived in stores in Sweden. We’ve had some amazing feedback on the book and we’re hoping for an English edition eventually.

The book is available in Swedish in bookstores, online and in our own store.

I found some pictures that didn’t make it into the book. Instead of collecting dust I’d like to share them with you!
