I know Halloween is done and over with. But I am thinking, if I keep the “scary” up for a few more days, I can justify continuing eating the kids’ Halloween candy… So today I am sharing the pattern for the Star Wars character that gives me the most creeps… Bib Fortuna.
I don’t know if it is the slimy lek, or the yellow eyes. He doesn’t really even do anything that bad in the movies… he just looks truly terrifying. It makes me shudder just thinking about it. Now, where did my kids leave that candy….
While I am busy eating things I shouldn’t. You can work on #27 in the Perler bead/cross-stitch/Lego/pixel/mosaic series.
(NOTE: We spent A LOT of time making these designs, and are absolutely thrilled to see that they are becoming so popular, but we want to remind you that we should get credit when they are used. So, if you post your work using our designs anywhere online, please put a “Pattern © Anette Nam Design” and link to “Maythefourthbewithyouparty.com” somewhere close by. THANK YOU! … and as always, you may not sell any products made with these patterns.)
Needed if you make Perler Bead Coasters:
- Perler Beads
- Tweezers (optional)
- Perler Clear Pegboards
- Removable Tape
- Printout of Pattern (download above image)
- Baking Parchment Paper (Perler Ironing Paper)
- Heavy Object with Flat Bottom
- Cork sheets with Adhesive Backs
- Scissors or X-acto Knife
- Bantha Milk (optional)
- Download and print out the pattern provided (mirror it, if you only plan on ironing on only 1 side).
- Cut out, then tape pattern to the back of the Perler Pegboard so the dots line up with the pegs.
- Add the Perler beads (tweezers are pretty handy if you don’t have a 6 yr old’s tiny fingers).
- Carefully move pegboard to ironing board, place parchment (or Perler ironing paper) on top.
- Iron until the beads start melting together (If you have never done this before, it might take some practice to get it “just right”).
- Let cool for a bit, remove from Perler Pegboard and remove paper.
- Optional: turn over, cover with parchment paper and iron on other side. (put something solid and heat-proof underneath to make ironing easier)
- If you only iron on 1 side, place it under something flat and heavy while it cools, to avoid curving.
- Cut cork about 1/4” smaller than the square, affix to the back.
- Don’t forget the Bantha Milk. Enjoy!
Usually people iron on both sides of the Perler bead design, but I prefer to only do the back. The designs look crisper and more “pixely”. With the cork on the back, I have not had any problems with the coasters falling apart, but feel free to iron yours on both sides.
Note, if you only plan on iron on only 1 side, you need to mirror the pattern.
We designed these for a set of coasters, but you can use the patterns for lots of other things.
Also, the coasters are pretty hard to clean, so try not to get anything too gunky in there.

If you think Bib is scary, you should read “Of the Day’s Annoyances: Bib Fortuna’s Tale from “Tales From Jabba’s Palace”. The ending will give you chills.
Have you ever thought of selling your perler pattern yourself?
No, I have not done much exploring of the Canon universe. As far as selling the patterns, I did consider it. But being an artist myself, I am a stickler for copyrights. I expect people not to sell their creations with my patterns, so it is only fair I should treat Lucas Film the same. Thus I decided to just keep them as “fan art”, that is, of course until the people at Disney or Perler discover me, and make me an offer 🙂
