My son desperately wants to be a Jawa for our upcoming May the Fourth Party.  He is about the right height, and has about the right temperament (he loves to instigate trouble ) so the fit is perfect.   He has been practicing for months, walking around saying… Hutini!  Fustini!  Wutini!  Rotini!

I’ve been trying to figure out the best way of attaching light bulbs to his head – without hurting his eyes with the bright lights.  So far, I am thinking black netting of the face, and glasses with lights attached on the frames.  But I’m not sure yet.  Any and all brilliant ideas would be welcome!

(and YES! for you guys with a childlike sense of humor, I do realize this pattern looks a little bit like a poop with eye-balls!  UTINI!!)

While I try to figure out a way to make my little guy a happy little Jawa, you guys get the #51 in the Perler bead/cross stitch/crochet/knitting/Lego/pixel/mosaic pattern 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 show your work using our designs anywhere (online as well), 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:

How To:

  • 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 heatproof 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!

Tips:

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.

Also, the coasters are pretty hard to clean, so try not to get anything too gunky in there.
