Step 2

Download the PDF for the Playful Pup Project Pattern. You will use FOUR large square pegboards as shown. Cut out the individual quadrants of the chart and tape them together so that you can see the whole design at once. If you are using clear pegboards, slide the actual-size pattern underneath them. Now, place all the beads for the design.

Step 3

Ask an adult to fuse your designs. Place your pegboard on a flat, heat-safe surface. Set a household iron to the medium setting. Place ironing paper over the pegboard. In a circular motion, begin to iron the project. When ironed properly, the beads will still have open centers. Let the design cool.

Step 4

Remove the paper and bead design from the pegboard. Flip the design over to expose the non-fused side. Repeat the fusing. Let cool completely. Once the design is cool, peel off the ironing paper. Your pegboards and ironing paper are reusable.

Note: Beads need heat for about 10-20 seconds per side to fuse evenly. Lift the paper occasionally to see how the beads are fusing. Additional heating time may be required.
