This past week I was at home sick with the flu which meant I had to sit still for more than 5 minutes. This gave me a much needed chance to craft and so I decided to work with my favourite craft item Hama Beads to make a super cute Game Boy necklace.
I have loved Hama Beads (also known as Pearler Beads) ever since I was a little kid. I would spent hours making a design on a peg board and then have to carefully carry it to my mum to iron for me. 9 out of 10 times halfway down the hallway I would bump the board, beads flying everywhere and I would have to start all over again.
This rad template of a Game Boy I used is from Kandi Patterns. You just need to add a bead to the each end of the first row. Kandi Patterns over 60,000 hama bead patterns for you to use for free. So once you've given the Game Boy a try you can get stuck into some more rad designs. I've been making lots of food themed and neon coloured designs.
I hope you all enjoyed this fun little tutorial. I had so much fun making Game Boy necklaces in all sorts of colours to give to my friends.
