    You'll need; Perler/hama beads (or perhaps you refer to them as nabbi pearls, that works too ;) ) Pegboard...a pair of tweezers if you want.

    First I made the outlining. Sometimes I start in a corner and work my way through it all, but this is easier for this craft.

    Then I made all of the clouds. Now you're finished with the white pearls, besides from the two white ones that goes on the eyes.

    Then I make the black outlining of the dino!

    Fill up the lines with the color of choise. I made a darker outlining on mine.

    Then you just fill it up with the sky-blue and the dino's color :)

    Bring out your iron and some ironing paper / baking sheet paper. Iron goes on medium - high, but do try the medium heat first so that you wont melt it totally at first try!

    Cover your dino!

  9. Small foto 0382 1246099708

    Iron away!

  10. Small foto 0383 1246099734

    Now it should be melted together. You can choose for yourself just about how melted you'd like it to be. LET IT REST FOR A COUPLE OF SECONDS!

    Then CAREFULLY pull it of the peg board and flip it so that the ironed side is facing downwards.

  12. Small foto 0385 1246099751

    Then cover the un-ironed side with paper...

  13. Small foto 0386 1246099761

    ...and iron that side as well! When you're finished, be QUICK and...

  14. Small foto 0387 1246099768

    ...put some weight on the perler creation! If you don't do this quickly your creation will bend and get tilted. Now, you don't want that, right? Let it rest for a couple of minutes.

    Here you can see them more clearly! Go to my website at for more pics and other works :D (you can see enlarged pictures there where it's easier to count the number of pearls for the project.)
