Last week I was helping my friend Sam make curtains for her new apartment. Then her boyfriend had to go to work so we put that project on hold. We needed him to draw out some of the patterns we're going to put on the curtain.
We were looking through Pinterest trying to figure out something to do and maybe think of something to make for the Pinterest Movement. She's been wanting to make nerdy stuff with Perler beads for a while now so we went to Walmart and picked some up.
While we were at Walmart I remembered another project I saw on Pinterest that I've been wanting to do. I've been wanting to make a dress form from duct tape. So we threw some duct tape in the cart.
As we went through the food section to get some parchment paper to use with our Perler beads. We decided we should come up with something to eat. Sam pulled out her phone and we looked through her food pin board. We decided on baked potatoes and a fruit salad.
The dress form tutorial came from Natasha over at Little Pink Monster.

The perler beads weren't from anything in particular. We've seen people selling them at anime conventions and those were amazing. They're also practically everywhere on the internet. We made a snap decision to order a bunch of beads on amazon as well as some larger peg holders so we can make things that are larger than a 15x15 square. I've spent the last week sorting beads and making things.

We also made baked potatoes to share with our boyfriends and my other roommate. He ended up eating pizza though. The recipe for these came from Sea Salt With Food. I forgot to photograph them in a pretty way so you just get an image of them upside down in tinfoil boats. I was really scared they were going to make a huge mess with the butter and oil so I put them in tinfoil. They were AMAZING. Definitely using this method instead of the normal baked potato method.
It was a very successful day.
