Here is the finished creation, the Creep from Final Fantasy. He’s already for ironing, but, as he is a pegboard creation, there is the potential for the boards to warp, and make the areas where it crossed boards visible. Also, it’s a challenge to get an even and flat fuse.
Make sure that all the beads are stuck to the tape really good. Use the roll of tape to get the initial results, and then rub it down with your fingertips, or something firm like the bottom of a spoon. I like to use the opposite end of my loom hook, which I also use to poke the holes in the beads afterwards. The holes where they tape crosses over is the most difficult. You may want to use a thumbtack to pierce them first; in fact, you can use any sharp object to poke the holes, just make sure that the holes are of a good size, and won’t close back up.You can poke the holes while still on the pegboard, or take the creation off beforehand; I’ve found that taking it off before poking works better, but be sure to put it on something that will prevent your pokes from damaging a table.
You may ask, “Why should I go through all this trouble”?
