8-bit Baby Groot Tutorial

It’s been a while since I’ve dabbled in 8-bit art. I did a video in the past about perler beads:

This time I made an 8-bit character using Hama beads. These are more flexible because I used the mini beads instead of the regular sized ones. These are really fun to make with your kids and friends. You can make so many things with them like magnets, wall art, decorations for your notebooks. The possibilities are endless ๐Ÿ™‚ Let me know if you make your own Hama bead art and feel free to post them on my Facebook page!

Here is where I got all my supplies:

  1. Hama beads
  2. Tweezer

This is the image I was working off of. I actually added a little more green and brown to groot to make him look a little more put together.

Make your own Angry Birds!

Who’s excited for the new Angry Birds movie coming out next month! *raises hand* I saw the trailer the other day and thought that the movie would probably be a hit, especially with kids. I can’t wait to see it ๐Ÿ™‚ And, as a tribute to that movie, I have decided to make all the Angry Birds birds. Not sure if I want to make all the pigs yet but I’m definitely making all the birds. I have Red, Blue and Yellow so far. I’m currently working on Stella. Below are the links to my video and the patterns. Let me know what you think guys ๐Ÿ™‚

Changing Colors with Corner to Corner Crochet (C2C)

Now you can make those colorful graphghans or those pixel ones like Mario and Luigi. This is pretty fun when you get into it. This type of crochet grows pretty quickly and pretty soon you’ll have a whole punch of things you have made! They are great for gifts too ๐Ÿ™‚ I would love to see what you guys have created so please feel free to share on my Facebook page: Fullmetalpiglet.

Here is the video tutorial:

Corner to Corner Crochet [C2C]

This is something I discovered after seeing interesting crochet pieces on Instagram. Check out this video tutorial I made so you can make your own. Feel free to post pictures of your creations on my Facebook page. I love to see what you guys come up with.

You can pretty much make any pattern you desire. The one I made was from repeatcrafterme.

I followed her pattern for the heart eyes emoji. I just thought that it was so adorable. She even made the other emojis and sewed them together to create her own unique graphghan. It’s pretty cool. I’ve also seen video game pixels on there and many other designs. This is a fast growing way to crochet. The only downside are the loose ends you’re going to have if you have a really complicated pattern. Let me know what you think if you’ve tried this. Do you like this better than traditional afghans?
