I love that title, even though I was never a fan of Dirty Dancing.
After I did Miho, I began playing around with the program Perler and seeing what I could make with it. I tested all these pictures I had and finally found one that I really liked.
That is me as a baby. My family loves this picture as do I. I looked so cute, don't you think?
So I got the pattern the way I wanted it and it was going to take 9 pegboards to make.
According to the pattern, that was what the lips were supposed to look like. To me, I looked like a creepy clown baby. I couldn't leave it like that.
After about an hour of tweaking, this is what I came up with.
I didn't look as creepy. I was happy. So I finished the piece.
I am so happy with how it turned out.
Now ironing it was a scary process. A lot of the beads didn't want to iron and join the rest of the piece. Plus one whole side ironed very funny and I had to replace a good section of it. The whole thing took over an hour to do. I am very pleased with how it turned out and can't wait to frame it.
I hope you like it as much as I do.
