Perler CardCaptor Sakura Wand by kurostarSunny Perler CardCaptor Sakura Wand by kurostarSunny
I keep meaning to upload my huge amount of Perler bead art but I never get around to it so here's at least one. ;^^
I've made a few of my own patterns for various things but this is the first one I'm really happy with. I searched around the internet for a CardCaptor wand pattern but I never found one so I made my own. Obviously it's not as long as Sakura's but I've made several life-size swords out of Perler beads and if you have as well you know that when they are that big they are floppy and not stiff like the smaller sized patterns. This one is just right for a small prop and it stays stiff too. 
Feel free to use the pattern to make your own. If you want to make it full-size you can just add more to the middle part of the handle.

Man, that was hard to write without sounding dirty. I kept having to retype sentences because of words like "length" and "stiff." I think I got it to sound a lot nicer but I know someone will still see a penis joke in there somewhere.

Hey this is amazing! I'm thinking of starting perler bead art myself. There seems to be a difference in the way you iron it... Could you explain this to me? Or is it better I send you a pm? :)

I like to fuse the beads completely instead of leaving them with holes. Most people seem to like it with the holes but I like the complete fuse because it is more sturdy and won't come apart and I like the way it looks better (kinda more like pixels). All I do is just iron longer and I try to push down a little harder. I have the iron on its hottest setting too. 
One thing I notice is when I'm ironing them on the pegboard, if I iron too long then the pegs start pushing through and making holes or dents that way so I try to just iron the design so it's attached enough together and then take it off the pegboard and iron it by itself (with the parchment paper over it like usual). 
Also, if you're like me and have cats that shed I try to look over the beads before I iron them to make sure there aren't any hairs of fuzz on them. I've ironed a lot of things and found fuzz in them later. D: haha 
Hope that helps!

Hi! 
This helped a lot thanks! 
I like that method of ironing slightly then removing it from the pegboard. That's like an easier version of the duct tape method I saw on youtube (MUCH easier) so I'll def do that.
I like the fully ironed look as well! My goal would be to get the pixel look too, since I'd be recreating things from my favorite games probably, mostly.

Thanks a lot!

That last paragraph made me laugh out loud for real.

In any case, I love this. Good job on the ironing, looks so pixelated and cute.

I'm curious though, isn't the "eye" of the staff pink?

I think it actually is.;^^  The image I was using for reference had it kind of brownish but I think the colors were a bit off or were in shadows. Most images I've looked up since this were either red or pink.

Sweet, you like the hard fuse! I feel like no one really likes that style. Personally, I love it. Great job on your work!

Thank you!
I feel like that too! I don't see a lot of people doing it but I like it way better completely fused.  It also seems more sturdy instead of breaking apart because of areas not being fused together well.
