Not surprisingly, sportyness is featuring large in the creativity in our household at the moment and with football, athletics, that sporty event starting with O that we apparently aren’t allowed to mention and tennis happening, we’ve turned to the Hama Beads! Unfortunately I have managed to mislay my lovely Hama Bead Design disk so here are close up pictures and I’ll hope to do proper patterns soon. Some of these are inspired by the no longer available Hama Bead Inspiration Book 3. In most cases we’ve added our own twist though!I hope the photos are good enough; on this occasion I was taking them with a wiggly baby under one arm.
Here’s a pretty cool 3D model made by one of our daughters. It’s a long jumper mid flight! I hope you are impressed. Really simple (just add glue) so we’ve put a basic plan below for you to copy.
Another daughter has made a 3D swimming pool which took some doing. I’m going to get her to add a tutorial for this one to the blog for me.
While this one, done on the teenage hama bead pegboard, is ready to go over to a different side!
