Valentine’s Day is a great time to do Hama Beads; the Small Heart Pegboard and Large Heart pegboard are perfect for it and easy to use whether you just want to fill a board with a colour or take advantage of an unusual configuration of pegs for more complex designs.
One of the first special kits we put on BeadMerrily was our Pink & Girly Kit, which features 12 designs on a laminated sheet, 5000 beads and both heart pegboards. It is still one our most popular kits but we’ve always offered the patterns freely too and we’ve now added them to our new Hama Bead PDF Free Download section as our Valentine Download.
This week, our 8 year old daughter, Amelie, designed us a board each and they were so good that I have recreated the patterns for you as free designs. Unusually, these look better with the ironed side upwards, as it blends and defines the letters better, so I’ve created these right side upwards. We think her “I love you Mummy” and “I love you Daddy” designs are great – we love you too Amelie 🙂
We’ve also added some other Heart Designs for Midi and Mini Hama Beads. These have been done on a square pegboard.
