So I finished making my perler bow ties and I was wondering if there could be a category for accessories such as bracelets,bow ties,etc. Tell me what you think.
I think it's a great idea. I really wish that there were more categories for patterns. 5 just doesn't seem like enough.
sounds like a good idea on finding other patterns quicker, there are 5 main categories and 9sub categories, when looking for bows I type in bow in the search tab, Come to think of it, Yeah thats a brilliant idea, there are so many bow designs it could have its own. I dont know how difficult organizing this would be?
I was thinking the other day how cool it is that random patterns pop up at the bottom of the page but what if that even had it's own clickable button?

The 5 categories were made back when I started the site, and because there are so many patterns now it would be difficult to retroactively place all patterns into new categories, so I'm not sure how much use it would be :/ We have tags for patterns, which can be useful for finding patterns with specific themes. All patterns are also assigned a pattern type. We have a pattern type for "cuffs" (bracelets) and a pattern type for "ties," but the ties are specifically flat peyote ones, not perler ones.
The easiest way to find perler bows would be to search for "bow" and then change the drop down so you're only searching for perler patterns.
I'm not saying I won't ever add new categories, it might happen, but it's not my main priority at the moment.
A feature I previously had on a test version of the site, was the ability to make "lists" of patterns, a bit like on Pinterest where you have boards. If there was a board for 'Perler accessories," I suppose that would serve a similar purpose too.
I think that is a really good idea as well but i see where Crumpet is coming from. A pain in the butt muffin to organize where everything should go. but yea, there should definitely be more catagories c:
