Tell Your Sad Kandi Stories Here

I'll start with mine, I have three stories about perler. kao cry

1. When I was starting to make perler, I was making a medium sized sword, large for me. I was using a lot of boards and was putting them on a TV stand right where my hamster cage was, the urine and water that went through the hamsters stuffing for the cage, leaked through and dripped all over the beads, causing the beads to smell terrible. Had to remove all the beads.

2. I was making my own Tinker Bell, it wasn't great but whatever, took the board into my moms room and turned around and banged into the door with the board and beads went EVERYWHERE. I fell to the ground crying.

3. One day I forgot which side I needed to melt and melted the side with the tape which was not good. One side is sticky.

Sad Story for me not really sad,

A bead project turned into a cleaning project,

I had everything organized and separated (Pony Beads) , then Kaboom! everything is on the floor scattered all over the place!

Lucky for me dividing and organizing beads is just as fun sometimes, but not from off the floor.

Getting Tangled by the Mess of string!

So when creating a Large peyote stitch Panel I tend to use one long string instead of having to divide it

into separate parts, Imagine fishing line running through the entire house just to finish a project and Having to tie the string when the first line of

beads are on the string, This is a regular thing for me, keeping the string separate can be a task but one small mess up, trip over the string or the cat

decides to play tug a war with the string, things can go south real quick. As a get ready to tie the string, a portion is bundled up and the knot is so difficult to

undo, I am forced to cut alot of string out in order to continue, I hate wasting string. good thing fishing line is cheap but it was alot of string.

Does anyone else share a similar story? How much worse can things get?

Dont worry i have many stories xD

1) I was making a life sized minecraft sword and i lost my parchment paper so i thought using wax paper was the same thing of parchment paper. I started ironing the project and the paper started melting with the beads, couldnt get the paper off the beads so i salvaged as much as i can of the beads and throw the rest away

2)I was working on a really big project that took up my whole board and i was using a tv dinner table sitting on my couch watching tv, i was home alone and my dogs were both sleeping and it was quiet, my dog barked it scared the crap out of me and i flipped my peg board when i was 90% done with the project.

3) I dropped my iron on my thigh when i was wearing shorts and i fried my skin so i had to go to the hospital and wear dressing on it for a while -.- i was so mad at my iron i didnt touch it

my mom made me give away my pony beads because I'm "too old to be using them" earlier this year.

the good news is, she gave them to a special needs kid that wanted them.

Now i use glass beads.

@starcat000: you are never too old to use pony beads, there is not an age limit.
