name :: 8bit Flower Crown

introduced :: August 2013

notes:: So I had these perler beads...and flower crowns are all the rage, for reasons which I keep being asked about but fail to fully understand. It seemed like a logical progression at the time. Two childhood things, and one current one. It's been surprisingly popular online. Strictly speaking it's a headband, not a "crown", but it was the more sensible way to fit flat pieces on the head (just like I abuse "8"-bit when it suits me). I did wind up finishing this in a hotel room in Los Angeles, then breaking it on the way to the party I intended to wear it at...but the flower designs are my pattern. I just wish I'd known you could buy separate colors now before I spent so many hours sorting out a giant bucket...
