Get over 10 patterns for Baby Yoda perler beads! There are a variety of Mandalorian pattern options for kids and adults of all crafting skill levels.
Have you seen The Mandalorian yet? Of course you have. There have been two seasons, and season three is coming out in March, and you can’t wait for it. Because you love Star Wars, just like I do.
But here’s the thing. I haven’t even seen one episode.
I know, I know. Right now you’re wondering if I’m even truly a Star Wars fan. And it’s a fair question. And I can tell you that I don’t have Disney+, but you’ll still tell me there’s no excuse. I totally agree!
So I promise to get on that.
Having said that, I do know that the premise of the show is a story that picks up about five years after Return of the Jedi. A lone Mandalorian bounty hunter named Din Djarin is hanging out in the galaxy after the Empire has fallen.
Hired by the last of the Imperial Forces, Din goes to get Baby Yoda (also known as The Child or Grogu). Instead of bringing the child back, they go on the run to protect the lil’ mini green guy.
My niece loves The Mandalorian, so she’s updated me on everything (without spoilers, of course). And because we love perler beads and recently tried a bunch of Star Wars perler bead patterns . . . we decided to try some Baby Yoda perler beads too!
Of course we incorporated some Mandalorian perler patterns as well. And I’m excited to share them with you today! There are several on my list, and they’re all free for you to try.
Perler beads are recommended for ages six and up, so this is a very fun craft to try with kids. They love perler beads (also known as hama beads, fuse beads, or melty beads). But don’t be shy – adults love them too!
Tips for Using Perler Beads
Before we get into the patterns, I want to review a few basics of using fuse beads to make sure you get the best results. If you don’t want the tips, scroll down to the bottom to get the Baby Yoda fuse bead patterns.
Remember that the overall goal is to melt the beads together on both sides while still leaving the holes open. Here’s how you get the best results.
Use Ironing or Parchment Paper
Place ironing paper or parchment paper over the beads on the pegboard. Be gentle so you don’t disturb the beads underneath.
Heat your iron to the medium setting (no steam). In a circular motion, begin to iron the project. Don’t press down too hard with the iron. When ironed properly, the beads will still have an open center. Check and make sure your edges are melted. Let the design cool on the pegboard.
Note: BE CAREFUL about lifting up the paper while you’re ironing! If you want to check, carefully peel back paper around the edge of your design and see if all the beads are melted.
If you lift the paper up quickly and there are a lot of unmelted beads, they will easily fall off or go flying and you may be forced to start over. Sometimes the edges need more time so when you check, just check the edges and peel paper back slowly.
Another Note: some beads melt faster than others (clear melts faster than white, for example). So some holes might be larger than others. It’s okay! That’s part of the look of the project.
Iron the Other Side
Remove the bead design from the pegboard. Flip it over to the non-melted side and repeat the fusing process.
Remove the Paper
Let cool completely and remove the paper again (which is reusable). Some people pull the paper off after they iron the first side, but I just wait until the end and peel off both pieces. It’s up to you!
Now if you’re ready for the Baby Yoda perler beads, here are the patterns.
Baby Yoda Hama Beads
