I’m always skeptical of kids’ movies when they come out. Sometimes they’re great (and have a bit of adult humor in them) and other times they . . . miss the mark.

I’m not going to call any of the stinkers out, but two of my favorites are Up! and Wall-E. And who doesn’t love Minions?

Another movie that’s super cute, and my nieces are big fans of, is Lilo & Stitch. And I’ll admit, I was drawn in by the idea of a little alien-like creature (made by an evil genius) for a pet.

A pet with super strength, agility, and the ability to adapt to any environment . . . and indestructible too? That’s a cool pet. And one that might come in hand if I get myself into trouble.

And let’s not forget about the moral of the story – Stitch loves family. It’s a sweet message.

“Ohana means family. Family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten.”


If you love Stitch, then you’re going to love these Stitch perler beads! There are a bunch of patterns including some other characters from Lilo & Stitch.

AND if you have any requests for additional characters you’d love to see patterns for, I’d love to hear! We’re always making new ones.

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 Stitch perler 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 (using a rainbow as an example).

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.

Ironing paper laid over the beads

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.

Ironing the beads with a mini iron

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.

Peeling back the paper to check if the beads are melted

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 perler patterns, here they are.

Stitch Perler Bead Patterns

  • A few of these patterns are larger than a 29 x 29 pegboard, so you’ll either need a extra large pegboard (49 x 69 tall) or to put multiple square peg boards together to form a larger “canvas.”
  • In addition to square pegboards, you’ll see hexagon pegboards below. These are fun to have in your arsenal if you plan to do a lot of perler-ing.
  • There are several blues available from the different bead manufacturers. I’m showing you patterns in a variety of blue shades and you can choose your favorite for Experiment 626! Remember – there are no rules in crafting.
  • I typically start with easier, smaller patterns in my list and then move on to the more advanced ones.
