Select an image to convert into a Perler Bead Pattern:

This page converts uploaded images into patterns that can be used to make projects with fusible beads. Originally designed for Perler Beads, it now supports beads created by Perler, Artkal, Hama, and Nabbi.
The resulting patterns are designed to be used with the following pegboards:


Is this a photo? Yes No Photos are re-sized to a reasonable size for a beading project. Non-photos (pixel art, video games sprites, etc) are not scaled, and designed exactly as uploaded.

Max Pattern Width
(in panels):
More panels will give more detail, but will result in a larger project that will take more time. Mini bead pegboards have close to 3 times the number of beads. I don't recommend going above 2-3 panels for mini beads.

Bead Size: Standard beads (most used) use:
29x29 Perler Bead Pegboard
Mini beads are half the size, and use:
Mini 50x50 Clear Pegboard

Bead Colors: Adjust Bead Palette This site defaults to currently manufactured Perler Bead colors. Use this option to select other brands, or choose specific colors to be included in the design.
