Yesterday I made a few pom poms with my new pom pom makers and I can’t believe how quick it is to make these little fluffy cuties with a proper ‘maker’! I feel like a cheat, but I am sure I will get over that. So. Darn. Quick. Hurrah. I am actually thinking that a pom pom rug might not take the rest of my life now!
Anyway, less rugs, more Spring.
I made some little Springtime critters and of course some carrots for them to eat.
To make the carrots, I made three poms in graduating sizes and them sewed them together. I made a very loose pom pom with green wool and cut it unevenly and sewed it on the bigger end to make the carrot leaves. I trimmed them a little to get a better carrot shape, but not much. Now we need a bunny to eat the carrots.
The bunny is two pom poms, one big, one small. They are sewn together loosely with a little white pom pom for the cottontail. I cut out ears from felt and sewed them on.
The hedgehog friends are single pom poms with a nose made from a felt cone and sewn on. I trimmed them into a more hedgehoggy shape and set them on their way.
I am sure these pom pom friends would love to help in an Easter egg hunt or take part in an Easter basket!
Do you like to make a pom pom? What do you make with them? Anyone know how to even make a rug……?
