I don't love pompoms this much
or this much
But I do love them this much
The thing I DON'T like about pom poms, is making them. Every time I have ever made pompoms it has been fairly disastrous. In fact those hat ones above, I think I made about 6 of each colour before having 2 I was happy with. Between the cutting and the tying and the cardboard circles - argh!
Anyway perhaps I am just behind the times, (or maybe I will blame New Zealand) I very recently realised there were such things as pom pom makers!
There were actually a few options at the chain crafty store (the LYS didn't stock them) but I went for the simplest looking option.
It comes with instructions, so below is just to show you, that yes indeed this IS easier than cardboard circles!
Now I just need to attach them to a new Jamie Hat and we will be in business! And it was SO easy, perhaps I will start a pom pom wreath for next Christmas after all...... ;)
