A few weeks ago I bought my first pom pom maker. I saw them being used on Kirstie Allsopp’s tv show before Christmas and was completely sold on the idea of making pom poms in all sizes, quickly and without the need to have a regular supply of cardboard circles!
My first attempts are adorning my phone case and I love them, so I am now trying to find uses for them every time I make anything!!
I love the thickness of the pom poms and how uniform they are. So having bought the small ones I had to invest further in a larger set. I am thinking about adding some to my current work-in-progress, a crochet blanket. Then I could add them to the end of some new scarves. I am also thinking about using the smaller ones to make little flowers, but that is going to take some thought and practice.
In the meantime I have been adding the smaller pom poms to my little Easter bunnies for tails.
I have now just taken delivery of a pom pom heart maker! I have no idea how this will work but I think it will be fun. It will make a change from circular ones for the Christmas tree!
I shall post pictures when I have made some.
