Project a Day: #8 Making Pom-Poms

Oh, what a lovely Sunday morning I had... My Grandparents arrived yesterday and are staying with my parent for the week and then we'll have them for the weekend coming! We went to greet them today. Ah, how lovely to see them again, it been about a year now. It's going to be a full and busy week, I can tell you that!

I visited my friend, Irma's little shop Matchbox again and came home with some awesome stuff! Like for instance, this Pom-Pom maker set. It's made in Britten and it's got instructions on how to make various pom-pom pets!

-as you can see in the photo above, there is a small and medium sized round pom-pom maker template. Then there is also an oval shaped template. What do you think of the packaging, neat, huh?-

So here's what you gotta do:
  1. Gather your gear! Choose your wool and the size template you would like to use.
  2. Holding a negative and a positive half together, start wrapping the yarn around the template until you feel you want to stop.
  3. When both pairs are fully wrapped, match up the positive and negative ends and click them in place.
  4. Placing the tip of the scissor in the small gap between the ends, start cutting the wrapped yarn right around...
  5. This is what it will look like when you're done cutting.
  6. Cut a piece of yarn about 20 cm(8") long, slip in between the templates as indicated, tie the yarn and pull as tight as you can. Make a knot.
  7. You can now remove the template pieces.
  8. Trim off any ends that might be sticking out and there you have your Pom-Pom!
All Done!
