Whatever could I do with pom poms????? I had no idea when I signed up for this hop, but I remembered wrapping yarn around pieces of cardboard when I was younger as I tried to make pom poms. After all....we did made our cheerleader pom poms ourselves waaaaay back then. Nowadays, Clover has an amazing pom pom maker tool. They make different sizes of pom poms too...easy...peasy.
Taking inspiration from the abundance of new bunnies in the yard this month, I started with one.....
Then I grabbed more yarn out of the basket and some fabrics to coordinate with it to create this.
Of course there are all kinds of pom poms one can make. If made a bit longer they are called tassles. I used these on an afghan that I made.
Do you know how it is when you have something on your mind and you can't "shake" the idea? Well....I was walking down the sidewalk and saw these pods. Thinking pom poms, can you guess what idea came to my mind?
Ta da!!!! TINY little pom poms!!! Beady eyes and all.
Be sure to visit the rest of the pom pom makers from today and the rest of the hop. I am sure we will see many fabulous ideas and you will soon be out shaking YOUR pom poms.
