was reading on several sites about making things with hand-made pom poms. I had forgotten how to make them, but it is very simple: just take some "c" shaped cardboard cutouts (2) of them, and holding the pieces together, wrap yarn aropund them several times, cut around the edges, tie yearm between the two "c" shaped cut outs and tie the yarn tightly and remove the cardboard for the pom poms.
The Martha Stewart website has some stuff about making various kids' things like lady bugs and snakes. The new edition on "Home crafts" shows how to make a lamb-like rug with pom poms. But if anyone has done anything else with them, I'd be most interested. I am also interested in felting, which looks pretty cool. The Martha S website shows how to take wool and make it into these balls, including how to make spots and stripes. Looks pretty neat.
Has anyone ever done any stuff with pom poms or with felting, and what have you done?
I was thinking of aligning pom poms to make a purse of various colors.
