Sorry for the sudden message spam! I've been busy this summer and just now getting around to sharing pics of my favorites projects.

I'm a HUGE Harry Potter fan so naturally I had to try my hand at making some Pygmy Puffs. These little guys look a bit like colorful Pomeranians, lol, but I still love them. Some have open mouths, some little tongues sticking out and some have itty bitty fangs. I love the ones with itty bitty fangs best Tongue






I even attached clips to a few Puffs so they can be worn on your shoulder. Hee! I wore this little guy to an HP convention and he got lots of attention.

Adorable! Have you been to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter? WHen you buy a Pygmy Puff at Zonkos they ring this huge bell and make a big scene about it being adopted. "Here ye! Here ye!..." Lots of fun. If i had all those puffs I would scatter them around the house, in the closets, under beds - everywhere- just so I could randomly run across them Cheesy

Thanks for the lovely compliments!

Gigantic puffy pompoms Cheesy The fluffier the better. I prefer 2.5" pompoms but they're not that easy to find so I mostly make do with 2" ones. If you look close you can see the blue puffs are a tad smaller than the pink, that's the difference between the two sizes.

Have you been to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter?
Yes! Loved it. The Pygmy Puffs there are actually why I made these - those puffs are HUGE and I didn't like the way they looked. So I decided to make my own version Smiley Thus these little guys.
If I left them scattered around my house, alas, my kids and dogs would rip them up. In the interests of their continued good health I keep them in my craft room in a bird cage. It's terribly cute.

You made me laugh with the Despicable Me reference Cheesy Thanks for the compliments. They are a bit cavity inducing but I just can't resist their little faces, lol.
