    The cutest Pom Pom tutorial that will make this all so simple.
    BY: AMBER KEMP FROM DAMASK LOVE


      


    Hey everybody, Amber from Damask Love here and today I want to talk pom-poms. Pom-poms are my spirit animal. I’m mildly obsessed with them. Pom-pom making is such an awesome textile craft for those of us who aren't the crochet-knitting-tatting type. If you can wrap yarn, you can make pom poms. If you can use scissors, you can make pom-poms. If you can tie a knot, you can make pom poms. It’s easy and when you’re done, those pom poms can transform in the cutest little things - like fruit. I transformed my pom-poms into a trio of fruit to dress up the front of a canvas tote bag. Here’s how it’s done:  


    MATERIALS:


    Woolly Merino Yarn in Peach, Orange and Red Pom Pom Maker Craft Glue Canvas Tote Bag Green embroidery floss Embroidery Needle Transfer Pen Green Felt   

     



    INSTRUCTIONS:

    1. Wrap yarn around one side of the pom pom maker
    2. With one side wrapped, close the pom pom maker
    3. Cut the yarn
    4. Tie a piece of yarn tightly around the cut yarn
    5. Remove the half-pom-pom from the pom pom maker and trim with scissors. Repeat steps 1-5 with all the colors of yarn
    6. Arrange the pom poms on the tote bag and use a transfer pen to draw the stem shapes
    7. Use a needle and embroidery floss to stitch along the transfer pen lines. After you’ve finished stitching, you can machine wash the tote to remove the blue transfer pen lines.
    8. Place a large amount of glue on the back of the pom poms
    9. Adhere the pom poms onto the bag and allow them to dry completely
