Faux Fur Pom Pom

Capture

Guys you cannot buy pompoms this luxurious.. maybe on Etsy but my point is homemade is the way to go.. as a crafter, that is my philosophy for most things..
If you’re a crocheter and want the FREE pattern for this hat, you can get it by following this link:
http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/la-vie-en-rose-earflap-hatNow, I’ve bought A LOT of faux fur pompoms but I had to stop using them because of the weight alone! They are heavy! When I attach them to my hats, they bob around instead of being a nice secure pompom!

Do not be intimated, this is so easy you won’t believe it! They take 7-10 minutes and they are a fraction of the cost!

Materials:
Craft Fur (I got mine from Hobby Lobby for $2.99)
A large sewing needle
A strong thread
Scissors
Polyfill/fiberfill
​Sharpie
A Circle template for tracing. I used an old CD!

​Step 1: Lay out your fur with the fur face down

​Step 2: Trace around the CD or circle template. I used a Sharpie.

​Step 3: Cut it out.

Step 4:
With the needle and thread do a simple stitch around the edge. I’m no seamstress guys!

​Step 5: Start to pull the circle closed and add a little polyfill.

​Step 6: Pull it tight and tie a triple knot. Attach to hat! It’s that simple guys!

… and that’s it guys! Easy peasy, right?

  1. Ingenious, thank you so much for sharing. Fantastic alternative to heavy pompoms. I might just have to take a trip to Hobby craft to look for suitable fabric now 😀
