One of the joys of reading other people’s blogs is picking up ideas and having a go at it yourself. I had discovered pom-pom makers on the Attic24 blog a while back but it wasn’t until Lucie of the lovely Love, Lucie blog wrote this post that I considered using them as parcel decorations…. Now I am hooked. This is one of those easy and effective little yarny touches that just adds zing to a parcel. Mollie photo bombed my picture!
Is this a present for a CAT Mum?!
And here’s the picture I was actually trying to take:
Incidentally my friend who owns my LYS said that since the pom-pom makers appeared on Kirstie Allsop’s show they could have sold twice the extremely large amount they’d ordered in! I have two at present – a one inch and three quarters of an inch – the extra small set – but I do know my lovely husband has bought me some for Christmas too!
2014 truly will be pom-pom-tastic! Actually the end of 2013 might be! Sam and I are getting together tomorrow with the express purpose of making pom-poms!
