Pom Pom Tutorial – Elmo & Cookie Monster
I will still do some pom-pom projects this week. Hopefully you can have some gift ideas for the upcoming Christmas
Pom Pom is the easiest craft I found to be able to make various cartoon features. All you need is to trim and assemble it with fabric glue. This time I am demonstrating how to make pom poms for Sesame Street characters. I picked Elmo and Cookie Monster, the more popular characters from Sesame Street. I wanted to make Big Bird, but I couldn’t get the yellow yarn of its kind, sooo…. here you are, the tutorial for making Elmo and Cookie Monster Pom Pom
Tips: If this is the first time you landed in this blog and wanted to make pom pom, you might find these 2 post useful, Basic Pom Pom Making and Pom Pom Trimming.
Material you will need:
1. A Red pom pom of 70mm diameter [Elmo face]. Attached a key-chain holder if you prefer.
2. An Orange pom pom of 25mm diameter [nose].
3. A pair of 20mm diameter wiggle eyes.
4. A 20mm x 60mm black felt cut into the shape as shown [mouth].
5. Fabric glue
Apply some fabric glue on the center line of the black felt. Wait for 5-10 minutes before folding it so that the glue gets tacky. Secure it in this position until the center line sticks. I don’t have a spare hand, so I used my scissor to do the job for me.
Stick the eyes and nose after 5-10 minutes.
Check if the mouth’s center line on the black felt is joined (it should by now, if not wait for another few minutes).
Elmo looks miserable without the mouth :p
Apply fabric glue at the position where you want to put the mouth. Do the same to the back of the black felt mouth. Wait for another 5-10 minutes before inserting the black felt into the pom pom.
Ewww…. Elmo is salivating from his mouth lol…
