Pom Pom Making
This is the kit of 4 Pom Pom makers. I bought the size of 35mm, 45mm, 65mm, and 85mm.
Open arm of the pom pom maker side-way, do the same to the other arm.
Wind a full load of yarns onto it. Distribute evenly throughout the arm
Repeat the same on the other side by bringing the yarn over and wind. You don’t have to cut the yarn.
When the arms are fully wind, close back the arms to it’s original position.
Use a pair of sharp point scissors to cut the circumference.
Tie with a yarn or strong string which you can pull real hard to tighten the Pom Pom.
Tip: I apply fabric glue in this area after taking the Pom Pom kit out to ensure the yarn won’t come out when you accidentally pull the Pom Pom.
Open both arms and separate the Kit from the Pom Pom you have made.
Not-so-round Pom Pom waiting for it’s hair cut and trimming.
Trim it to your desire shape and size for your project, can be lightly trim or heavily trim. Be sure to fluff the Pom Pom regularly when trimming so that all yarn is straightened out.
A little skill is needed if you plan for heavily trim, but I have a tip on how to do it fast and nice.
This is the lightly trim version of a round Pom-Pom. You may trim more to get a firmer pom-pom with shorter hair.
See how many I can make in a short period of time! I did all these in 1 hour, including the trimming. Noticed the 2 orange small Pom Poms, that are heavily trimmed version, they used to be in the size of the one next to them, but I trimmed them down to make a pair of hair pins for my daughter. It is from the left over yarn of her bareback halter neck knitted top.
If you want to make a Pom-Pom elastic band like the first photo, just glue the elastic band onto the center of the Pom Pom. Make sure you wait until the fabric glue is tacky on both sides (about 5 to 10 minutes) before joining them together. Let it fully dry over night before using it.
