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, so here you are, the tutorial for making Pom-Pom Elmo and Pom-Pom Cookie Monster 🙂
DIY Pom-Pom Elmo
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
Stick the eyes and nose after 5-10 minutes.
Check if the mouth’s centerline on the black felt is joined (it should by now, if not wait for another few minutes).
Pom-Pom 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…. Pom-Pom Elmo is salivating from his mouth lol…
You can make Cookie Monster the same way too, use Blue pom-pom instead and omit the orange nose 🙂
