In my last newsletter* I included instructions on making pom pom bunnies, and I rather skipped over making the pom poms themselves. I have had a request for a reminder about how to make them, so here goes…
pom pom making tutorial
Making this tutorial I have realised how much quicker it is to use a pom pom maker. They work in just the same way as the cardboard rings but each half of both rings open up so you can use a full ball of yarn, and the two rings clip together so the strands are less likely to fall out as you cut between the rings.
Over on my Facebook page there has been a lot of enthusiasm about my little Easter bunnies, so how about a giveaway? If you would like one of these little bunnies…they are only wee, just 13cm to 15cm tall depending on the type of wool and the length I cut the ears…just leave me a comment here or on my Facebook page.
I will draw the winner on Sunday afternoon and announce the winner here and on my Facebook page. If you would rather make one yourself, you can sign up for my newsletter which will have making instructions!
* these little bunnies are only for decoration – they are NOT toys and are made with beads and trimmings that could be a choking hazard for a child.
