I am a big fan of pom-poms...
I have been eying these little loveys in Joanns for the past 4 months. Dreaming of how to use them. I finally decided to buy the mustard yellow ones on a whim and have had them sitting in my craft closet for a month now. I am just trying to come up with exactly what I want to make with them...
Last night my oldest daughter asked for a new skirt for church today. So I tucked her in bed with the promise of a new skirt waiting for her when she woke up....I scanned my stash of fabrics saved up for last minute projects such as this one, and decided that this would be the perfect time to use pom poms... So with coupon in hand I rushed to Joanns before they closed and came home with these white babies!
To make this skirt I used the Simple Skirt Tutorial from MADE and then added the pom poms to the bottom edge to give it a little flare! It was super easy. I used one roll for the top layer and one roll for the bottom layer. Each roll is 4 ft. long. My daughter wears a 2T and I doubled her waist since I wanted a full skirt. So you might need more or less depending on the size you are making. Just take measurements before you go to the store. You can find these pom-poms in the ribbon section of Joanns- it's $3.99 per roll, but using coupons make it a little more reasonable. They also sell bigger and smaller pom-pom ribbon by the yard as well... I can't get enough!!
I love how it turned out, but most importantly my daughter LOVED it! The look on her face this morning was priceless. It was very evident that she felt pretty wearing this skirt too.
What do you like to make with Pom-Poms?? :)
