Pom-Pom

With white:
(1) Begin by laying out a strand of yarn about 18" in length. (2) Using your hand with your fingers slightly spaced, (3) wrap yarn around your hand 50-70 times. (4) Carefully slip the yarn off your hand and place it centered on top of the 18" strand. (5) Tie a knot twice. (6) With your tapestry needle secure the center of the pom-pom by sewing through the center with each end a few times. (7) This next part is optional but I like to make sure my pom-poms are very secure so next I run a bead of either fabric or Elmer's glue around the center. Let the glue dry. (8) Cut through each loop. (9) Trim pom-pom to desired size being sure not to trim the original 18" strand. Use this strand to sew the pom-pom to the top of the hat.
