Fasten off and sew in ends.



Optional Pom-Pom

Using contrast color; cut a 24” piece of yarn and lay it on a flat surface to begin. Next, using your hand, wrap yarn in contrasting color around about 60 times. Carefully slip the yarn off your hand and lay on top of the 24” piece of yarn. Tie knot at the center, 2 times. 


Using the long pieces from the 24” piece of yarn and a tapestry needle sew in and out of the center of the pom-pom to help hold it together. Now you can cut through all the loops and trim the pom-pom up until it’s even and looks nice. Using the longer pieces from the 24” yarn piece sew on to top of hat.

Photo Tutorial: How to Make Faux Fur Pom-Poms!


You'll be surprised just how easy it is to make your own pom-poms and you will save a bunch of money too, especially if you take advantage of Hobby Lobby or Joann Fabrics 40% off coupons!

Skill Level: Easy

Finished Size: Approx. 4"

Supplies:
Faux Fur Fabric (9" x 9" piece, unless you would like a larger pom-pom)
Scissors or X-acto knife
Tape Measure
CD or similar round object (optional)
Poly-fil (optional)
Yarn (approx. 1 yard per pom-pom)

Step 1
Select your desired faux fur!



Step 2
With the fur side down, lay your fur on a flat surface. This is best done outside depending on the fur your chose, it can get pretty messy.

Using the CD as a guide, mark 8 inches horizontally and vertically. 




 Step 3
Using the lines you marked, join them and draw a circle. It does not need to be a perfect circle. As you can see, mine isn't!

 
Step 4:
Cut the circle out. I found the X-acto knife works best for this, you will lose less fur. Set aside your fur scraps. 



Step 5:
With your tapestry needle and yarn use the basting stitch to work around the entire circle.




Step 6:
Now, place the fur scraps (or poly-fil) in the center of the circle. 



Step 7: 
Gently pull both ends of the yarn to close your pom-pom. 



Step 8:
Use the tapestry needle sew the rest of the opening shut & knot the two ends together.



Ta-da! All done and ready to be attached to your favorite crochet or knit beanie!
