Pompoms make me feel nostalgic and I miss my Grandma. Every Christmas, we got new handmade PJs and crocheted slippers with big pompoms on the front from my Grandma. She was a very talented and industrious women.
So for something different, I decided to make a pompom bunting for Olivia's party. My mom had recently made cute pompom decorations for a baby shower she threw, so I was inspired. I usually make some sort of fabric or paper banner, bunting, or pendant for kid's parties. This one was a little time consuming, but I actually enjoyed making all these pompoms.
I decided I would try a Clover Pompom maker, I have made my own pompom forms with cardboard, but I thought this might be a faster method. And when I opened last month's Martha Stewart Living Magazine, there was a whole article on pompoms. How did they know I was planning to make a whole bunch of pompoms? And they suggested the Clover pompom maker, so I thought why not. Who am I to question the experts. It was faster, and I think that maybe my pompoms were a little more uniform in shape and size.
