Hi, crafters and welcome! Faux Fur poms are super popular right now so I thought this might be a helpful tutorial. Let’s get right to it, shall we?!
- Faux Fur
- Worsted weight yarn
- Tapestry/Yarn Needle
- Permanent marker
- A round object. The larger the circular item, the bigger the pom will be.
- All items can be purchased from local craft stores. The items above are a mix of products from Hobby Lobby, Michaels and JoAnn’s Fabrics.
- To begin, select circular item, marker, scissors and fabric. (You can move polyfill, yarn and needle to the side. You will use these items to tie the pom together later in the tutorial).
- Flip fabric and use marker to trace a circle on the back side of the fabric as shown below.
- Use scissors to cut around the circle.
- Weave needle in and out around the entire piece of fabric as shown below.
- Pull yarn to make pom take its shape, and grab the polyfill.
- The amount shown above will be more than sufficient to stuff a pom of this size. Stuff Pom until it feels nice and full.
- Pull yarn tight and tie several knots to secure.
- That’s it! Use yarn to attach to desired beanie, bonnet, etc.
I’ve left a few additional tips below..
- Thread can be used instead of yarn.
- Use a neutral color yarn OR match the yarn to the item you’re attaching it to for best results.
- Tie pom to item several times, threading in and out of the pom and the item you are attaching it to.
- As stated at the beginning of the tutorial, the larger the circular item, the bigger the pom will be.
- A little bit of the faux fur fabric goes a long way. A half of a yard will be more than sufficient to make several poms.
I hope you found this tutorial helpful. Thank you for taking the time to check it out! For questions and comments, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Happy pom making & God bless you all, friends!!
