The Clover Pom Pom Maker



Is it just me or is anyone else feeling a little post-holiday letdown? I can't seem to get it together to get stuff back where it belongs. Around here when company is coming we need to move a couple of chairs into the living room, put the leaf in the table, and just in general shuffle crap around so it doesn't look like we're the packrats we are. Which seriously, why do we have so much stuff? I'd make a resolution about it but I figure that would doom it to failure.

In the spirit of grip getting, yesterday Frankie and I cracked out the Clover Pom Pom makers I ordered from SuperBuzzy and got busy. I don't know what happened to all the pom poms we made but it was fun. We're inspired by the cute pom poms on designer goods we've seen. I tried one out of fabric strips but really didn't care for the results. I think the idea deserves looking into again. It could be cute with slightly thinner strips and possibly adding different mixed up fabrics. I'd love to see what anyone else comes up with. I remember making pom poms with my mom when I was little. We always used the cardboard from the package of bias tape or rick rack, old skool style.

So what's everyone else up to? I'm going to spend some time in my sewing room even if I don't do a thing. Maybe I'll pick up some stuff in there. Hmm. Well, better not get ahead of myself.

ARGH... this new blogger is making me work! This is my second attempt at a comment!

Helloooo PKM!

Happy post Christmas! Sorry to hear you all are sick now. Misery loves company??? I hope so, as I'm feeling it now too. I've got the post Christmas funk as well, and am trying to get all the dec packed up and put away. What the bleep am I doing that for... I should be making pom-poms (though I think they should be called Pam-Pams!).

I'm longing for "normal" and my mornings to be PKM's. I want to be blogging and sewing... but it's just not happening. Trying to get back to normal... DH is on vacation this week so he's doing stuff around the house (good for me kinda stuff). We bought a new front door (gawd my life sounds boring!) and that's the big exciting news at Casa de Zombie!

Is that the fabric pom pom in the corner? I like it, I think it will be cuter after it's worn and fuzzed up by loving hands. Happy New Year!

So are those nifty contraptions the pom pom secret? Because aparently I missed the boat on how to make pom poms. Mine suck with a capitol S-U-C-K. Which makes me so sad since I have such an affinity for poms!
