Want to make some “poms?” That’s the name I’ve coined for cute creatures made out of homemade pom poms. All you really need is yarn.
Some other optional supplies are thread, bobby pins for legs, felt for ears, and I made the eyes/nose out of dabs of dried paint that I put on butcher paper. I added some detail to the eyes once the black paint was dry but! goggly eyes are always a good option. My pom was modeled after my good friends beloved cat, Pumpkin. But! You can take this anywhere.
First you make poms poms. I used this tutorial. Then I wrapped the bobby pins in thread that I dipped in Elmers. The rest is pretty self explanatory. I attached everything by sewing to the pom pom but glue works too! POMS AWAY!
STEP TWO: LIGHTLY TRACE YOUR HAND ON THE SHEET OF PAPER
STEP 3: BEGIN DRAWING HORIZONTAL LINES ON YOUR PAGE
… UNTIL YOU REACH YOUR HAND OUTLINE THEN MAKE CURVED LINE
THE “HILL" BEGINS AT ONE END OF THE OUTLINE AND ENDS ON THE NEXT PART OF THE OUTLINE YOU ENCOUNTER. CONNECT THE CURVED LINES WITH STRAIGHT LINES (IN THE AREAS IN BETWEEN YOUR HAND OUTLINE). I LIKE TO IMAGE THE LINE AS THE PATH AN ANT WOULD WALK IN IF IT WERE CRAWLING OVER YOUR HAND.
