I have a lot of scrap fabric at home, left over from other projects. So I started putting this to good use. I simply tore this fabric into thin strips to replace the wool. The results are rather interesting. I was only working in white, but I can’t wait to try some colour combinations. There are some great online tutorials out there.
This shows a quick way of making pompoms:
This way takes a lot longer, but you don’t need to cut the pompom back and I think it produces a nicer result.
