Pompom inspiration

Posted on September 14, 2014 by The Makery | 1 comment

With one week to go until The Handmade Fair in Hampton Court, London we couldn't resist getting in on the action and talking about one of our favourite subjects, pompoms!

Headed up by Kirstie Allsopp, The Handmade Fair team are aiming to break the Guinness World Record for the longest line of pompoms and raise money for the charity Sense to help support adults and children who are deafblind.

Are you taking part in #worldpomination? Have you made some pompoms? If you haven't done it yet, you still have time. Just pop over to #WorldPomination and find out how you can take part. 

We have long been pinners of pompoms on our Pinterest board and love how versatile and easy to make they are. Have you got a pompom board? Share it with us and we will follow back. 

At The Makery pompoms are an essential crafty staple crafty. We sell the regular size pompom makers as well as the mega large. The big one is so popular and would make a perfect super sized bobble hat like this gorgeous one by YesJess on Etsy

YesJess - we like it!

 Have you made something with our giant pompom maker? We'd love to hear, just share on our Facebook or Twitter and we'll post them up.

Oh and check out this pompom love-in on style blog HonestlyWTF celebrating the Pom Pom factory who make their pompoms from 100% bio-degradable and recycled tissue paper. They create them for weddings, store windows, fashion shoots and parties but can also make installations. How stunning is the umbrella design!

    I knit when I’m sick too, but it’s my “main” craft anyway so it’s not that much dienrefft from my regular crafting activity. It helped a lot, though, one time when I came down with a terrible flu (including fever and a very painful throat) on the same day I had my two wisdom teeth removed. Whenever I look at the mittens I knit on those few days, I remember the comfort they provided (and the drops of sweat they absorbed :)
