pom poms make everything better.
what is it about a pom pom that makes us go so giddy? is it just fun to say? i think it must be some sort of childhood flashback, or perhaps it’s that they’re just so darn cheerful to look at — it’s like i’m five years old again everytime i see one. there’s kind of a nostaligic vintage vibe to a pom pom, too. let’s face it, i’m just a sucker for anything with a pom pom on it, and have several throw blankets to prove it. i’m pretty into anything felted and fringed, too — even fashion. i think they’re fairly easy to make — check out this tutorial on sugar & cloth (above + below). when in doubt, put a pom pom on it!
