Meet the easiest thing you are going to make this week.  This fluffy pom pom.  Perfect for topping your handcrafted hats.  Yep.. you are going to learn how to make a fur pom pom.I have no idea why in the world I thought this would be such a big project.  It is easy.  Even if you’ve never sewn a stitch in your life, you will be able to make this.  In fact, big sloppy stitches work better than small tiny perfect stitches.  I’m going to talk you right through it.
Here is what you will need:

  • Fur from the craft store
  • A pen
  • A round object (like a lid or a bowl) to trace around
  • A little bit of stuffing
  • Scissors
  • Needle and matching thread


The first step to learning how to make a fur pom pom is to pick out the perfect fur.  Head over to your favorite craft store and check out their fur section.  Hobby Lobby has some good choices but JoAnn has a bigger selection.  Pick out fur with medium to long strands (in other words, do not go for the short fur).  If you’ve never bought fabric before, the price is on the end of the bolt.

But before you look at the price, panic, and put the entire bolt back in a huff wondering why in the world I’d even suggest you buy something so expensive, take a deep breath.  You only need 1/4 of a yard.  Plus you need to pull up the app for the store on your phone and snag the coupon.
You will likely be getting this on sale or at a good discount.  You can make multiple pom pom’s out of each section of fur you buy, so the cost per pom pom goes down when you make more.  Or you can make just one and then add the whole pile of leftover fur to your stash because..hey..the yarn stash was lonely and needed a new friend.
