I have one more pom pom animal to share today. My son requested that I make him a penguin and then shortly after, a friend emailed me that she wanted to make a penguin as well. So, yesterday, I figured out how to make one:
I made a black pom pom for the head and a half black and half cream pom pom for the body. (To create half colors just wrap the yarn around the cardboard in one color on one side and the other color on the other side. Slide off sleeve, place on floss and tie and cut just as you would a single colored pom pom.)
I cut the beak and feet from orange felt. The arms were cut from black felt and attached where the head attaches to the body.
I made the eyes by using some textured white brads and then adding black rhinestones to the centers.
