Pom Pom Animals

Hello! Hope you had a great week!  I finally had a chance to get some more crafty ME time.  Since reading the book Adventures in PomPom Land by Myko Diann Bocek,  I have been thinking of trying to reproduce one of her fabulous pom pom creatures.

I must say, she does an excellent job explaining the process of making the animals.  After learning how to make a uniform pom pom, I went to work creating these two animals. 

I used some of her ideas but then changed a lot of the design.  For example, I didn't want to needle felt arms or legs so I relied on felt and just the contouring of the pom pom for mine.  But, I think part of the fun is taking a design and then making it your own.

Here are the two critters I made--a bunny and a hedge hog.  I am thinking they were a hit since they have already been adopted by my daughter and son. (They barely gave me time to take a picture of them before they were whisked away.)




It was so much fun making these.  I hope to get the chance to make a few more soon!
Thanks for stopping by today!
