Cutie Pom Pom Valentine's

Today I made these little cuties out of pom poms (that I made), foam sheets, google eyes, and ribbon.
The ribbon says "I love you this much."
All together, I have made 6 so far.  They are very easy to make.  The feet are foam hearts.  I covered the end of the cut ribbon with glue so keep it from fraying.  Pom pom makers were used to make the bodies.
All of the yarn came from the same ball of yarn.  It variegates from white to pink.  Do you remember little guys like this from the 70's?  They would have sticky feet so that you could stick them onto different surfaces.  If you would like yours to have sticky feet, the craft stores sell foam stickers in both the sheets and as precut hearts.  The red ribbon on 4 of them says "Happy Valentine's Day."

I can't wait to make more and give them to people for Valentine's Day.

  3. Long before there were pom-pom makers, there was cardboard. We just wrapped yarn around a piece of corregated cardboard, slid it off, tied it in the middle and cut the ends. Simple.
