Pompoms, they’re all the rage this season! When you think pom pom, you probably imagine a fluffy ball topping a knit hat, but classic round pompoms are just the beginning. With some careful wrapping, some artful trimming, and a little needle felting, you can turn grandma’s pompom into a work of art. In this class, you’ll learn the magic of advanced pompom-ing, and create an adorable fluffy bunny pompom for the easter basket. Once you get the basics, you’ll be able to create any number of creatures and even design your own custom decorative pompoms. For this class, you’ll need a small pair of sharp scissors and a pompom maker. The class includes the materials to create a sweet little bunny, and Gauge has stocked up on fabulous modern pompom makers that you can purchase, or you can bring your own. I’ll even show you how to make a quick DIY pompom maker out of cardboard for pompom emergencies. Be forewarned, advanced pompom-ing is incredibly addictive, so be prepared for these bunnies to start multiplying as you use up all the leftover yarn in your stash!
