I have a really cute craft book to share with you today! It's called Adventures in Pompom Land
and has 25 different heirloom quality animals that you can make from pompoms!
These are handmade pompoms made of wool yarn, not like the ones you buy by the bag at the craft store. The pompoms are then trimmed and shaped to become the sweetest little animals you ever saw. Many of them have felt and felted wool roving as added features.
There are instructions for all the techniques used and plenty of pictures for each project. I was most amazed at how the subtle shaping of the pompoms really brings each animal to life.
One of my favorites is this adorable fluffy-tailed gray squirrel and the author has graciously shared the tutorial here for you to give it a try!
