Last year, when I put out my Buffalo Plaid Slouchy Hat, I wanted to add a fur pom-pom for the perfect finishing touch. I went to every local store I could think of and no one carried them. I decided to publish the pattern with a yarn pom-pom instead and order a fur one online for later. After searching, I finally found a shop on Etsy that sold beautiful ones, only for the shop owner to take a fall/holiday break. Nooo!
I scoured the internet, wondering if there was possibly a way to make DIY Fur Pom-Poms. I couldn’t conceive that it was possible to make them! I found a tutorial and the main technique was much easier than I though! I made a fur pom-pom the way she described, cutting the circle out with scissors. But… it looked like it had a bad haircut on the bottom, and it wasn’t hidden when sewn in place. Plus, it made an incredibly hairy mess.
What to do?
Then my husband suggested using my Precision Knife to cute the fabric back.
