So now everyone loves the pompom keyrings even the Kardashian's/Jenner's have been spotted with them!
At some places I give it them for being good business minded, but, they can be expensive, so, I thought today I would show you how to make them!
What you are going to need
Faux fur 15cm diameter (in colour of your choice)
a tape measure
a sewing needle
A palm full of stuffing
Thread similar to the fur
A key chain clasp
A small length of elastic
The first thing you are going to do, is get your elastic, and, keychain clasp, hook the clasp through the elastic, and, sew the elastic together so the clasp can't fall out.
Next, you need to lay the fur flat and sew in the elastic so you know where to start from and end.
When you have sewn it together, you need to do a concertina stitch (I don't know if that's what it's called but I have a visual for you below)
But basically this will make the fabric come together and make it a pompom shape.
I usually do 4 bits at a time and just make my way round the circle.
Once you have it all sown, pull the thread round so that it gathers round, don't forget a knot in one end so that it doesn't all undo your hard work!
Once you have got it so it is partially gathered, get your stuffing, and gather the rest, and, pull tight.
Eventually, it will look a little something like this.
You will need to tighten round and tie a knot tight and then you will have your very own pompom!
Then you can have as many as you like you can even make them for friends its a really nice home made gift!
Until Next Time
