How To Make A Pompom Bag Charm
On 23rd September all Hobbycraft stores across the country are holding a Crafternoon for Mind, the mental health charity. Crafternoon means getting together with friends and family to craft, raise money for Mind and have fun!
We have created a pattern to support Crafternoon so you can get your friends and family’s involved, have fun making and raise money at the same time.
Dk or aran weight yarn of your choice (we have used Caron Simply Soft)
Assorted beads of your choice
Pom pom makers or DIY cardboard pom pom maker
Using a pom pom maker create an assortment of pom poms in different sizes and colours.
2 To make a multi coloured pom pom select
3 to 4 colours of your choice. Start by wrapping a section of the pom pom maker in one colour, then change to another colour and wrap another section of the pom pom maker. Continue in this way until the pompom maker is full and continue as normal.
3 When all the pompoms are made thread your needle and thread on 3 beads of your choice, then thread through the center of one of the pompoms.
4. Continue to add beads and pom poms until you have the length that you want for your charm, making sure you finish with beads.
5. Now skip the last bead that you threaded and go back through the rest of the beads and pompoms until you get back to the first set of beads.
6. Using the keyring, knot both ends of the thread to the keyring.
