Fur Pom Pom Tutorial

So I found this awesome fur fabric at Joann Craft Store for a  STEAL after Halloween. I think it was $7 a yard, so naturally I bought all they had left. I’m working on some secret projects with it, so it’s cut into a bazillion pieces and scattered around my sewing room. I had these pieces left over that I couldn’t bear to throw away, so I said hey, why not make fur pom poms?

Because really everything looks better with a pom pom on it.

Want to make your own? Here’s how:

  1. Cut a circle out of your fur fabric. The diameter of the circle should be 7″.
  2. Baste around the circle with a needle and embroidery thread.
  3. Cinch the thread slightly so your fur forms a bowl shape, then stuff it with cotton balls.
  4. Cinch the thread the rest of the way until you have a ball. Tie the end of the embroidery thread in a double knot.
  5. Sew the pom to the top of the hat with five or six stitches. Knot the embroidery thread and you’re done!

The best part is, it’s not permanent. Whenever fur poms go out of fashion I can easily take it off and move on to the next trend. Are you as fickle as I am when it comes to fashion?

  1. Yes, yes, yes! I started seeing these a few years ago when we lived in Copenhagen and always wanted one. I never thought of actually making on myself. Now I need to go check and see if there’s any faux fur left at my JoAnn.

  2. Can I call you a genius! Thank you so much for sharing this as buying good sized faux fur pom poms is pretty difficult and yarn pom poms are never secure enough to handle washing or wear and tear! Thank you!!!

I love feedback! What did you think of this article?
