(sorry, somehow this picture was omitted the first publishing) Wow, I never knew how totally easy this was until I had to make a pom-pom for Katy Kitty's new beret. (I got the excellent idea for putting a pom-pom on the beret from Molly Monkey pattern tester, Chandra).
I followed Bella Dia's very well-done tutorial and made one! It only took like, five minutes. And I had a nice little pom-pom the exact color and size I wanted. Now I'm trying to think of all kinds of uses for pom-poms so I can make more.
