    Amazing! 5OP my savior!!! I’m from Nairobi, Kenya. I was browsing through docor ideas and came across ’tissue’ pom poms which I liked but was abit unsure about them considering I would use them only for a short while during my event decor work… I tried looking up ‘fabric pom pom’ and wow!! I read through your procedure a while ago and am really gratified. I have just completed a lilac fine-knit fabric pom, which looks fabulous considering it was just a try-out. I have a line of events this month, I was getting sick of the cliche decor style in my city but this right here will help me stand out. I’m dying to try it out on glittered net fabric before I go to bed. I will update you on how it turns out!! ASANTE SANA! (Thank you)

    Oh these are lovely. I adore fabric pom poms. We’ve had so much fun making these in the past and yes they are a great way of using up special bits of fabric!

    Very, very pretty! Such a smart way to recycle clothing that cannot be given away and are too lovely (or once was) to be used as rags. Love the cozy, sweet pom pom tree. As always, thank you for the inspiration!

    What a great idea! We’ve made them many times from yarn, but it never occurred to me to use fabric.

    Thank you so much for this idea! The next time I borrow my friend’s eight year old daughter, she and I will be all over this one!

    What a great tutorial Lisa! I really like the idea of using the kids old cothing that I just love too much to give away. These are so cute, and this will be a project in our near future

  21. Amanda

    These are so cool! I have never made pom poms before. Now I feel like I have to, I just can’t figure out what I should do with them. Maybe decorate a banner? How ever they are used it would be a great way to use fabric scraps! Thank you for sharing!


  22. Teresa

    Those are so cute! I think I’ll get some of that Christmas fabric at 50 percent off and make some sort of large ones into Christmas ornaments…

  23. halfpastafreckle

    so, so cute big sis!

  24. AG Ambroult

    I love those! What a great idea your sister– HMPH! 😉 — had!
    thanks for the tutorial

  25. renee @ FIMBY

    very sweet. I have some failing apart flannels I’ve been wondering what to do with. This is a neat idea but then I’m not sure what I’d “do” with the pom-pom either!

  26. juana

    Lisa, your creativity amazes me everyday! Looooooove them! I am going to make a trilion!lol

  27. Linda

    These are divine! I love them!

  28. Mama Rainbow

    Love love love them! I have a huge stash of fabric scraps that I’ve been aiming to use up this year – now I know what I can do with some of them. I love this idea, thank you.

  29. Shady Lady

    These are the most beautiful pom-poms I have even seen!!!

  30. TONYA

    What a fabulous idea. I make them out of yarn all the time, but I’d never thought to use fabric. Sounds like a great activity that the little ones could help me with. Saving this for a rainy day. Thank you.

  31. Stephanie

    At the beginning, I thought… Oh, they’re beautiful decorations!! And then I got to that last picture, and totally melted. Love, love, love it.

  32. Hip Mountain Mama

    This is very cool! thanks for the idea!

  33. Ivy

    Sadly I have to admit I’ve never made a pom pom on any type. But I’m thinking my little M might just love this. Thanks!

  34. Joy

    Very cute idea! We’ll have to try that. :)

  35. Andrea

    What a great idea! I love it and will definitely try this one for package decorations, etc.

  36. Kathleen

    pretty…love this idea! What a neat idea for ornaments too…a way to remember the little ladies when they were little, sniffle.

  37. Julia

    These are great. I saw an idea on a card at Hobby Lobby that showed how you could make “hydrangeas” and “carnations” out of fabric pom poms. I bet you could master that too.
