It's another baby mobile!
I had a ton of fun making the last one, so I made another in a different style. It gave me an excuse to use these babies:
I got these pom pom makers off Amazon.com and I am just a leeeetle bit obsessed with them ...
|PDA = pom pom display of affection|
First, I made a gazillion pom poms in different sizes with some scrap yarn.
I cut the middle out of a whipped cream container lid and used the remaining plastic circle for the frame.
Then I attached all the strings by poking holes in the plastic with a sharp needle and threading them through. I tied knots to keep them in place.
Knotty, knotty. Har, har, har.
To finish it off, I wrapped the frame in white satin ribbon I had from who-knows-what (no photo; I had to stop to extricate a Hot Wheel from Gracie's mouth ... oh, the joys of having a big brother :). I also added a small plastic ring to the top for hanging purposes.
I love how it turned out. For some reason, it reminds me of Dr. Seuss (which is most definitely a good thing!).
It keeps the munchkin entertained, too :-)
P.S. I'll be back tomorrow (hopefully) with the February Crochet Pattern of the Month. Once you make them, you'll have some scrap yarn for pom poms!
POM POMS FTW!
Is there a support group for this?
