Pom Pom Accesories

I have wanted a pom pom on my head for quite a while now. I can't actually remember what sparked the idea but it may have been Sonia Rykel's A/W 10 collection.

I remember making a pom pom at school when I was four but I wanted one of those net one I'd seen, that looked more curly than usual. I spent ages trying to find a tutorial and eventually figured out that you made them the exact same way! Although the ones below are actually made in a different way.

I made my pom pom from some pink net I had about. I glue gunned a clip and some felt on so I can attach it to my head. I still want a giant one for my head which I'm half way though making.

I also for a little while have been kicking about the idea that I wanted bright pink pom poms on my navy ballet pump shoes. I didn't want to glue the pom poms to the shoes permanently, because there might be occasions where I don't want pom poms and I'm worried the yarn will get all matted and gunked up and that'll be the end of that. I glued gunned clip-on earring clips so I could clip the pom poms on and off.
