Polly

I know I am in the middle of Shoe Sauce week, but… I thought of this last night and could not wait to share it! This is Polly. So bubbly and bright… makes me feel warm even though it's 28 degrees out.

Start with 6 strips of 3/4 inch ribbon 3 inches long. Roll each strip, and use hot glue to adhere one end to the other.

Cut a 1.5 inch diameter circle of felt. Use a small amount of hot glue to attach the one inch diameter pom to the felt. I purchased the poms from Hobby Lobby.

Use hot glue to attach each ribbon loop to the felt.

So fun to make! So pretty to look at!

The Real Deal: It cost me less than $0.50 to make this flower.

  1. This is awesome! My daughter LOVES pompoms and I am always looking for things to do with them. I think I may use this and make barrettes.

  2. Another super-cute flower tutorial! Just curious, but how do you name your projects/flowers? They're so cute and creative and I want to name my wreaths because I make so many (the number in my apartment right now is pretty disgusting), but I can't decide on a theme or how to name them, so I thought I'd get your advice since you have super-cute names for everything you make!

  3. These are soooo cute!!!  I linked to your tutorial over at Craft Gossip Sewing:

  4. where do you find your ribbon? it is what attracted me to your tutorial-i made the ruffled bracelets today after i found them this morning.

  5. very cute.  Just made these.  The pom pom was  $ .03, the ribbon $ .10, the felt $ .01 and the alligator clip $ .20…I am figuring getting items on sale at Hobby Lobby the total is under $.35 for this adorable bow and hair clip.  Thanks so much for the idea.
     

  6. Awesome! I’m still learning on the fabric and sewing side! Polly is definitely going to become one of my favorites! I recently started quilting also! Be blessed
