How to make a fur pom-pom - step 1

You need:

  • Real or faux fur (I purchased some real fur skins from a local second hand shop with 8 eur a piece)
  • Something round for making circles (like a coffee cup)
  • Leather needle
  • Scissors
  • Extra strong thread
  • Some filling material 

Step 2

Draw circles on the wrong side of the piece, a good way to do that is to draw around the upper bottom edge of a coffee cup. Make them as big as possible. Cut the circles out.

Step 3

Sew with running stitches near the edge around the circle, leave a long end.

Step 4

Cinch the thread slightly so your fur forms a bowl shape, insert the filling material. Cinch the thread the rest of the way until you have a ball. Make few knots to secure. Leave the ends for sewing.
