Sone from Polli Blog posted these adorable photos of herself wearing our Everafter Dress, and our Folktales handbag from our Winter 12 Collection. The crochet peter pan collar on the dress is so sweet, it is one of our favourites!
As the weather is getting cooler, it is nice to spend some time indoors with a cup of tea working on a few DIY projects!
Why not try our winter inspired Yarn Wrapped Sticks project? A cute and simple way to add a wintery and cosy feel to your home! You can add pom poms and create a window hanging, or place them in a nice large vase!
It is still warm outside, however we are getting very excited for our Winter season to drop instore, and we are celebrating by getting together and holding a Pom Pom making crafternoon in our office! All of us lovely ladies are getting together over some baked goodies to create pom pom garlands! I found this great D.I.Y tutorial on Honestly WTF which we will be following to make our own bright, fluffy pom poms!
You Will Need:
Pom Pom maker ( this will allow you to make pom poms about 10 times faster than the conventional method, you can buy this from spotlight)
The Pom Pom Maker separates the process into two halves; you’ll start the first half of the pom pom by cutting about 6.5 meters of yarn. Wrap the yarn from one edge of the arch to the other, making sure you have the entire area covered. Close the arch and repeat the same steps on the other side. Once both arches are covered, insert your scissors into the middle ridge and cut along the entire circle. Tie off your pom pom by slipping a piece of yarn along the middle, pull it into a tight knot, open your arch and pull your pom pom maker apart. Trim up your pom pom if necessary but leave the long piece of yarn you used to tie it together, as you’ll need that to attach your pom poms to the garland.
