I don't actually need to make the pom pom. I found a fairly big pom pom when I was looking for something else and was wondering what I could do with it. I was thinking it would make a good head for something. Now I know!! I have a pom pom maker which has made my pom pom making life so much easier so I am thinking I could make some animal heads and knit, crochet or sew some simple bodies and they would make cute baby toys. It is always nice to be able to reuse things, to make something personal and to have fun at the same time.
