FO Friday 15.02.19

Hey guess what? I got a whole nother adult hat out of my Caron Cupcake. Here they are together.

What a cute pair.

I have to say I don’t much enjoy sewing pompoms on. How do you stop them flopping all over the place? I tried sewing it as tight as I possibly could and it was still a bit woobly so I took it off.

My first Caron Cupcake experience was not at all what I expected. I will have to write a post about it, but not right now; I need a serious tidy up of my box room so I can make enough space for my very own bow!! I’ve been doing archery for almost a year now and I’m suuuuuuper excited to finally get my own equipment. So I’d better go and get on with it.

Has anyone else got FOs to share? Any fun plans for this weekend? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I’m wondering if your pom-poms were too heavy. I am not a pom-pom kinda gal, so I don’t really know anything about anything. It just occurred to me that by trying to make them floofier, they might become too heavy for the hat. Maybe you could try to imitate the ones that have a snap attachment? Keep us posted!

  2. I have trouble with pompoms too. I just made my daughter a hat with one, by the time she came in from playing in the snow it was all floppy. I took a thinner yarn (one that was on hand) and went through the center of the pom, around where the knot is, and then tied it on the hat again. It worked! It seemed much more solid and hasn’t looked floppy since. Hope this helps! Oh, saw your bow on IG, it is beautiful!
