Today sharing a fabulous invention of a creative and wonderful cyber friend, with her kind permission. She came up with the idea to create pom poms from ribbons and rubber bands. They make incredibly cute accessories to dress up your bag and here's how to make your own. Many thanks again, dear P and good luck to everyone!
You need about 1.30 meters of ribbon and a few rubber bands.
Scrunch and twist your rubber bands into a little ball. Leave about 17cm of ribbon as the end bit.
Start winding the longer end of the ribbon around the rubber ball.
Try to wind the ribbon tightly and in a crisscrossing way, much like winding wool into a ball. Always stay clear of the 15 cm long end ribbon, just keep winding around it.
Once you've used up all the ribbon, fold the end over and secure with a few stitches to the ball.
You can either knot your pom pom onto the handle or metal ring of your bag, or you could create a loop to attach it.
For the loop, fold about 7cm of the end ribbon onto itself..
and fix it with a few stitches.
Attach your pom pom to your bag in the same way as you'd do with a clochette. (Wind the ribbon around a handle or pull through a metal ring, then feed the pom pom through the loop you have just created)
