Week 1: Pom Flower and Half Tied Pom

Poms have been everywhere on the internet. They are magical. They are furry and cute and you can make them with a ball of yarn, a pair of scissors and a couple of fingers. Pretty magical.

So starting out this 52 weeks of fabric flowers; let's revisit the delightful little pom and hang out with her little sister the half tied pom. 

If you find yourself saying, "What's a pom?" Well, watch the video after the jump.

If you know the pom, let me introduce you to the half tied pom. The half tied gets its name because it's a pom but you stop earlier in the process.

Note: In the video I show you how to put a stem on after you've clipped the flower. After making dozens of these, I learned a very useful tip. Glue the stem on when the flower is in a half tied pom stage. Cut after the glue has dried. This makes adding the stem infinitely more easy.

Video after the jump!
