Start Making Kawaii Pom Poms!

Posted on


I recently got back into making pom poms and it’s incredibly addictive. There are lots of products and tutorials for kawaii pom poms now so here’s some of my favourites.

I have a few Clover pom pom makers in different sizes, including a tiny one! – but my new favourite is the Pom Maker. Not only does it look like a donut, but it’s made of wood and so much nicer to handle. I’ve found it works way better than plastic or cardboard makers, especially for multicolour pom poms, plus you can use the same one to make different sizes.

Pom Maker also have some amazing videos on YouTube including a beginner’s guide and pandas, bunnies, ghosts and more! Their tutorials really show the importance of trimming. It takes a long time, but your pom poms will look so much better.

Pokemon trainers can make a whole team of cuties from yarn with the Japanese craft book, Pom Pom Pokemon. Marimo Marshmallow have a fun video of the pom poms being made.

As a huge fan of both pom poms and Sumikko Gurashi, I screamed when I spotted this pom pom and knitting machine. Look how cute all the tiny minikkos are! The machine is quite pricey – and I can only find it on Amazon Japan – but you could easily figure out the pom pom versions without it. I need to make a dustball asap.
