Pompons are the bomb!

Nos petits doigts blogger Chloé revamps the classic shirt with two of the most current trends: colourful wool pompoms and beading. Get ready to shake your pompoms!

Instructions:

How to customize clothing with pompoms and beading?

Step 1: Make pompoms using a pompom maker. To make multi-coloured pompoms, simply stop working with one colour and switch to another. For more texture and style, make various sized pompoms of different colours.

Step 2: Attach pompoms with broach pins (a great trick to easily remove and reattach them). Note: We don’t recommend sewing the pompoms directly onto the shirt as they may get damaged in the wash.  

Step 3: Continue personalizing the shirt with the beading. Place the embroidery frame over the chosen area. To attach a pearl or bead, stich the fabric from back to front, thread the bead and finish the stich from front to back. Repeat several times to secure the bead. Note: We used black thread to clearly demonstrate the technique, but it’s best to use thread that is the same colour as the item of clothing.

You will need:

  • Wool
  • Pompom maker
  • Pearls and beads
  • Embroidery needle and thread
  • Embroidery frame
  • Scissors
  • Broach pins

Choose thick cotton clothing for more structure and better hold. Use pompoms and beading to personalize all kinds of accessories from jean jackets, to cotton bags to blankets...
