Just a random little post for you guys today but I wanted to share with you my new hobby: making pom poms!
One of my close friends was going through a bit of a hard time. She’s super girly and loves anything pink and fluffy so I had a sudden brain wave and thought it would be cute to make her a pom pom garland. I don’t really know where the idea came from, but I am glad I had it as I have found a real joy in making these cute bundles of yarn!
I popped down to my local hobbycraft, and having never bought wool before I was pleasantly surprised with how cheap it is! Hobbycraft were doing a deal so I grabbed 4 colours: pink, yellow, blue and white. Classic cute colours. I got to work making my friend’s garland and had a nice time in doing so! The result came out like this:
I had such a good time making those that ever since then I have not been able to stop! I have made so many pom poms in a variety of colours and sizes that I decided to start selling them for cheap on depop, so that I could fund to buy more wool and make even more! If you are interested, then why not check out my store (I am taking commissions!): https://www.depop.com/eviejrichards/
I enjoy making pom poms as it is a cute and relaxing task. I like the repetition of it and the outcome of lovely pom poms at the end! I have started making them while listening to my audiobooks for class, and it is a nice way to have some me time.
I think the point of this little post was to remind you guys (as well as myself) that it is important to try new things, as you will never know if something makes you happy. Be it a new hobby, food, or even a new podcast! I think I am going to challenge myself to broaden my horizons and try new things, and I think you should too!
I’d adore to know in the comments below what new hobbies you guys have stumbled across, and if you have any arts&crafts ideas for me!
Lots of love, Evie x
