Shake your Pom Poms Blog Hop

Welcome to my Blooming Where I am Planted blog and the FIRST day of the Shake Your Pom Poms Blog Hop.


This is my second time to hop with Mdm. Samm and I am excited to be here.  Thank you to Thearica from Pig Tales and Quilts and of course Mdm Samm for organizing and cheerleading.  Special thanks to Clover for sponsoring!

When the Shake Your Pom Poms Blog Hop was announced I knew I had to sign up because I had been wanting to make a throw pillow with pom pom fringe for my daughter's room for a while and this would make me do it!

I looked up several tutorials and found this one by Living with Punks.  I wanted to make a small pillow with two colors, black & hot pink.  I didn't want it to be square because most of the throw pillows on my daughter's bed are square.  I thought a rectangle would work well.

Well here it is on the bed in her room.  I think it looks pretty cute. 

Micaela's room has been in transition for the last several months.  We are slowly going from a spring pastel color scheme with flowers and butterflies to hot pink and black modern prints.  Now that these pillows are made, I feel like we are one step closer to finally finishing this room.

Here is a close up of the pillow.... small but cute. 

This small pillow took 6 yards of pom pom fringe.  I was surprised the fringe didn't go farther considering I spaced the rows close together.  To be honest, after about the 9-10th row I was pretty much on auto pilot.  The biggest hassle was switching thread colors for every row.  I tried not switching but it looked bad so I unstitched and did it over.   Overall I am pleased with how this turned out, my 8 year old loves it and that's all that matters.

I've used pom pom fringe on several other projects, see the next enry for pictures. Be sure to stop by the other blogs to see what they did with their pom poms,  thanks for stopping by.

  37. Very cute pillow. I love the idea to use the pre-made pom pom fringe. My mom used to make pom pom pillows with a wooden frame of some sort, but trimming all those pom poms took forever. Your idea is much, much better. So cute!!!!

  50. I'm sure one little girl is in heaven about this pillow. What a great idea. I love the idea of a rectangular pillow. Happy Birthday to the Princess, too! I have two grandson that are 7. One turned 7 on the 23 (and my son's birthday, too!) Thank you for taking time in a busy schedule (you are a mom) to particpate in the hop and inspire us. I wouldn't be surprised if the grandboys wouldn't like the feel of a pom pillow, too.
