Shake Your Pom-Poms Blog Hop

Thanks to Madame Samm of Sew We Quilt and our cheerleader Thearica of Pig Tales and Quilts for bringing us this blog hop.

I saw that my 5-year old grandson had some pom-poms and Google eyes in his craft box and when I said I needed some pom-poms he told me that I could take some of his pom-poms and Google eyes. How sweet of him! He was so thrilled to see what I made with his pom-poms and Google eyes. Plus while I was babysitting  him last month, I dyed some batting with Kool-Aid and used the microwave oven at his house because I don't have a microwave oven. I wanted to use the microwave to speed up the dying process, but I could have placed it in the sun all day instead. 

 I used my Kool-Aid dyed batting to create these letters. I added embroidery stitches, beads, sequins and tiny pom-poms in the center of the "o's".

Those two with their Google eyes are just meant for each other.

I used one of Amy Bradley's lady from her Quilter's Yearbook and then made my own clown hat. I added a pom-pom for her nose, pom-pom necklace, pom-poms to her hat and one large pom-pom brooch. Google eyes made her look cross-eyed and I found the little bumble bee (with tiny Google eyes) and just had to put the bee on her nose as though she were looking at the bee and that why she looked cross-eyed.

I had so much fun making my quilt. I hope you enjoyed her and now here are the other quilters that are sharing their creations with you today too. I hope you hop on over and see what they have created for this blog hop. I know I can't wait to see what these ladies have created, so I'll be hopping over to see each blog too.

  1. This is BRILLIANT!!!! I love your little fly creation and the quilt. What a great idea to use kool-aid to colour your batting. I love that you used tiny pompoms to accentuate the words.
    Thanks so much for sharing.

  6. We all need a 5 year old to keep us with our projects from time to time, eh? And I know he was beaming that HE could help you. What a glorious project! It is fun or me so I can only imagine how much fun you did have making the quilt. What a wonderful fun quilt to have in your stash and pass down to your family, representative of your sense of humor. Thanks to you and your grandson for putting a smile on my face and I know there will be many more like-minded comments. You have certainly inspired me to do something with poms - at least shake them.
