Shake Your PomPoms ....


Can you see my pompoms......
I had to think for  a little while  and ponder what would I like to make for this hop......
When I think of pompoms I think of the slippers I would wear as a child that someone would have knit for me and then the ones I would knit later on. But I knew that this should be made with fabric and quilted of course.
Sew what to do .....
                              Make a cute spring time tote....
                                                 Sew I made up a little pattern using some Daises with little pompoms centers. The teeniest pompoms I have ever made.
 I have a before and after pictures of the tote with the pompoms.


before


the Daisy's are smiling
 


I really like how the Daises look after they have the pompoms added. Just adds a little cuteness to them, and some fun too.Almost like they are smiling.

I'm Ready to go Shopping, are you??

 Thank you for stopping by my hop today. Be sure to follow along and check out the other blogs to see how everyone else shakes their Pompoms!!

A special thanks to Mdm Samm and Thearica..... for putting this hop together and keeping us in a creative loop all year long. As well as some great give aways as well. Theraica has some Pompom makers in her shop sew stop by if you are sew inclined to give some of the ideas share a try.

To show my thanks I would like to have a little give away myself with the pattern for this little tote ( almost ready to print) and a couple other goodies . I will draw an extra winner this hop as this hop is happening around my birthday. Just leave a comment and let me know that you want to be included and good luck to you all.
I will try to reply to all your comments as I do read them all but I know that sometimes I do not have enough time to reply to each and every one.  I just love how we all connect through the blog hops.

Enjoy the hop ....

  89. The bag is adorable. My SIL loves daisies. I just finished quilts for her twin grandchildren who were born in September. Her granddaughter has her name Lynn as one of her name. So I embroider a few daisies on the quilt label and mentioned in the label that one of my first memories of her grandmother is her love of daisies. Happy birthday! Yesterday (the 23rd) was my son's birthday and my daughter's older son's birthday. We had great fun with the phone call between the guys. My son has a son who is just six months older than his sister's son. My son is very playful and you could hear the playfulness in his voice.
    Thank you for taking time to make a lovely bag. I've already made one (in my head).
