project using pom pom technique
I've learned pom pom technique from my Grandma when I was only 4 years old. I've never modified the technique, because it works and it is very sentimental to me. Now, I am teaching my little daughter how to make things and I hope this little project with how-to's could be helpful for you as well. Take it away
