Keep Refridgerated

Project #4 of Style School is to make a fabric pom pom necklace. Since I don't have one of those handy dandy pompom makers, I tried the cardboard way. Now I've got my trusty yoplait pompom maker!

Try number one wasn't so successful!

But I figured I would try more fabric and see how it turned out. Turns out that was the problem! They aren't perfect but they look a whole lot better than my first attempt! I also tried a little fabric and a lot of tulle on the second one. I really liked the way that one turned out. It reminds me of my loofah in my shower! :)

By the way the colorful one is My Little Pony fabric I scored at my thrift store! awesome!

On another note, Lindsay is having another awesome giveaway! The theme of this one is Sweet Treats. To enter you have to post a picture of your favorite treat somehow. My favorite treat is cupcakes! So of course I crocheted myself a cupcake. He isn't a very happy cupcake. He knows his fate! *nom nom nom* hahaha! :)

If you want to enter be sure to do so by Sunday January 17th!
