Discover the amazing Pompomania and win a copy!

Did you love spending rainy days making pompoms at home as a child? If so, then maybe it is time to step up your pompom game and rediscover just how fun they can be! Christine Leech’s new book Pompomania is guaranteed to get you all obsessed about them again.

Christine Leech is an absolute expert in anything craftsy! She has a blog called “Sew Yeah” and now writes a craft feature for LoveKnitting. Check out her cute pompom bunny tutorial for us. She has also written multiple books about sewing, felting, printing and scissor crafts! So when we heard that she is writing a book about pompom-making we were instantly sold!

Peek a Pom! @sewyeah’s new book is available at @quadrillecraft #PomPom #PomPomMania #LoveKnitting @smashboxcosmetics

Her book Pompomania came out a few weeks ago and we were lucky enough to be invited to her VIP book launch at Smashbox Cosmetics London where we were treated to everything a girl’s heart could desire – make-up, sweets, cheeky cocktails, and of course pompoms!

The book features over 20 different types of pompoms, with truly unique ideas and combinations. The instructions are easy to follow thanks to the step-by-step photos and clear instructions. All you need is a pompom-maker, some yarn and some sharp scissors and off you go!

What a perfect way to spend a Wednesday night. We had a great time making a couple of pompoms each and even managed the cute ones with heart-shapes on them. The book sure has something for everybody, with a pompom-bonsai tree, smiley-faces, a mini pompomeranian puppy, or even a spooky Mexican Day of the Dead skull creation.

WIN A COPY OF POMPOMANIA!

Try your luck at our “Spot the difference!” game.
Just find the differences between the two images below and let us know in the comments how many you found.
We will pick two winners to receive a copy of Pompomania. The game ends on the 15th of April 2016.
Good luck!

    There are 6 differences. I love the look of the book. I haven’t made pompoms for years so would love to try again ?

  49. elpherlol says:

    It took me awhile but spotted just six differences. Following a stroke I was started on simple crafts by my physiotherapist and these included working with yarns. Many knitters struggle after events like this but I found I could crochet because it didn’t involve so much movement with my left arm. Funnily enough, we were also shown Pom Pom making because learning to wind involves many hand/eye skills and, when successful, ending up with a beautiful Pom Pom too! I’ve stumbled across this book today, another lucky co-incidence, as didn’t realise that you can be so creative by making and using Pom Poms. I just love the li cornice all sorts so want to start with them but may be running before I can walk. Whether lucky or not, it’s good to learn that Pom Poms aren’t just for hats! Wishing everyone the best of luck, x

    I found six. I have just bought some pom pom makers but haven’t started yet due to lack of pattern inspiration, although I plan to make a big ball for my new grandson. I think this book might be the answer!
