Can I buy these I am not crafty at all. Barbara Green.
Hi Barbara! This is a super simple project and I think you would be surprised at how crafty you can become just by following our templates and tutorials. We get a lot of people who tell us they’ve never crafted anything before and don’t consider themselves creative. Then once they start crafting with us they start to gain more confidence and see that they really can make all kinds of projects! Our website isn’t set up for individual pattern purchases, but you can sign up for a monthly membership to download a few projects and start crafting with us. It’s only $9.99 and you can always cancel if you find this isn’t the right membership for you.
What size are the pompom supposed to be? Could you please clarify that in the directions? My pompom makers come in four sizes: 3.5, 5.5, 7, and 9 cm. I would like to make the size that will best fit the SVG cutting file.
We used the “Small” which makes a 45mm size pom pom 🙂
