And today my son and I decided to make a pompom chick.
The chick is made from:
- two pompoms - one 65mm, one 85mm in diameter
- 25g of yellow double knit yarn
- a pipe cleaner
- two buttons
- thread for sewing eyes
- card for the beak
- glue for sticking on the beak
We made the two pompoms, and left the thread that you tie them round the middle with long, and used the long threads to tie the two pompoms tightly togther.
We threaded the pipecleaner through the middle thread of the larger pompom for the legs and bent the ends into feet. Sew on eyes and glue on a beak.
The nest was made last week by my other son from instructions found here.
