You will need:

• 4 x tulle fabric pieces, 4x50cm (1⅝x19¾”)

• 2 x shoe clips
• Button
• Glue gun
• Needle and thread

Step one:

Fold two tulle fabric pieces, widthways, and lay them on top of each other. Thread a needle and, leaving a long end at the start, sew a running stitch along one long edge.

Step two:

Pull the thread on both ends and gather the tulle. When you’re happy with the shape, tie the ends together.

Step three:

Stitch the button to the top of the pom-pom. Stitch the shoe clip neatly to the felt circle and then fix to the bottom using your glue gun. Repeat all the steps again to make the second shoe clip.
