I have a tongue in cheek poster on the wall in my office, given to me by my extremely respectful workmates. I was undertaking a crochet class at the time, and I came back to work the morning after the first class to find this taped to my monitor:
So I kept it. I’m proud of who I am. I go to a coffee shop and do nanna crafts with friends. You wanna go?
I didn’t think so.
Since starting the blog I’ve learned some cool stuff and met some amazing people. I’ve even done some things I never thought I’d do, like attending a cooking class and making a YouTube video.
And I’ve made some amazing friends. Don’t laugh, I’ve got a crochet hook in my bag and I’m not afraid to use it.
One of those friends, Adelle from Where The Styled Things Are, gave me the idea for this project. She’s the nice-girl of the fashion blogging world. She’s always ready to share, with never a bad word to say about anyone.
She’s the creator of the Pretty Little Package project, aimed at stamping out online bullying, and she runs the Perth WA Bloggers Facebook page in an effort to unite Perth bloggers together.
See, she’s so nice. I sometimes wonder why she’s friends with me?
She saw my pom poms on another project and said to me, ‘You should put them in a headband, like Emily Muco!’.
And I said ‘Ok, but you have to model them!’
I used the pom pom creating method I tested in ‘Forking Pom Poms’ and made an assortment of pom poms in green (to imitate the leaves) and pink (to match the flowers). I trimmed the green ones lower than the pink so they didn’t overwhelm the flowers.
