Time to Shake My Pom Poms!!!

 
I'm so excited to be able to participate in this blog hop and want to take a min to give a big cheer to Madame Samm who comes up with these great blog-hop themes and to Thearica for being our Cheer Leader Captain for this super fun hop. Thanks so much ladies for all the work you have put into this for us!!!
 
My projects started out very simply. My first thought when deciding on what I should put a 'pom pom' on was that my dd had a shirt that had originally had a bright orange pom pom on it. She loved the shirt, but not that bright orange. So I went searching for the right color yarn to match the shirt and proceeded to 'fix' it for her. I think it looks just about right now:) 

 
After this all I could think about was bunny tails:) So I went searching on Pinterest and found a couple of projects that I thought I could tackle.  First I found these super cute crochet bunnies and even though my crochet skills are pretty basic, I was able to whip up these sweet little bunnies...
 
 
The only thing I changed was that instead of crocheting a tail on them, I made pom poms for tails:)
 
 
But I wasn't done, I needed more bunnies!!! So I found these really cute bunny hand puppets as well.
I made a couple small changes from the pattern, but pretty much kept them the same. They have felt pom pom tails:)  

 
If you are interested in making either of these projects, please follow the links I provided.
 
 
And here are the links to all of today's Blog Hop Cheerleaders....

I love the hand puppet pattern and the crochet bunnies. That is a great idea for using pompoms for the tails. I think that is one I will definitely use.
Thanks so much for sharing.
