INSTRUCTIONS

 

 

 

Body Pompom (see template on page 2)
1. Print out 6" [15 cm] template for each disc (make 2 discs). Glue to cardboard. Allow to dry, then cut out along solid and dashed lines.

2. Using matching yarn, approx 10" [25.5 cm] long, place between the 2 discs around center cut out and hold discs together.

3. Holding 2 strands together, wrap MC yarn around the cardboard template 200 times. Break yarn.

4. Pull yarn between the 2 discs and tie very tightly in center.

5. Slip scissors between the 2 discs and cut the wrapped yarn all around the circle.

6. Pull the discs from the yarn. Fluff and lightly trim pompom so it is even but a little floppy for Large Creature. For Small Creature, trim pompom until Body is smaller and more dense.

Eye Pompoms (make 2) (see templates on page 2)
1. Print out 2" [5 cm] template for each disc (make 2 discs). Glue to cardboard. Allow to dry, then cut out along solid and dashed lines.

2. Using matching yarn, approx 8" [20.5 cm] long, place between the 2 discs around center cut out and hold discs together.

3a. For Large Creature: With B, wrap yarn around template 30 times. (See Diagrams on page 2)

3b. With MC, wrap 80 times, starting on right side of B and wrapping over top of B evenly to the other side.

3c. With A, wrap 150 times from one side of template opening to the other making sure to cover MC wraps.

3a. For Small Creature: With B wrap 40 times. (See Diagrams on page 3)

3b. With A, starting at one side template opening and ending at the other side wrap 180 times making sure to cover B.

4. Pull yarn between the 2 discs and tie very tightly in center.

5. Slip scissors between the 2 discs and cut the wrapped yarn all around the circle.

6. Pull the discs from the yarn. Lightly trim Contrast A, just to make even. Trim MC to be 1/4" [6 mm] shorter than Contrast A.
For Large Creature, trim Contrast B very short to make it smooth, round and dense.

7. Glue googly eye to center of each eye.

FINISHING
Put one end of pipe cleaner through eye of tapestry needle and bend pipe cleaner to secure. Poke needle through center of Body pompom from the side and pull through so that one half of pipe cleaner is on each side of Body. Bend pipe cleaner in half from the middle. Attach one eye to each end of pipe cleaner, using tapestry needle.

Creature Feet (see templates on pages 3 and 4)
Print out Base Template and cut along solid line. Place template on felt or construction paper and using felt-tipped marker, trace the outline of the base. Cut along traced line.
