Yesterday this arrived with my mail.



A friend of mine has packed up some assorted craft supplies she was not going to use and sent them to me. (I have to say this is a foreign concept to me…supplies you KNOW you are not going to use??)


There are tiles, beads, grommets, pom poms, and some stickers. I wanted to make something with one of the items right away so I could show her I appreciated her generosity.  Although it only uses one of the pom poms, this little hat ornament was quickly made up.  I tried twice, but could not recreate the perfectly smooth top from the original instructions. It is also hard to hold a bundle of yarn perfectly straight and tie it without it getting lopsided when you are working alone.
