Draw the desired size circles on the back of the fur. Your pompom’s diameter will be about the same as the original circle.


Cut out the circle. Remove any extra fur from the edges.


Prepare a needle and thread. Double the thread to make it stronger. Tie a knot at the end.

Hand sew a basting stitch all the way around the edge of the circle. Once you have sewn all the way around, carefully pull on the thread to gather the edges. The faux fur will start to curl inward.
