Soft Toy - Pompon Bear

Materials Required
  • Double Knit Wool
  • A rod of diameter 1/2 inch (Approx) and length 12" approx.
  • A big needle
  • Eyes, Nose
  • Fevi Bond.
The Pom Pon Bear consists of several wool balls (of various sizes) joined together appropriately to make the bear. So first lets see how to make the balls. The basic procedure to make the balls is the same.
  1. First take four strands of the wool, each of approx 12" in length.
  2. Now keep the 4 strands along the length of the rod.
  3. Now using the wool ball wind it over the 4 strands and rod
  4. After completing a single layer repeat the process over and over again
For a normal size Pom Pon:
  • Body  will have 12-14  windings.
  • Legs   will have 09- 10 windings.
  • Hands will have 08 windings.
  • Head  will have 10  windings.
  • Ears    will have 06  windings.
  • Snout  will have 06  windings. 
  • Tail will have 06 winding.
 5. After completing the required windings, slide off the wool. Now using the 4 strands tie a knot which brings the two ends of the windings together.
  6. Now cut off the folded edges neatly. After this, roll the piece between your palms and make it into a small ball. Similarly make the rest of the balls.
7. Join the head and the body using the 2 strands, by tying a knot.
8. Next Join the hands, legs, ears and snout accordingly using needle and wool.
9. Stick the eyes and nose to complete the Bear. You can also tie a bow around its neck.

To make a bigger bear, you can increase the windings accordingly.
