About this Project

Mom always said to steer clear of the "ruff" crowd, but we just couldn't stay away from these adorable pompom puppies! Make a spotted Dalmatian and blue-eyed Husky using yarn, felt and a Clover Pom Pom Maker.

    Dalmatian

    1st half: Wrap a small section of black (about 5-6 times) just right of center. Wrap a section of white to the left of the black to create the bridge of the nose (the thickness will determine how far apart the puppy's eyes are). In the center of white, wrap a small thin section of black (about 4 times) to create eyes. Cover everything with a layer of white. For remainder of half, wrap white with random spots of black then close.

    2nd half: Wrap entire half in white with random spots of black, then close. Cut down channel and tie pompom tightly. Remove from maker.

    Trim to create round pompom shape. Gently hold the nose and a bit of the white yarn surrounding it in one hand and trim around gathered area to create the muzzle. Trim down the eyes, leaving the bridge of the nose slightly higher. Trim to resemble shape of Dalmatian head until satisfied.

    Cut out two felt ears and glue onto pompom.
