pink pom poms

I posted a photo of the kids snuggled under their quilts watching a little Sesame Street and was reminded that I had never shown this little quilt (er, blanket). It’s a current favorite, and even though I made it with Hazel in mind, I’ve probably gotten more use out of it so far (mostly because I’m not as tempted to eat the pom poms as she is!).

This Nani Iro woodblock pocho is my current favorite. It comes in a few colors, but a couple of those colors (this one and the black I think) are an even looser weave, and consequently even softer than the usual double gauze. I bought mine at Nido – having felt it in person, I just couldn’t leave the store without it.

Once upon a time I saw a photo of a quilt with pom poms on pinterest, and the image had sort of stuck in my head, so I decided to try it out with this fabric. I paired it some hot pink pom poms and a pink shot cotton. It does have batting in the center, but while I planned on hand quilting it, I decided I liked it as it was, so I suppose technically it’s not a quilt – three layers, yes, but no quilting… so no go? Either way, it’s super soft and fun with those pink pom poms. And once Hazel stops trying to eat them all, I’ll give it back to her…maybe…

    So pretty! I think you should hold it together somehow, though or it may not hold up. What about some hot pink tying in each of the white dots!?

    They look so cozy with their “blankie” watching Sesame Street…lol. Adorable. It does look very soft, almost like fleece. That last pic of Hazel…oh, my! My first morning smile. 8-)

    I am in love with Hazel! Every time you post a photo my heart melts. Such a little pixie. I do love the quilt too. I think the three layes constitutes a quilt. :)

    Beautiful quilt. I’ve thought about trying it but am put off by the trickiness of sewing in the pompom tape. Have you got any tips on how to do this? Thx

    Beautiful baby ! She has gorgeous hair and adorable pink cheeks that match the sweet blanket. Thanks for posting this idea. I can’t wait to get my hands on some Pom Pom tape!

    I sewed pompoms on pillows and some fell out.
    It’s lovely but I am worried about how it will hold up. Esp in the wash.

    Have you seen them fall/get pulled out? Or perhaps there are better stronger pom poms out there…?
