Crafty bits: pom pom canvas

I used to absolutely love making pom poms as a kid, but I always remember them being such a faff with cardboard circles.  So much cutting out.  I discovered plastic pom pom makers about a year ago and, not to be dramatic, they have changed my life.  When the makers first arrived, I’ll admit I got a little over excited and used a whole ball of wool on various sized pom poms.  All in cream of course.  I didn’t know what to do with my new stock pile of fluffy little balls so for a while they sat in a bowl on my shelf.  They came in very handy at Christmas, helping to make my tree look a little less depressing.  As soon as the season was over they were out of a job again.

The answer then became very obvious.  Sew the pom poms on a canvas, duh.

Who doesn’t love wall art that’s a few inches thick?  It definitely fits my ‘style’ of colourless but textured perfectly!

I can’t wait to find the perfect spot in my new house and then move onto covering whatever else I can get my hands on in pom poms, maybe even adding a little colour in there!

Stay tuned!

Much love



A quick intro

Love From Us is a brand dedicated to providing perfect pampering outfits and lazy day pjs for you or a friend.  Basically lovely hand made nightwear for anyone who wants an excuse to treat themselves.

There is however more to life than making and wearing pjs (who knew?!)  This blog seemed like the perfect place to explore other things going on in the world.  Just to be clear, none of the serious depressing things that are going on, just the fun little things that can be discovered and created to make your own little world feel a little bit less depressing.

So if this sounds like your cup of tea, stay tuned for (hopefully) a great big selection of crafts, places, people and things that may not massive enhance your life but certainly can’t hurt anything!

Much love,
