Saltire pom poms

We’re a wee bit distracted today in Scotland! Yesterday I joked on twitter and facebook that if someone didn’t come up with a topic for Technique Thursday I’d end up doing a tutorial for Saltire pom poms. There were some excellent suggestions and I’ve put them on our list for the future (and since many ideas were things I’ve already covered you can always see the full list here, or follow my TT pinboard). The thing is, enough people asked if Scottish flag pom poms were possible, and I was curious and distracted enough to try. So here it is — a tutorial for saltire pom poms. 

The pom pom makers that split into two halfs work best (you can make a cardboard version too!)

This tutorial for alphabet pom poms is amazing and was super helpful for these. I don’t think I’ll ever get mine quite that neat! 

After filling in the centre blue triangle (make sure it’s thicker in the middle) continue wrapping blue allover until that half is full. Repeat on the other side of the pom pom maker. 

Cut, tie and stick to hats, bicycles or the baby!

Babies make an excellent distraction from politics, and they love pom poms but please don't let them play with them without close supervision!

I’m off to go cast my vote, and I will be voting for an independent Scotland. Not because, silly pom poms aside, I’m enthusiastically nationalist and patriotic, but because I want to live in a country where my vote matters and where we focus on a better future for everyone rather than invading other countries. However you’re voting, or whether you’re watching curiously from afar (or have no idea what I’m on about! – and a more serious summary), it’s been amazing to see the levels of engagement this has generated. I do hope we’ll see that continue.
