9781782213468: Pompom Christmas (Twenty to Make)

Building on the pompom magic of Alistair Macdonald’s previous book, this new book seeks to take pompoms to another level altogether with a Christmas theme. It covers a whole range of Christmas decorations and plenty of Christmas characters too. From Rudolph with his red nose, Santa and Mrs Claus, and a ‘frosty’ snowman gift topper to an ingenious bauble, a luxuriant snowflake and a gorgeous festive wreath, there are projects that will appeal to everyone. Some projects, such as the garland, are small and very quick to make; others such as the festive wreath, are a more impressive size and a little more involved, but all can be accomplished by novice and expert pom-pommers alike! Pompoms are quick and easy to make, and all the designs can be made either with plastic pompom makers, or in the traditional way using cardboard templates. These beautiful projects will appeal to adults of all abilities, and are a great way of engaging children in craft-making. All the projects can be made with inexpensive yarn, and are a great way of using up scraps in your yarn stash and fabric oddments. With such a variety of lovely projects to choose from, but there is sure to be something for everyone in this great little book.

About the Author:

Alistair MacDonald studied fashion design at Central St Martins School of Art and Design in London and set up his own womenswear label, House of Alistair, in 2008. Working from his own studio in London, Alistair now works on a wide variety of projects including high fashion, film costume and a very successful haberdashery and giftware collection available at houseofalistair.com. Gifted with a highly creative imagination, Alistair is known for his fun, quirky and stylish creations.

Review:

December 2015 Now here's a little book bursting at the seams with great ideas for Christmas - all made from the humble pompom. These projects have oodles of charm and are easy to make, so ask the children to join in the fun too- you'll be able to create a whole host of Christmas characters -including Santa and Rudolph- and decorations. All designs are easy to follow and can be made using the traditional cardboard ring method or a modern, plastic, pompom maker. So pick up your yarn and get making. * Love to Make * If you have yet to see any of the books in the Twenty to Make series from Search Press, we urge you to pop to your local bookshop and see what you've been missing. These little books of crafting magic are a great addition to anyone's book shelf, with an accessible price point too. Pompom Christmas is exactly what it says on the cover, 20 pompom projects for Christmas. The fabulous Santa Claus on the front cover is a great indication of what's to come. For those of us that haven't made a pompon since national school, Alistair has provided instructions to make them at the beginning of the book, using either the traditional cardboard method or the not so traditional plastic pompom makers (which I can't praise enough). Pompoms are a great source of amusement for young and old alike, children can happily get involved in the creative process. As we've already mentioned, the Santa Claus is fantastic and our other favourites are the angel, Christmas pudding and Mrs Claus is a cutie too. The Pompom Party Glass Markers would be a welcome addition to any gathering, all year round. We'd recommend the book to for all ages and abilities. Some of the little people might need a bit of help, but they'll love it none the less. * Olann and -http://olannand.ie/book-reviews/ * Ideal as cheerful decorations or mini gifts, these designs can be made using a pom-pom set or cardboard templates and oddments. With 20 lovely projects from Santa and Rudolph to garlands and snowflakes, there's something for everyone in this great little book. * Machine Knitting Monthly * Deck the halls with pompoms in this follow-up to the previous Twenty To Make Fabulous Pompoms (also reviewed on myshelf.com). Make decorations for tree, table, walls and more using just leftover yarn, pipe cleaners (aka chenilles) and those cardboard circles. For those unfamiliar with making pompoms, there are two pages showing how to use both the traditional card circles and the modern pompom makers. The rest of the book is filled with twenty projects, each featuring a page-sized photograph of the finished item displayed, a smaller picture of it on its own, instructions, and what you need. This includes tools as well as materials, always a good touch so you have everything you need before you start. The instructions are very detailed and can look daunting beside a fairly simple model, but include everything for foolproof crafting. Projects include a robin, snowman, Santa and Mrs Claus, bunting, a Christmas tree, stocking, party glass markers, napkin ties etc. All use inexpensive items, many of which crafters might have left over from other projects and show that you can do a lot with a little. Children and adults will both have a ball (or perhaps a bauble) making their holiday decoration personal with this wee book. * Rachel Hyde - Myshelf.com *
