Wow, so pretty! I was looking up tutorials for fabric poms earlier today -- I'd like to try it sometime.
ooh. I've never made them with fabric. Is it basically the same technique as with tissue paper? sounds lovely!
I found this tutorial: http://www.oncewed.com/24140/wedding-blog/diy-wedding/diy-fabric-poms/I would probably use thread and I would find something else for the centre -- not even sure where one can buy those paper laterns? I actually don't know how to make the tissue paper ones but there was a Martha Stewart kit at Michaels that was $30!
Those are so pretty! I might have to try them.They are a totally different technique than the tissue ones. I used Martha's instructions from here:http://www.marthastewartweddings.com/article/pom-poms-and-luminariasI used leftover tissue, using one sheet for each pom pom - cut into eight sections, rather than eight full sheets like Martha's big ones.I bet you could find lanterns like that in Chinatown.
