DIY Pom Pom Sweater Refashion

DIY Pom Pom Sweater Refashion

"You’ve probably seen pom pom sweaters in crazy colors floating around Pinterest, but personally I think the look is more wearable and practical (for me) in neutral colors. This project is one of the easiest clothing refashions on Creative Fashion Blog, but also surprisingly time-consuming. For this tutorial, we’ll be hand-sewing each pom individually to the sweater so they stay intact long term. I gave myself about 20 minutes to make this sweater and ended up needing about an hour and a half. That’s OK though, because it turned out great and could still be done in an afternoon."

Sewn byHand



  1. Thread your Hand Needle in your black thread and tie a knot at the end so it doesn’t slip through your pom pom. I liked to tie mine at least twice so my poms were secure.

  2. Stick your needle through the center, most dense area of your pom and pull your thread through.

  3. Once your Pom is threaded, slide your needle through the top of your sweater and out the other side and pull the extra thread through.

  4. From the inside of the sweater, push your hand needle back through the top and be sure it pushes through another section of your pom pom.

  5. Repeat step 3 and 4 twice for each pom before knotting and cutting the extra thread.

  6. Keep adding poms until you like the overall look!
