  • 1 Measure and cut bandana strips

    Iron bandanas. Measure and cut 4" x 22" bandana strips for the poms and 1/2" x 22" strips for the pens.

  • 2 Fold pom pom strips

    Fold the pom pom strip in half lengthwise so it measures 2" x 22". Iron to crease the fold. Fold it in half widthwise so it measures 2" x 11".

  • 3 Cut fringe & unfold

    Cut 1/4" fringe along the bandana on the cut side and unfold so it measures 2" x 22".

  • 4 Baste stitch length

    Thread a needle and baste stitch the entire length just above the folded edge.

  • 5 Slide, bunch & tie

    Slide and bunch the bandana along the thread to form the pom. Tie thread ends securely.

  • 6 Wrap pen or pencil

    Wrap pen or pencil with the thin strip of bandana. Glue the ends in place.

  • 7 Glue on pom

    Glue the bandana pom to the end of the pen or pencil.
