I can’t sew. Like, really, I’m horrible at it. I like to say I can sew a straight line, but even that is a stretch. I just don’t have the patience for it and you know I’m the laziest DIY-er ever. So, the easy no sew pom pom quilt was born!
This is the easiest DIY on the history of the planet, and I’m sure some of you will think I’m nuts. I really loved the PB Teen pom pom quilts but I didn’t want to buy one. I already splurged on a duvet cover and pillow from PB for my girlie’s big girl room.
So here we go –
Step 1 – Get yourself a white quilt. I actually just used the backside of my daughters old bedding.
Step 2 – Make yourself a big ole pile of pom pom’s (I think I used 26). I followed this great tutorial here from Kelly at Eclectically Vintage.
Step 3 – Space them out on your quilt, mine are about 1 ft apart. I originally was going to use pink pom pom’s but switched to white ones. I think this photo is easier to see the spacing though. Oh, and being the laziest DIY-er ever I only did half the quilt since only half shows when it is folded over, I couldn’t handle one more stinking pom pom! (you know, until I decided they should be white and had to make 26 more…)
Step 4 – This is where you might think I’m nuts…I just safety pinned them on. I was thinking if I sew these on how am I going to wash this thing without them falling apart? Ok, I was also thinking there is no way I’m hand sewing all these things on either…but this way if I need to wash it I can just take the pom pom’s off, wash it, and pop them back on.
Some of you are probably thinking, won’t your daughter get poked by these things if they come undone? Nope, you can see that this blanket just sits on the end of her bed…
and the blanket is folded over so the safety pins are tucked safely inside the quilt. Actually, we take this off and fold it up in the corner of her room at night, so I think she is safe anyways.
Now if I could just get this guy to leave them alone…
