Pom Pom Parrot

This sad looking pom pom bird is my Craft Book Club project for Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson. I'm calling it another craft fail because it doesn't look like a parrot and barely looks like a bird.

Here is the sad looking backside of the pom pom parrot. I'm quite disappointed with this pom pom, I'd give myself the benefit of this being my first attempt at a pom pom animal, but my second try was much worse. Making pom pom animals is probably not my thing, I may just have to admire the images of other people's work. (Do an image search of pom pom animals, some of them are AMAZING!)

Our next book for Craft Book Club is A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith. I've finished this book too (I'm on a book reading roll!) and plan on making a bank! I'm not sure if it will be the star bank described in the book or not, You'll have to check back towards the end of July to see what it looks like!


  1. Omg!!!!!! I love it so so so so much!!!! He came out awesome. 🤗🤗🤗🤗

  2. That is really cool Kelly. Totally looks like a bird! How did you do that?

    1. Thanks. I made a pompom, wrapping different colored yarns in sections, then started trimming it into shape.
