Rainbow Pom Pom Tote Bag – Materials:

Blank Canvas Tote

Felt in Assorted Colors

– Yarn

Fabric Glue

Pom Pom Maker

Step 1. Make four pom poms using any color yarn (preferably higher quality yard for a better finish) and a pompom maker. You can use a cardboard cut out in a semi -circle or a store bought pompom maker.

Step 2. Arrange your felt colors and cut out each arc for the different color section of the rainbow. Start with the largest arc and work towards the center. Measure to make sure each arc fits underneath the larger arch.

Step 3. Once you have all the pieces made arrange them on the bag and use the fabric glue to secure on to the bag. For the rainbow, start with the largest arc and work inwards to the smallest arc.

Step 4. Then attach the chunky “cloud” pom poms to the bottom of the arc. You can glue on the pom poms and secure with a needle and thread. I used this fabric glue.

Enjoy your new Rainbow Pom Pom Tote! Wouldn’t it be fun to make one for the kids and include some rainbow rocks in them? Check out more fun rainbow ideas here and here!
