DIY Beanie with Removable Pom Pom

November 23rd, 2014

Hi there! I hope you’ve had a great weekend, are you ready for the week? I have lots of new, great things to come- but let’s talk first about beanies. It was cold enough this weekend to wear it… So here it is.

Not that easy to find the right style, the right color and detail. I’ve always been wearing similar beanies, most of the time cable knit motive. Time to change, but if possible with a long lasting story. This year I was thinking about a true winter model -with fur pom pom on the top- that I could update with different colors or materials, like wool pom poms.

How it works best?

Take a simple beanie: I chose a camel color that match great with different tones. This one is from Zara current collection.

Then find a fur pom pom in a similar color and stitch a press stud button on it and on the beanie’s top. Well, it’s not only esthetic but also functional since you can’t wash fur items.

I like the idea of removable items using press studs! Don’t hesitate to use them for all different kind of details on your garments: a bow on a shirt’s collar, stones studs ornament detail on a tee…

Perfect for this time of the year as the festive season -Christmas & New Year’s Eve- is approaching…

nb. It seems that the coat I wear on the first picture will be soon turned into a ‘2 in 1’ coat project. More about it later!
