How to add a removable pom to your hat:

  1. Turn the hat inside out.
  2. Using yarn + a needle (or needle and thread) sew button to the top most (crown) of the hat, making sure the button is up in the inside of the hat.
  3. Weave in any ends that remain.
  4. Turn the hat right side out
  5. Feed the elastic loop that is attached to the pom pom through the top of the hat.
  6. Wrap loop several times around the button, taking care to make it extra snug to keep it from flopping around.
  7. However, if the pom is a little floppy, simple wrap the loop around button several more times, you may need to pull it ver.
  8. All done and ready to wear!

Note: Faux fur poms should never go into the dryer.  Please follow the manufacturer’s instructions for care and cleaning of your pom pom.
