Whenever I finished my latest knitting project, I ended up with some leftover wool. To use it up, I made lots of pom-poms. Next, I tied them on to a piece of cross-stitch material, keeping the rows quite tight so it was completely covered. Finally, I sewed a piece of thermal material from the back of a pair of old curtains on to the back to make it non-slip. Now, I have a brightly-coloured pom-pom mat for my house.
