When my pom poms is not round...

I've seen a very simple smart way of making pom poms using a fork from Pinterest and thought I should give it a try...but sometime...the reality and the expectations may not be tally....this is how my pom poms turn out...this is actually my third try... and still very bad in 'shape''s not close to round at all... :P!

I feel so miserable for 'wasting' so much of my precious -last roll- of red yarn... and just before I was about to throw the 'scraps' into the dustbin... Mei Mei and Jojo came over...."Mom!  Can we have them?  We can use them for our cooking games...these look yummy...just like berries!"  Oh dear!  I really love my girls.... cause they just gave me an idea..."Let's mommy make them look even more yummy for you!   Just give me a few minutes" it what I did...

I trim the pom poms a little bit more...and add some green ribbon on the top

Then, sew on a few little greenish beads...
This is how it looks like...

A cute strawberry!!!

And where should I put them.... Well, after the girls finished 'cooking' them....I add some ribbon bows and a button (that's all I got...I should use a cute button...but I have none)...and here they are...

Till then
