I’m a believer in poms and their power to make anything cuter!
What’s not so cute is a wet fur pom when you need to run your beanie through the washing machine. Am I right? It’s what has kept me from attaching fur poms to my beanies. Until now…
Enter today’s super quick tutorial: How to make your fur pom removable!
Just make sure you have a hat that has a little hole in the top…most likely a knitted or crocheted hat. I added it to my Ashton Beanie, which is a cabled crochet beanie pattern. Click HERE to read more about it and grab a copy of the pattern for yourself!
You could even spice up a ready made hat!
- Fur Pom with elastic loop*
- Flat, 1 inch button
- Sewing needle
- Matching thread
- A hat or beanie with a hole in the top
- Crochet hook**
*I found my fur pom at Michaels on sale for 2/$3.
**A crochet hook is optional, but it sure makes pulling the elastic loop through the top of the hat so much easier.

Sew a button to the inside of your hat…I promise you won’t feel it if you get a nice, flat button. Then thread the fur pom’s elastic loop through the top. Wrap it around the button like you’re securing a pony tail. Be sure to wrap it tight. Nobody wants a floppy pom! 😉
Take it off like you’re taking out a pony tail when you need to give your hat a bath. Easy peasy.
I’m thinking of putting elastic loops on all my yarn poms too, so I can make them removable on all my hats. Or hey…change out different colors and styles to give your beanie a new look!
