This is a so-called pompadour I made as a present for my friend’s birthday last week. It’s a little bag made out of a circle with pockets inside, which you can close by pulling the strings on one side.
I used the instructions on this website http://flodde-lodde.blogspot.com/2008/04/pompadour-kurz-anleitung-fr-einen.html but was not happy with the result and had to make some changes.
Because if you cut a circle, make a tube along the circumference, pull a string through and try to pull it shut, it will not close entirely! There’s too much fabric that gathers in too big a bulk to ever get it shut.
Most pompadours are therefore not made out of full circles. So, for a real pompadour, try different instructions, also it will use less fabric and be a more practical bag.
But I think the little pomadour looks cute anyways!!!
