The most fabulous and original making treats in store for you
Dragonolia Shop 1929

Visit our newest section, The Dragonry, and read extracts from the life story of Kaptin Scarlet, the bold adventurer and dragon hunter, as you easily recreate some of the most gorgeous models that will bring your dragon’s world alive.
. . . Of course, everyone knows that by the 1920s there was a Dragonry in almost every big city, but the days of shops like the one shown in this rare picture were already numbered, as the supply of dragon materials dried up with first the protection and then the inevitable extinction of these strange and beautiful beasts.
. . . Now there are no dragonries left on the high street, but don't worry, we are keeping the myth of the dragon alive with some absolutely beautiful projects specially designed for you, in our very own online Dragonry (details here).

Push the tip of a pair of scissors into the wool and between the discs inside and cut round the rim. step 5 of how to make a pompom, tie off the wool

Tie a few lengths of wool round the pompom bundle between the cardboard discs and then remove the discs by slipping them off the wool or cutting them.

step 6 of how to make a pompom, the finished pompom That's it. It couldn't be much simpler, but it is only the start. Both boys and girls love making pompoms and dadcando's projects have easy to follow instructions and the beautifully designed printed image patterns will make sure that your pompom looks fabulous as well as being something really wacky and memorable, and they’re all so quick and easy to do.
