I haven’t actually tried using fabric just tissue paper.  So keep that in mind 🙂

I haven’t had any trouble with the tissue paper getting squished, mostly because if it does get a bit squished it is super easy to fluff back into place.

I do really love the look of the fabric poms, the only real downside I see happening is the ends fraying before the wedding, and it may be a bit more expensive than just tissue paper.

The amount of fabric would vary depending on the sizes that you wanted. I would just buy a yard of two or three colors and start experimenting.

I would love to see pictures and hear how this works if you try it!

 there’s a couple of different ways you can avoid fraying. Liquid stitch, a liquid glue or even tape can help with some of this until the day of. Liquid stitch is available in most hobby shops and even Joann’s for somewhere between $3-7 bed pending on size of the bottle. But you don’t need much and it dries quick. (most people use out for quilting or even per washing fabrics before starting a craft project)
