2. Thread the needle, and bring it up through the inside top center of the hat; catch the center of the pom pom with each stitch. Pull thread tight so the pom-pom is secure. Do this 5 to 7 times to secure the pom pom to the center of the hat. Bring the needle through the underside of the hat, and tie off the thread.
