Perhaps you can just use a tiny nut and bolt?

Considering a nominal hourly wage, what do you suppose the cost of a set would be?

Honestly, the complete process for making EACH pom-pom is around 4 hours long. The big pom-pom for the bag will likely take longer on account of the threaded nut or attachment being rolled into the pom-pom, as well as the larger volume of material(say 5 hours). The Bag will take about 5 hours to knit by hand. Considering that Minimum wage is about $9 per hour, we get:

3 small pom-poms...........$108
1 big pom-pom..............$45
Bag........................$45
Material costs.............$25(ish)


Total: $223+price of buying the cups themselves(Say Sherwood cups, that's an extra $300 at least)

Making a set yourself would cost maybe $30+cups+around 24 hours of work.

If you're interested, when I'm done making my set, I MIGHT consider selling a set of pom-poms with or without the bag. I'd probably charge around $200 for everything minus the cups, and about $100 for a set of 3 small pom-poms. Not sure if I'd want to do it again even for money though. Auke van Dokkum sells a complete set including two cups for around $520. ITS A LOT OF WORK!!

YAY!!!!
