Crafty! Turn a crummy old T-shirt into pom pom decor

Pom poms are all the rage in baby nurseries. By "rage" we mean crafty interweb moms like myself are swooning over pom poms between clicks. I just don't want you to be confused that we're turning over cars in the streets with our adrenaline.

As you know, I'm spiffing up my nursery in anticipation of a new girl. My first choices in art work were dull, my pillows were drab and my comforter was too bright. I'm still working on most of that and have made a few splurges, so it's time to reign in the budget. Enter: pom poms made of old t-shirts!
I found the idea here and will show you my modifications below. Prepare to RAGE.

    Cool, thanks! We have like 200 t-shirts we'll never fit into again, so I may as well craft stuff, right?

    You don't have a recipe for turning t-shirts into Spanx, do you?

    I wish, and I actually wouldn't be surprised if I found one - people seem to be able to do anything with an old shirt!
