Gillian Harris has written 'complete feltmaking easy techniques and 25 great projects
' aimed at beginners to experts. There are plenty of easy to follow instructions, beautiful photos as well as a history of feltmaking. Patterns include flat felted pieces, three-d shapes, knitted for felting and needled felted instructions. The equipment list is extensive and gives the beginner a good foundation as well as giving some tidbits of info that expand that foundational knowledge.
The pieces are fun, extremely colorful and offer a wide variety ranging from handmade felt greeting cards, table runners, wall hanging, hair bow, purse, jewelery, hats, tea pot cozy, purses, tooth fairy pouch and lots more. The tooth fairy pouch is adorable and made even more so when you sprinkle a tiny bit of fairy dust glitter around the youngster's bed. In the morning, watch their eyes pop when they spy both pouch and "fairy dust".
It's a great book and you should consider adding it to your public, personal and guild libraries.
