Overview

Written for anyone with basic knitting skills, this guide to making, shrinking, and using knitted felt includes 20 stylish, contemporary projects for the modern crafter. Beautiful photographs, step-by-step instructions, and illustrations walk the first-time felter through all the processes. Projects include soft and comfortable felted tops, purses and tote bags, colorful embossed hats, jewelry and accessories, slippers, pillows, modern home accessories, and a strand of felted lights. While the techniques and tools are simple, the shapes, colors, and materials of these pieces give them a sophisticated, urban feel that brings felt into the 21st century.
