You do not have to be a knitter or even a conventional felt maker to create fashionable felted attire-you can simply recycle old wool garments, shrink them, cut them, then sew them into beautiful and useful repurposed garments and accessories. Bieber (The Portable Crafter) takes readers through the basics, including finding the right preknit sweater, shrinking it in the washing machine, dyeing the felt with powdered drink mix, and embellishing it with needle felting. A great variety of projects then illustrates what can be made with this technique (e.g., totes, hats, scarves, mittens-even children's toys). The projects can serve as inspiration or be followed step by step. Highly recommended for public libraries.
