Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Adult/High School

This title explains how to make felt and includes 25 projects for necklaces, bangles, brooches, etc. The book is filled with detailed, eye-catching color photographs that will aid beginners and inspire the more accomplished felters. Most of the projects have four-page spreads with step-by-step directions. For novices who don't want to make their own fabric, there are projects using ready-made material from craft shops as well as felt made from recycled knitted items. Many of the finished pieces are embellished with beads, buttons, and stitching, so a basic knowledge of sewing would be helpful.-Jane Ritter, Mill Valley School District, CA
