Needle felting is an easy craft to pick up; crafters merely need a few colors of wool roving, a felting needle, and an appropriate working surface so they don't stab themselves or their furniture. In this quirky collection, author Chapin (The Handmade Marketplace: How To Sell Your Crafts Locally, Globally, and On-Line) and needle felter Wessel tackle needle-felted food. Most of the projects are small-scale and decorative, and Wessel's style is photorealistic, so readers can see the shine on the apple or the shimmer of cream in the cup of coffee. As the authors demonstrate, the projects are made from a few basic shapes, and the fun is in the detail, which is lovingly and thoroughly described. Sure, it's all adorable, but what would most people do with miniature needle-felted food? Fortunately, the authors answer that question with a selection of suggested projects that demonstrate how to transform these felted creations into pendants, pins, headbands, and even a paperweight. VERDICT These charming projects fit in with the trend for small, cute accessories, and the theme will be a welcome break for those who are tired of the same old felted animals.
