Feltmaking: Fabulous Wearables, Jewelry and Home Accents (Weekend Crafter Series)

Overview

It’s amazing that such simple materials—wool, soap, hot water—can result in fabric as infinitely varied in form and color as felt. The key is playful experimentation and this creative guide, which reveals exactly which wools to use, the effects of using hard versus soft water, and how to agitate the wool. Twenty colorful projects range from an inviting rug to a rolled Spiral Bracelet to slippers.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The "Weekend Crafter" series is exactly that-a series of books for people interested in learning a new craft without necessarily devoting their lives to it. Hagen has taught felt making in the United States and Europe, and her hand-felted wool is in many private and museum collections. Here she takes the reader step by step through the process of hand felt making. Closeup color photos illustrate each step in making beginner's felt projects such as solid felt balls and the basic flat felt needed for wearable felt pieces. Projects of note include an ambitious, life-size stuffed cat wearing a necklace of felted beads, small felted bags and bracelets, and warm felt slippers. Books on crafts like felt making, which requires supplies like Merino wool sliver not available at your local craft store, cry out for lists of suppliers. It appears that the publisher has decided to omit such lists from many of its titles and to make them available on its web site instead-a good idea because the lists can be kept up-to-date more easily. Unfortunately, at press time, the list for this book was not yet available on the Lark web site. The price is right for this collection of colorful felt projects. Recommended for public libraries.
