Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

The current increase in popularity of crafting with felt is somewhat surprising because felt has been around since ancient times. These two books feature projects for jewelry and accessories using felt combined with beads and stitchery. Lifelong crafter Collings provides step-by-step projects for decorations and toys, while graphic designer Hill focuses on knitted and crocheted wire and fiber projects.
