Editorial Reviews

CraftGossip
Jayne has taken needle felting and fabric manipulation to a new level. She takes ordinary uninteresting objects and turns them into works of art by using needle felting and fiber to create stunning wearables and household items.
Library Journal
Textile designer Emerson's needle felt designs include both flat and three-dimensional objects, as well as embellishments for clothing. The author's background in fashion is apparent. While a few of the projects are frivolous (like the French press cozy), you won't find the usual cutesy felted animals here.
