Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Traditional felt making requires considerable equipment and work space as well as a hefty time commitment. But what if you're on a budget, short on time, and want to make things out of felt without having to make the felt yourself? Grab some old wool sweaters, says author White, felt them quickly in your washing machine, and-voilà-you have felt that can be crafted into anything from pincushions to the cupcakes on the book's cover. White, who has worked for many years in the children's apparel industry, designed these 30-odd projects made from repurposed sweaters. Each includes step-by-step photo instructions, and most require a minimum of materials plus beginning to intermediate sewing skills. Generally recommended for public libraries.

    Loved It!

    I loved this book!! The designs are so cute and cool and in line with today's cutsie/indie craze. Easy instructions and tips for making felt from old sweaters - inspired me to take a trip to the thrift store for felt-worthy materials! Very cool and perfect for the beginning felter.

    It is a bright spot in the day

    It is a wonderful book and is a great way to recycle. A fun way to spend time with kids, too.
