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.
