Overview

Felt to Stitch: Creative Felting for Textile Artists by Sheila Smith

Versatile and easy to make, felt provides an ideal base for surface embellishment. This inspirational guide explores the possibilities, from creating felt from scratch to selecting unusual dye combinations and producing three-dimensional pieces. Using the sample projects that illustrate the main techniques, both beginning and advanced fiber artists will soon be experimenting with color, line, shape, pattern, and texture. Special sections on Japanese Shibori (knotting and dyeing the surface) and Nuno (combining felt with other materials to create rich and interesting fabric surfaces) make this a must-have for all fiber artists.
