Aimed at crafters of all abilities, this beautiful book shows you how to make a variety of decorative and practical items using the wet felting technique.

Starting with a thorough techniques section including clear step-by-step photographs and instructions, author Lisa Marie Olsen takes you through techniques such as flat felting, using a 'resist', creating patterns on flat felted pieces and working round a 3D mold.

She then shows you how to make 12 lovely projects including matching mother and baby slippers, a handbag, a tea cosy, a shadow frame and a teapot. Lisa's work is strongly influenced by her love of vintage style and classic fairy tales, hence the title of the book Felt Wonderland perfectly sums up the style of this book. She also includes other techniques such as needle felting, hand stitching, embroidery and applique to further embellish the projects. The projects can be followed exactly but also provide you with the inspiration to let your creativity loose and customize them to your own style.
