I Felt Awesome by Moxie is a needle felting book that absolutely lives up to it's title.
In the middle of the holiday rush to get projects done in time, this book is very distracting. The projects are whimsical and delightfully unexpected. There is a lot of gorgeous sculpting in the needle felting community. This book has amazing projects that will make you laugh out loud and really inspire you to felt.
It starts with a tools list that explains the various tools. Including the fact that if you're needle felting, you need adhesive bandages. And safety tips so hopefully you won't need them as often. Materials list, and 25 pages on the techniques of needle felting so even absolute beginners can start with this book.
First chapter is wearables. May the laughter begin. Starting with a martini inspired necklace of olives with pimentos*, it just gets even more fun from there. Imagine a soft sculptured spiked wrist band. The juxtaposition of soft and spikey just thrills me.The perfect accessory for the crafty punk. I could really do this all day, describing all my favorite projects, but that will be a really really long review.So I'm going to try and narrow it down a lot.
The Fat Head barrettes are a great starter project or a project for an evening of crafting with friends. It starts with commercial felt with added embellishments.
The Playables are incredibly clever. The author uses magnets to create a soft sculpted Potato Head doll and if that's not cute enough, a Katamari Damacy ball that can pick up paper clips and such from your desk. Desk bowling and the cutest little emo doll I've ever seen are my other favorites from this chapter.
In Form Not Function, it gets to more of what I've come to expect from needle felting. Sculpture just for it's own sake. A faux neon sign, a cute houseplant with a hot dog hanging from it, an adorable mobile based on warning labels.
If you have had an interest in needle felting, I recommend this book happily.

Here's a book full of pure joy. I looked pretty much like the smiley dude on the cover the whole time I was reading it. Moxie knows how to get you as excited as she is about the thrill of felting. You couldn't ask for a better introduction to this craft! POKE POKE POKE

This is quite possibly the funniest craft tutorial book ever written. If you want to learn how to needle felt - great - it's great for that too. But if you also just read the text of the tutorials - hilarious. Love it! I'm gonna make everything in here!

I am the proud owner of over a dozen MadebyMoxie finger puppets and two way cool rings. When I heard a book was in the works, and soon to be released I was so excited! THIS BOOK ROCKS!!! It exceeded my expectations. This is a fun book! Here is what I liked ... Very, very informative as to the tools and instruction. (It is like Moxie is right there walking you through everything.) The tone is TOTAL humor! (You can tell this gal loves what she does.) The projects are varied enough that there is something for everyone. PLUS each project shows a different process and gives more tips. All of this is done with bold, colorful photos, and tons of energy. The title of the book really says it perfectly ... Tips and Tricks ... she has a ton of them. I also liked the resources listed at the end of the book. When you get YOUR copy make sure you don't miss the bottom of page 142. Thanks Moxie! I "felt" awesome reading your book! When is the next awesome book coming out! MORE PROJECTS!

My girlfriend and I were at Maker's Faire in San Mateo, CA when we saw Moxie do a presentation/demo on techniques of felting. I was like, felting...WTF is felting?

In short, it is awesome. Just as awesome as this book we came across who was also written by Moxie.

144 pages of colorful and well thought out instructions and tips of felting that is suitable for all ages. One might ask, why buy something for a process that is easy? The obvious answer is why not, but a more logical one would be that there are methods that sometimes cannot be picked up intuitively. Additionally, when dealing with expensive materials, who wants to screw up, right?

I wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone who has any bit of imagination and time to felt away by yourself or with friends.

I love this book. It has lots of tips with easy to follow instructions. I've been felting for over 3 years and this book had some suggestions that I hadn't thought of and were really helpful. Moxie has even included ways to felt around hard objects. Plus there's some really great projects. The sense of play and humor are another great plus. I hope she writes more!

I've been looking for a book to get me started on felting. The videos on youtube just weren't doing it for me. This book took me from, "whaaaaaaa?" to "ooooohhhhh, I get it now" in a matter of minutes. Since everyone learns differently, I suggest using the 'search this book' feature and see if Moxie gets through to you like she did for me. I don't know that I would do the projects in this book (although the voodoo doll earrings are pretty danged cool), but it was fun seeing what someone who thinks outside of the traditional has done with felt. Warning: This is a highly addictive craft! You've been warned ;)

The art and projects in this book are awesome. I'm not a needle felter myself, but that didn't matter - Moxie's clear, engaging writing and dark, smart wit kept me reading, and I loved the layout and photos. I highly recommend this to anyone who needs more zombie sheep finger puppets in her life :).
