Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Adult/High School—This title explains how to make felt and includes 25 projects for necklaces, bangles, brooches, etc. The book is filled with detailed, eye-catching color photographs that will aid beginners and inspire the more accomplished felters. Most of the projects have four-page spreads with step-by-step directions. For novices who don't want to make their own fabric, there are projects using ready-made material from craft shops as well as felt made from recycled knitted items. Many of the finished pieces are embellished with beads, buttons, and stitching, so a basic knowledge of sewing would be helpful.—Jane Ritter, Mill Valley School District, CA

From Booklist

Crafters will have an easy time using felt in a rather nontraditional application—for jewelry—in this easy-to-follow manual. Helpful for those who want to make their own felt as well as for those who prefer to use prefabricated felt (even if from old wool clothing), the book presents the steps for each project with clear directions and illustrations. Headpieces, necklaces, pins, scarves, and even earrings are some of the pieces featured here. The styles range from conservative and traditional brooches to dramatic and contemporary bracelets. Although the look of felt jewelry might not be for everyone, this helpful guide will aid crafters to expand their felting repertoire. --Mary Frances Wilkens

I recently purchased this book, expecting like usual, to only like one or two of the projects. Well, I was pleasantly surprised! The directions are very clear and accurate, and the projects have a nice range of type, difficulty, and materials used. The only (small) downside I found was that some of the projects require patterns which need to be increased considerably in size, requiring you to go to a copy shop to have them made in the proper size. For those of us who don't have easy access to such an establishment, that is a bit of a challenge. Some of the patterns can be copied in their larger sizing in sections and taped together, but some won't work that way. All in all, it is a very good book with a nice range of felting projects.

I just received this yesterday and have loved looking at all the beautiful photographs. There are many creative projects with clear directions. Basics of needle felting, etc. are also included. I purchased a similar book and there were only ideas, no "how-to" for the beginner. This book covers everything. I'm very pleased!

The picture on the book was a little misleading. I thought the book would have more projects using flat felt pieces, not felt fiber for FELTING. It was my mistake. I should have done more research on the book. There are a couple of projects in the book that can be for felt pieces, not fiber, and that are cute. I really like the FLOWER BOUQUET NECKPIECE on pages 66-71. But be aware that this book is for taking wool fiber and turning it into felt jewelry.

One of the things I especially like about this book is the variety of interesting techniques and unique styles shown. I have done a lot of "basic" felting but this book has inspired me to try new things. I had great success even though I used slightly different materials, because some things were hard to find here. The pictures and directions made it easy to get great results. There are "beginner" level projects too and the instructions are clear so you can move beyond what you already know.

I purchased this book for inspiration for my wool felt projects and I was not disappointed. While I doubt that I will use too many of the patterns (they are a bit too 'hemp hippy' style for my tastes), each pattern will give me ideas from which I can create something a bit more refined and delicate to suit my tastes. If you want to be inspired, this book will do the trick nicely regardless of your fashion tastes.

The jewelry is a bit funky forbmy taste but I will keep the volume as a reference. I run a small shop and we teach felting. Of course not everyone has the same taste so some may adore the projects. The book came through Amazon very quickly.
I give the book 2 stars and Amazon 5.

I have done almost every project in this book but I always change it a bit to make it more my own. It has clear instructions as well as great photographs. I recommend this for your library. A good buy!
