I have a few felting books, and this one is my favorite. What's so wonderful about it is this--several fiber artists contributed to the book so the book doesn't follow one person's style. The projects are varied and interesting and unique to each artist. They're also fun and doable and utilitarian (some). Great book--contemporary and relevant and, again, fun!

This book has wonderful color photos on every page with close-ups and good directions about how to complete projects. I haven't tried any yet, but the directions look easy to follow and comprehensive. There are a variety of smaller as well as more ambitious projects. Most of the projects involve creating your own felt through using the hot water technique with wool tops, but there is at least one using pre-made, store bought felt.

I read the great reviews of this book and actually looked at a few of the projects inside online. If I had the opportunity to see the real book I wouldn't have bought it. The projects are fairly basic and not very well done. The explanations and instructions are sketchy, at best and the little snippet about the "legend" of how felting came to be is nonsense.
This is one of those books that was created to ride the popularity of felting and sell books, it is not well written or well thought out. It does not to bring anything new to the table or actually teach anything. The photos are nice but that is about it.

I've spoken to this author. She is such a wonderful and down to earth person!! I had also received a kit from her and never had so much fun in such a long time. Who would have thought. Just be careful those needles are really sharp and do draw blood:). Thank you for such a wonderful book.

This book has many wonderful ideas for beginners and experienced needle felters. The directions are simple and clear. I am excited to start making some of the projects shown in the book.

If you are a felting artist, this is not the book for you. This is a craft book. These are projects for kids. I would like to to give a 5 star rating but, since I had to rate both the transaction and the book, a 3 is the best I could do. The transaction was fast, description was accurate and the price was very reasonable.
