I was hesitant to order this book as I am not really into felt flowers (until now!), but with my interest in hand and machine felting lately, I thought that I would give it a try and use it with my personal art. After reading the book thoroughly I became extremely impressed with the author's finished products. The author provides clear details in all production aspects of these beauties. First she begins with her methods that apply to all flowers in one degree or another and then for each type of flower she describes how to make them referring back to the methods in the first part of the book. These flowers are the most realistic looking felt flowers I have seen and the sizes make them all the more striking. A must-have book for those interested in botanical fiber artwork...practice with a few of these and then develop your own preferred flowers using the techniques learned by the author...you can't go wrong!

Craft and home décor expert Lynne Farris brings a lifetime of experience in fabric arts to her new book Fresh Felt Flowers.

Lynne is a fabric artist best known for her botanical soft sculpture art. Lynne's designs are often on HGTV on "The Carol Duvall Show" as well as "Lynette Jennings Design" on the Discovery Channel. Her new book showcases seventeen stunning felt flowers to sew and display.

Whether you are a novice or an accomplished sewer, you will find the perfect project Start with the simple African violet and finish the book with the more challenging Bird of Paradise. The book is beautifully photographed with very clear instructions. At first intimidating because the felt flowers look so magnificent, once you dive in you will be amazed by how successful you can be.

Before sitting down at your craft table, you will need to run to your local craft store and pick up a few necessary items. These essentials are clearly spelled out in the beginning of the book. Most items are relatively inexpensive except for the required sewing machine.

The stitching and cutting techniques used for most of these floral projects are carefully explained in the basic techniques section of the book. The author suggests you read this chapter thoroughly before starting on any of the projects.

I started with the Gerbera Daisy, my favorite flower, and I am glad to say it is displayed prominently on my dining room table.

Armchair Interviews says: Wonderful craft project for people who like to create with their hands.

Fresh felt flowers was a great book! The instructions were easy and the results were fabulous. I made the lilies and when I posted a picture to my blog, people thought they were real. Will definitely be making more. These flowers stay beautiful forever!

This book covers flowers for home decoration, and not the kind you want for hair bows and such. They are very detailed with sewing thread colors and wire placement. If your goal is to make felt house plants, then get it. If you are trying to make felt flowers for hair accessories, I wouldn't recommend it because the flowers are too elaborate, heavy, and detailed to be "cute."

The book Fresh Felt Flowers is a wonderful introduction into the world of making beautifully detailed flowers out of felt. As a person who has difficulty keeping plants and flowers alive, I love the idea of making colorful, everlasting blooms that are, in my opinion, more attractive and appealing than the run of the mill silk flowers from the craft store. Tulips are my favorite spring flower, but I am always disappointed at how quickly they fade away. Now, I can make realistic looking tulips that will bring color and beauty to my home for about the same cost as purchasing fresh. Felt flowers are also a nice alternative for those who suffer from allergies. In my case, while I love the look of pink tiger lilies, I am so allergic to them that I can't be around them at all.

There are 17 different flower projects shown in the book that vary in skill level from beginner to advanced so that you can start out at a level that is comfortable for you and then move on to more complicated projects. The photographs are what make this book so appealing and usable. Not only are there arranged scenes of the completed flowers in decorator vases, but also close-ups of each flower so that you can see how they are put together. Also, when I read directions, I sometimes have problems visualizing how things are put together; in this book, this issue is completely eliminated because each step is not only very clearly explained, but there are abundant photos showing the step-by-step process of assembling the flowers.

The book begins with an introduction to the tools and materials needed to make the flowers, most of which are standard sewing and craft items such as scissors, beading and floral wire, and a sewing machine, to name a few.
