I've done many of the projects in this book and love each and every one of them. Working with felt has become a new love for me. I started with this book before December of last year and have been going strong since.
I like that the book gives clear and concise directions and is great for for beginners, but it's also a great stepping off point for seasoned hand-stitchers and embroiderers. Because the projects are so well explained and designed, I was able to modify some to add my own touches but others I've kept just as they were designed because I liked them just the way Kata created them.
I tackled one of the bigger projects in this book as my first project - the adult messenger bag - and had so much fun with it, added extra stitches and embroidery to embellish it and didn't want to stop! Since then, I've been working my way through the book and loving every minute of it. I carry it with me everywhere.
My 10 year old daughter has become a big fan, as well. She wanted to learn to sew with the sewing machine but I told her it would be best to learn hand sewing first and so we started with Kata's book. Not only has she learned easy stitches, but she's working her way up and has created some beautiful projects from Kata's instructions, but she's also been inspired by the stuffed animals in the book to make some of her own unique creations.
Regardless of whether you're a newbie or a seasoned stitcher, this book is a must have!
Working with felt is a wonderful way to teach a child to sew. This book could be used as a sewing primer for children between 6 and 10+ years of age. The first step in sewing is controlling the needle. Working with felt allows the budding sewer to concentrate on that pesky and slippery needle because, unlike woven material, felt does not ravel. Because the style is "folkloric modern" those first tentative stitches do not need to be invisible; nor do they need to be even. They just need to hold. Yes, the items are whimsical, like the finger-puppet mice gracing the cover. However, there are also practical items here, like baskets that can be used to hold sewing projects or doll clothes or action figures; wall hangings (which can be adapted); purses; quilts, and pillows. Children love to make things, but, more importantly, they love to make useful things that they can use and proudly give as gifts. This book allows kids to create both for themselves and for others.
Time deprived adults can make cute felt toys as gifts with little effort. The finger puppets are nice stocking stuffers in winter but, in summer, they are wonderful I'm-bored projects to share with youngsters or to use as package trims on birthday gifts.
