Lately, I've been researching various crafts and hobbies to learn what is involved in them. Finding helpful information for beginning needle felting proved to be a bit more of a challenge than originally expected. Fortunately, Amazon offers interesting collection of sellers who provide products for needle felting, and a few do have some items to guide the absolute beginner. I happened upon this book, and it looked quite friendly, so I purchased it hoping it would give me insight into the craft... something besides twee flowers and appliqué for clothing, something closer to sculpting with wool rather than flat design. I also wanted something that described basic tools, materials, and techniques. I wanted Needle Felting 101! :) And I got it with this purchase!

I was pleasantly surprised. This book was much better than expected--and yes, it works best for beginners (responsible, mature teens to adults) and for those who want to work in miniature. Those with advanced needle felting skills may prefer more challenging projects like Silver Penny's "Needle Felted Wizard" or other larger, holiday characters. Needle felters who are into more "realistic looking" animal styles may not enjoy this book. // The clues for the content are really on the book's cover: "LITTLE Felted Animals: Create 16 Irresistible Creatures with SIMPLE Needle-Felting Techniques." The operative words here are "little" and "simple."

For a beginner, this book offers an excellent collection of starter projects that can foster tool appreciation, build skills, and spark creativity, providing that the person is willing to spend time with the book and practicing shaping. [I've discovered that needle felting is not a craft for the hurried, frazzled, irritable, or impatient!

...but there isn't much in the way of serious instruction. She gives the basics and they are basically the same for each animal. There is not a single photo of someone actually felting in this book - just photo's of the finished project, and of the supplies needed for each project. I had to go online to see someone needle felting just to get the, "Oh!" that I was missing from this book - my first on felting. There are no notes or anecdotes on why you should use different needles, tips or tricks to using different types of wool, etc. I really love the photo's and inspiration though, so I gave the book 4 stars - but if I were not as crafty as I am I probably would have been disappointed with the lack of useful information.

I am new at needle felting, but this book explains each step very clearly. The book includes photos and drawings along with very clear descriptions. They even show and tell you what you need for each product. This is a great book for anyone interested in learning this craft.

This is a delightfully illustrated book with artistically designed, realistic looking little 3-D animals to create using wool roving and the needle felting technique. It is very well thought out, illustrated with easy to understand and follow step by step instructions. It comes with patterned drawings for sizing the proportions on each part of each animal. It contains photos of each and every step of the process. After purchasing 5 felting crafters books from the internet, this is by far the best book of it's kind that I've seen. I am a beginning needle felter, and I made a beautiful little cat on my first attempt! I am inspired to make a lot more! My friends want me to make thier pets from felted wool after seeing my little miniature 'Simon'. I would definitely recommend this book!

While Marie-Noelle Horvath's "Little Felted Animals" does include basic instructions for sixteen different make-it-yourself felted critters, the finished animals depicted in the book lack character and soul. They are not as "irresistible" as the title suggests.

Perhaps, my expectations are way too high. After watching Sundance Channel's "Man Shops Globe: Scotland" where Anthropologie buyer Keith Johnson happens upon crafter Domenica Moore Gordon's felt dogs and cannot get over their miniature personalities, I confess to assuming that "Little Felted Animals" would give me a glimpse into that charismatic appeal that so bewitched Johnson despite the diminutive size. Oh well, I was wrong. But, I did some further research and ordered one of Ms. Moore Gordon's dog kits to discover the secret for myself.

I imagine that the kit, along with this book might aid me in creating some "soulful" animals of my own. The enchantment of Johnson when he held each little creature and the look of wonderment on his face, is one I want to share.

That being said, the book itself is structured well. The photos are lovely, even if the animals are a bit mediocre. Ms Horvath seems to be striving for a uniformity of shape and texture where Ms Moore Gordon emphasizes the whimsical, adding just that extra oomph into the resulting creation. Horvath does explain in detail the formulation for each creature. She includes diagrams, color choices and appropriate tools for each one and devotes her opening pages to generalized crafting of birds, short-legged and long-legged animals.
