5.0 out of 5 stars Quick And Clever Felting January 31, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I make lots of crafts using felt and the most tedious thing to do is make felt balls. This book provides simple instructions for making them uniform and it gives examples for embellishing them. Love the book.

I would have given this book 4 stars for its explanations of techniques at the beginning, but only 2 stars for the projects.

I bought it because I was interested in the Fair Isle bag made from a favorite sweater. And there was a large color picture of it with a few suggestions about cutting the front and back rectangles on a slight slant to make it more interesting, as well as suggestions for handles. It didn't tell me a thing I couldn't have already figured out for myself.

The "Favorite Jumper (cardigan) Bag" had 5 whole pages of pictures and directions, but I can't say I thought the finished product looked at all professional (i.e., like anything I would care to carry around). Some other bags were really cute or of an interesting construction (one, in particular, had a piece of felt cut out to reveal a flower and rabbit pattern, which was to be laid on top of a contrasting color of felt, but how were these layers to be held together?--by GLUE! Not a recipe for something you could clean or wash when it got soiled. In fact, that was the problem with most of the bags. I presume that careful washing in cold water with no agitation might work for the ones made from felted old sweaters, but I am dubious about the possibility of washing the bags made from ready-made felt, and they look like they would probably soon show soiling.

I actually disliked the looks of the felted corsage flowers, but there was an interesting suggestion for making a felted closure for the Snowflake Tote Bag (which was pretty, though as with some other things, the motifs were to be GLUED ON. UGH!).

The BEST PARTS of this book, for me, were at the beginning.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too simple. More of a craft book than an art book. January 3, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book relies heavily on pre-made felt. I was hoping for more of an art book and got a craft book for beginners who will probably never take it to a level past cute crafty things.

I have recently joined a "Wet" felting group (where you layer the wool, wet it, agitate/rub it with soap and warm/hot water and the wool fibers felt). At the last gathering the members were making Tea Pots made out of felt. Some really creative ideas were being generated by the members. I am also going to explore needle felting. This process uses special needles to punch in and out of wool pieces and eventually the fibers start sticking together and "join up".

I looked at this Quick and Clever Felting book available on Amazon and as a novice felter saw that there was some excellent background information on various techniques presented. Very basic ideas but this little booklet can be a springboard for creativity. It has ideas for both "Wet" felting and "Needle" felting which I appreciated.

I have enjoyed looking at this book, and have seen several projects that look useful and practical as well as 'cute', which will be worth the time and effort to create. The step by step guide is clearly illustrated and easy to understand. I would recommend it.
