Falalala Felt is filled with more than forty fun felt projects grouped by ornaments, decorations, and stockings. All of the project can be used at the holidays, but many of them could also be used year round, like the darling birds, hearts, fish, matroyshkas, and more. I loved how they turned the classic pink and white frosted (with little colored balls) animal cookies into tree ornaments! Those would be cute as a decoration in a baby's room year round.
Many of the projects use a very simple hand stitch, but there are also some no sew crafts, like the felt scrap wreath -- save your scraps! I loved the stunning hand stitched gift tags, as well as the beautiful reverse applique style, used on a Christmas stocking. And the tiny felt gingerbread house ornaments were darling. Falalala Felt is a delightful craft book filled with fun ideas that a beginner can easily make, plus it gives wonderful inspiration for the seasoned crafter, as well!
I saw that some of the reviewers were disappointed that they had to enlarge the patterns. The book looked too cool to pass up for that reason - so I bought it. -And happily so! I had to chuckle after I saw the patterns at the back of the book -they're teeny! But the shapes are SO basic (and adorable) if I need a pattern -they can easily be drawn on tracing paper in the size I choose.
I can't wait to take this book to 'show 'n tell' at my sewing group!
(I was also *thrilled* to find out it was published in Asheville and written by an Ashevillian!!)
Most of these projects are very very basic. If you know running stitch and don't mind free-hand drawing your own patterns, you can probably have figured out how to make almost all of these things on your own. This makes it a perfect book for a beginning sewer (especially as felt is such a lovely, easy fabric to work with) or for a more experienced sewer looking simply for seasonal inspiration. However, if you are looking for new techniques, or challenging projects, you might find this book a little elementary.
