I have a few felting books, and this one is my favorite. What's so wonderful about it is this--several fiber artists contributed to the book so the book doesn't follow one person's style. The projects are varied and interesting and unique to each artist. They're also fun and doable and utilitarian (some). Great book--contemporary and relevant and, again, fun!

I read the great reviews of this book and actually looked at a few of the projects inside online. If I had the opportunity to see the real book I wouldn't have bought it. The projects are fairly basic and not very well done. The explanations and instructions are sketchy, at best and the little snippet about the "legend" of how felting came to be is nonsense.
This is one of those books that was created to ride the popularity of felting and sell books, it is not well written or well thought out. It does not to bring anything new to the table or actually teach anything. The photos are nice but that is about it.

This book has wonderful color photos on every page with close-ups and good directions about how to complete projects. I haven't tried any yet, but the directions look easy to follow and comprehensive. There are a variety of smaller as well as more ambitious projects. Most of the projects involve creating your own felt through using the hot water technique with wool tops, but there is at least one using pre-made, store bought felt.

If you are a felting artist, this is not the book for you. This is a craft book. These are projects for kids. I would like to to give a 5 star rating but, since I had to rate both the transaction and the book, a 3 is the best I could do. The transaction was fast, description was accurate and the price was very reasonable.

I've spoken to this author. She is such a wonderful and down to earth person!! I had also received a kit from her and never had so much fun in such a long time. Who would have thought. Just be careful those needles are really sharp and do draw blood:). Thank you for such a wonderful book.

Nikola went to the farm to see the animals up close, but she so a group of women making fuzzy hats and poking crazy needles into the fluffy pieces of fiber. She relates that she almost knocked everyone over to get a closer look at the women and what they were making. From that time she was hooked on felting. She was fascinated with all the things you could make with wool fiber hot water and a little soap. Poke it with needles and within minutes you have a wonderful piece of art. Well it was almost enough to make her want to devote her life to exploring felt. She had always been part of the Indie-crafts movement, but into more traditional crafting until she discovered that you could make felt items with a funky urban twist that would knock people socks off. Now Nikola and co-author Brookelynn Morris invite us into their magical world of felting with their new book that will be released in a few days. The name of this book is "Feltique". They have pictured magnificent projects for us to try in this wonderful book. The illustrations are beautiful as is the entire hard covered book. Each project is laid out for us so we can easily understand and follow the instructions. They also have a vast array of projects using felt in several different ways. Such as; Wet felting, a process involving heat, moisture, and agitation, requires only a little soap, hot water, and elbow grease. Needle felting, in which you turn wool fiber into needle felt by merely pricking it with a felting needle, is like sculpting with wool. Fulling, the process of knitting or crocheting a garment and then agitating it in hot water and soap, creates a strong, durable wool fabric. There are also some projects using commercial felt that you'll want to try such is the stunning necklace featured on the cover of their book.Read more ›

Gave this as a gift to an experienced felter. Though its basice they commented that it helped them recall some simple techniques they had forgotten and needed to be reminded of to apply.
