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!
If you are looking for a book that shows you a wide range of things you can make out of felt, then go for it. If you are like me and thought you'd be getting a book showing you how to make plushies and cute dolls.. this is not the book for you.

Charming Hand stitched felt crafts done in a primitive style. Perfect for spending some quality time with beginner or younger crafters. Toys, Finger Puppets or perhaps a tooth fairy pillow for those precious baby teeth exchanges. These crafts are easy enough for crafters of all ages. They can be used as gifts, stocking stuffers and even decorations for packages. Adjustments can be made to the sizes to accommodate with objects that differ from the patterns given. You can embellish the projects to personalize them to your own personality. Don't worry if the stitches are not perfect or all the same size as it is called primitive art for that very reason. You are doing it by hand so that each is unique and one of a kind just like the crafter who makes it.
