Description

Felt is an ancient craft, dating back to the Bronze Age. It is the oldest textile fabric and was made before people learned to spin, weave or knit. Hand-made felt has an entirely different quality to the machine-made felt found in craft stores. It is a chunky, more hardwearing and can be made in a variety of designs and colors- it does not fray, so no sewing is required. And any crafter can learn the art of creating felt with a little fleece, water and soap.
This exciting new book covers all aspects of feltmaking, from making simple flat felt to felting 3-d shapes, as well as felting knitted work, needle felting and some more advanced techniques. Each technique is carefully explained in detail with step-by-step instructions and photographs. The several projects accompanying each technique also have full instructions and step-by-step photography.
From a cheerful polka-dot bag and cozy felted slippers to a whimsical fish mobile and cozy heart shaped rug, this valuable primer offers a wide range of projects making it an ideal book for crafters of all skill levels seeking to add fashionable felted projects to their wardrobe and home.
