Product Description

Product Description

Boasting countless benefits and applications, hand made felt is a chunky,
durable and non-fraying fabric that can be used for fashion and home projects.
With 'Complete Feltmaking', 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 3D shapes, as well as felting knitted work, needle felting and some
slightly more advanced techniques such as cobweb felting. Each technique is
carefully explained in detail with step-by-step instructions and accompanied by
several projects to keep you constantly inspired.

From a cheerful polka-dot bag and cozy felted slippers to a whimsical mobile
and heart-warming tea cozy, this spirited primer offers a range of projects for
beginner and advanced felters. Once the crafter has become comfortable with
basic techniques, she/he can graduate to more complex felting techniques in
the advanced chapter. This book includes everything you need to bring the
highly sought after handcrafted style of felt to your wardrobe and your home.

My compliments to Gillian this is the first felting book I have owned with adequate photos and description of how to felt. I have been felting for a few years but was never quite sure if I have understood the technique, thanks to you I now do! The projects are absolutely mouthwatering, don't stop at one book - please!

Was lookiong for a new hobby and came across felt making, purchased this book after reading the reviews and it does'nt disappoint.

Teaches you the basic techniques of wet felting, knitted felting, needle felting and more advanced techniques of cobweb and nuno felting. Step by step instructions including pictures for different projects including making a tea cosey, flowers, beads, booties, rug and a bag and each project is given a beginner, intermediate or advanced rating.

Plenty to keep you going and to inspire you to do more.

5.0 out of 5 stars informative and exciting 14 Aug 2010
Format:Paperback
I made felt when at school and have always wanted to try it again now Im older and into my textiles alot.
I wanted a book that took me back to basics and introduced me to it all over again, so that I could re learn and pick up new ideas along the way.
This book did exactly that, its well laid out and is extremely informative. It has many sections that work you through the making process and equipment required to ideas and projects for you to try.
I also love that the design ideas and patterns etc are ranged from Beginner through to advanced.
Each project is clear, and easy to understand. It has a materials list on each one and a step by step guide to make the item.
I have not made anything yet, but am very excited to start.
An absolute bargain as well so should not be missed!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars not as good as I expected 8 Feb 2012
By SuzyG
Format:Paperback
I'd just been on a felting course and bought this book because the projects look great. But aside from a couple of brief introduction chapters none of the projects have step by step photos until the very end with the advanced projects. An image for each step of the project instructions world have made a world of difference.
Another gripe I have about this book is that each project has a introductory photo and another one at the end - often these are the same photo!! And on the next page!! Surely a bigger close-up or a different angle could have been used!
Last complaint - the middle of the book is about knitted felt - about 25 pages worth. Most of this is about how to knit your project, bung it in the washing machine to shrink and then sew it together. I know this is also 'felting' and that this is the 'complete' book of feltmaking but I could have done without this whole section.
One of the other reviewers has an issue with the needle felting section. They're right - there is no mention of needle sizes anywhere - only that they can be bigger or finer - but no indication of which way the gauge goes, so not much help if you want to buy some! To answer someone else's question, there is a list of suppliers at the back of the book and, yes, the one I was recommended is there.
If I had not been on a course I would have been really baffled by this book. I also found more useful instructions by looking on YouTube.

To summarise: nice projects but I couldn't recommend as a beginners step-by-step guide.
