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.
