5.0 out of 5 stars love it. 20 Dec 2010
By george
Love this book, want to try nearly every project. There is something for all abilities. Looking through the book was very inspiring and got me very much in the festive creative mood, There are 45 projects to chose from ranging from ornaments, decorations and stockings. This should be a definite buy for those who love making their own decorations or if you simply love working with felt.

5.0 out of 5 stars what a great book 25 Nov 2010
By MrsP
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am crafty but not the world's best sewer and even I managed to replicate these patterns to a good standard. There are some lovely things in this book - you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars FESTIVE, FUN AND EASY TO MAKE FELT CRAFTS 19 Nov 2011
This is a lovely little book with 45 festive projects with felt and useful instructions about crafting with felt and basic techniques. The book is divided into three sections: "Ornaments", "Decorations" and "Stockings". The ornaments for the tree and the inspiring decorations are all very nice and easy to make and are also excellent ideas for home-made gifts for friends and family. However, I particularly liked the third section with the amazing and original stocking ideas; naturally it includes the traditional colours and designs, but it also has many more elaborate and unique projects for every style, including little stockings for the pets. The book includes all the templates at the end, and even though most need enlargement, they are very easy to use.

Have a Very Happy Christmas!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Felt Crafting Ideas! 13 Nov 2011
By H. Eves
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The best Christmas craft book I have seen for a long time! The only annoying thing which I find with most craft books is that you have to enlarge the patterns on a photocopier which isn't always an easy or cheap option. Aside from this it is a book I can highly recommend with lots of inspirational ideas in it.

Fabulous book with lots of ideas of gifts and craft projects using felt. Although it is american based it can be adapted.

There are some nice projects in this book, but to me many are not all that Christmassy. Personally I don't fancy decorating my home with fish, mushrooms, Russian style dolls, daisies, apples and pears or elephants, at least not at Christmas time. Many of the other projects I have seen pictures of online on the author's blog and elsewhere, and other similar projects online too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Little bit disappointing 22 Sep 2010
I was quite excited about this book but on receipt was a bit disappointed. There are some really nice things in it but quite a lot of the patterns reminded me of others I've used before. Nice book but not overly inspiring for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars fa la la la tastic 28 Oct 2012
Fantastic book for making felt decorations some lovely templates. The templates need to be blown up and instructions are easy to follow I've also mixed and matched templates for some personalised decorations. Highly recommend this book.
