Brightly coloured felt, primary coloured stitching and simple fabrics to work with - beginners delight. Jodie Rackley is known for her Indie Craft designs and for being a featured artist for Kunin Felt and this is her first book.
The items are fun to work, excellent for making up with children - no edge finishing on felt, plenty of practise of simple embroidery stitches on really cute designs. I totally love the mini mushroom bag, have absolutely no use for it, and can't wait to make it!!
So many things in here are useful, pot holder, placemat, bookmark and various cozies, but really most of them are just decorative and delightful and a joy to look at.
I feel that books like this encourage anyone to start sewing and crafting, a pack of felt and some floss, a bit of cotton fabric, needles, and away you go! All very achievable for a small outlay and an hour or two of leisure time.
