Product Description

Review

'In the fingers of German architect Schaefer, magic wool becomes the substance for creating, quite literally, a series of decorative angels that could fly as gifts or house accessories. The equipment is simple; most tools are fairly ubiquitous to American households, including pipe cleaners, wooden beads, scissors, glue, felt-tip pens, needle, and thread. With those at hand, the author launches her instructions -- for simple, all-in-one and two part fairies. The more than 20 patterns feature a variety of eight-inch-high creatures, from a lavender or orchid fairy to, yes, the Christmas and tooth fairies. Directions leave little to the imagination; color [sic] photographs are more than plentiful, especially in the first how-to section ... But great-easy-to-fashion holiday gifts.' -- Booklist Online, American Library Association

This has given me a new insight to what to do with my wool rovings that I have from my spinning. I am sure that my grandchildren will love to try at making the Fairies. A must for craft groups.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a wonderful book 9 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I ordered this book after becoming involved in soap felting. I make handmade soap and then felt it. I started to look at needle felting little designs onto the felted soap, one thing led to another and after buying two books on felting I found this one and as the idea of my soap stall being inhabited by little magic wool fairies and maybe the odd imp here and there filled me with such delight I feel like a child again with my imagination buzzing around like a mad bee.This book makes the making of fairies such a doable and easy operation that quite soon I can see fairies inhabiting my stall, my house, the garage and probably the neighbourhood around and about. Such fun.
