This book is great. Clear instructions helped by good graphics and photos. Good results. A reasonably priced book. Would be perfect for beginners or accomplished needle felters. Highly recommended!

This book was a, bit of as disappointment to me.
Firstly in the introduction it tells th he reader NOT to use merino wool tops for needle felting as merino wool is unsuitable for the task. This advice is completely contrary to any other book, blog,magazine article or class I have ever encountered. .I use merino wool all the time for needle felting and have had some fantastic results. Merino wool is easy to felt, relatively cheap and comes in a fantastic range of colours. Therefore I feel such advice is confusing for someone new to the craft.
I believe the author keeps her own sheep and uses their wool so that might explain this advice
The projects in the book are Ok but to me they have a fuzzy and unfinished look, again I feel this is down to the wool used.
I have several needle felting books and much prefer Spool Buddies to this book
I will probably try some of the projects but I will use them as a guide only .
I wouldn't recommend this book to a beginner or to anyone in fact , there are far better books on the subject

a lovely book - good for beginners and those wanting more of a challenge - very clear instructions and great photographs to inspire you! I made the bumble bee and a ladybird within two hours of having the book delivered!

This is a good book to get you starting making felted animals. worth the money and the wait for it to be reprinted.

I bought this book along with 'I Felt Awesome' as an introduction to needle felting. I guess I was swayed by the penguin on the front!
There is a useful introduction to wool fibres at the beginning, this author uses fleece from her own sheep for her projects, which I think, after a little more reading into the subject and some practice, becomes apparent in the finished article. A lot of the projects just look a little too woolly and unfinished to me, but that is just my preference and felting style. I have ended up not using this book too much, prefering the technique and style of writing in the other book i purchased, but like I say, thats just my preference.
I wouldn't buy this book for a friend.

I found the diagrammes easy to use, I followed them easily, a slight down is that the author is Australian and some of the terms for fleece took a bit of working out, I found several UK suppliers who understood. So all in all a wonderful book.
