This book will, of course, appeal to felters but I think that it will also appeal to a wide range of crafters, and sewers. If I was a Mom I would have a great time making these little treasure for my children... providing them with their very own camp fire without the burn or scissors with the potential for cuts! This book is well done and thoroughly enjoyable !
I bought it just because I liked the cover and I haven't been disappointed by the contents.
The book is divided into set pieces like a tool kit, doctor's set, fruit and veg, gingerbread house....all sorts.
Nearly all the patterns are full size and the instructions are very clear. Photos and instructions are numbered so you can follow them at a glance.
It's a much better layout than other felt books I've bought and everything I've made has looked just like the photos, which is a testament to the book more than my skills! I'm a fan!
The book has one feature that I believe sets it apart from from the many other craft books out there - the patterns are sized at 100%, this may not seem like a big deal but I have a decent stash of craft/felty books and am always frustrated to find that they contain patterns that need enlarging.
I'd definitely recommend this book, it has a good selection of projects ranging from banana split sundaes to a handbag complete with lipstick and mobile.
the sections include:
All projects are 3d, and are suitable to be used as gifts and child play sets when completed.
As a 25 year old who enjoys various projects this book is lovely as it offers such a variety of ideas with wiggle room to adapt them later to make whole new designs, I've brought a few felt books lately and have to say this is the best I have found so if your looking to indulge a hobby or make a gift (the plant section has some lovely plants, so if you know people who lack the greenthumb talent one of these would be a great gift!)this is the one for you.
downside: some projects need plastic sheeting, cardboard, and craft metal sheets for shape retention, other than that only problem is what to make first....
The number of pieces in each chapter is great.
I especially liked the fruit you can use the felt knife to 'cut' in half.
The templates are good and the step by step photos are clear.
All round a fun book.
Lots of beautiful felt food -- but my 8 year old is way past playing with felt food. Lots of really adorable felt projects -- the lantern, the BBQ, the smores -- but cute as they are, they are pretty much directed at a very young crowd.
It all looks so beautiful, and yet who to make it for? Even the little computer -- well, there are loads of kids out there playing on real computers at 3 & 4, so why spend hours & hours sewing a beautiful felt one for them?
I loved looking at all of the projects, but found it difficult to imagine who I would make the majority of the projects for, who would appreciate & use what would be, after the time invested, treasures?

The patterns are full sized and the instructions are clear you will love this book.
I love this book. The instructions are clear, the patterns are easy to copy and you don't need a photocopier to blow up patterns, which always puts me off buying a book.Published on 29 Jan. 2014 by Betty Virago
