Felt Inlays: Making Textured and Patterned Felt for 23 Creative Projectsby Nancy Hoerner
Synopses & Reviews
It's not just another felt book. Besides teaching this unique wet felt inlay technique, it includes 20 projects.
Felting has always captivated the yarn and fiber craft audience. Whether you know how to knit/crochet or not, you can do this kind of felting. Wet felting gives the crafter/designer complete freedom and control from the beginning. Hand-painted and solid-color roving-wool that has not been spun into yarn-is arranged on a surface and subjected to hot water and agitation to create felt fabric. With Nancy's freeform methods, wool yarns, novelty yarns, bits of felt (called prefelt), and other fibers are worked into the felt to create highly textured and patterned fabrics-felt inlays. Each felt inlay (individual piece of hand-made fabric) is unique and creative. But what's really great about this book is that Nancy takes it one giant step ahead by including 20 projects to show what you can make with your felt inlays.
