Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Often thought of as a practical material, felt can be surprisingly versatile and even poetic. With handmade felted fabrics, subtle variations in color, texture, and volume can be achieved: threads and fibers merge almost magically to form new motifs that can then be enlivened by embroidered or crocheted details.

Françoise Tellier-Loumagne takes an original approach to the world of feltmaking, finding design inspiration in calm morning skies, spectacular sunsets, and brilliant fireworks displays. The book includes basic techniques that can be used to create felted fabrics from scratch, such as needle-felting and tufting, along with imaginative ideas for ready-made felt. With a little artistic guidance, clouds across the moon can be turned into an eye-catching necklace, or a stormy sky may inspire a striking scarf or cushion cover.

Illustrated with hundreds of images, this book will be a treasure trove for anyone interested in original textile design.

Synopsis:

An inspiring, all-color survey of designs and patterns for this popular craft.

Beautiful book! Francoise truly has managed to "paint" with fibers...and she shows us ways to recreate the images of nature through felting. There are lots of books out there about crafting with felt, but THIS one takes the humble medium of felt to a whole new level. An absolute MUST for the fiber artist and "crafter...to feed your soul and show you what is possible.

This is a beautiful book. It evokes the long debated division between Craft and Art. Felting is usually considered a "craft", yet the felt depicted here has an amazing depth of subtle color more closely aligned with "art". The avid felter will find this book to be a source of inspiration.
