Publisher Comments:

Beautiful photographs, practical instructions and inspirational designs combine to make this a perfect introduction to a craft that is having a popular resurgence. Felt starts with a detailed introduction on how to felt-- including a list of all the equipment and materials needed. From there each section builds on the different techniques in the previous section to teach such techniques as flat felt (making flat felt is the first step in this craft), pre-felts (combining pre-felted pieces with flat felt), Nuno felt (a new type of felt made using a base of fine open-weave fabric to create a very lightweight felt) and new techniques (non-traditional methods of making felt). Each section has three to five different projects with step-by-step photos and complete instructions for each project. The range of projects include:

Colorful cushions and a gauzy window drape

Scarves made with a variety of techniques

A simple bag constructed from a felted square

A stitched and felted baby blanket

A multi-purpose garment that can be a skirt or a wrap.

Complete with a glossary, felting tips and resources- including feltmaking associations, websites, galleries and suppliers, Felt is an invaluable sourcebook for both the aspiring or more experienced fabric crafter.
