Review:

"Enticing and colorful projects; instructions easy to follow." -- Textile Fibre Forum magazine

Synopsis:

Natural, tough, and beautiful - felt is an extraordinary textile. Using natural woolen fibers hand-rubbed with water, you can create a durable, versatile fabric for making a wonderful collection of garments and home accessories. Best of all, felt never frays. Authors Margaret Docherty, an expert felt maker and teacher, and Jayne Emerson, a textile designer, have teamed up to present the fundamentals of felting: choosing fibers and colors, making flat felt and boiling felt, and stiching felt. They also cover the more advanced process of inlaying other fibers to vary felt design and texture. The felting techniques are demonstrated with 20 beautiful projects in a range of contemporary colors; projects include a cozy cloche hat, a charming child's jacket, warm slippers, delicate scarves, square and inlayed throw pillows, and an exquisite, long-lasting rug. Each project is presented with simple, step-by-step instructions and illustrations, and offers alternative samples and suggestions that help you to create your own designs. Now you can bring the highly sought-after handcrafted style of felt into your wardrobe and home - this book promises to make it simple, and oh, so beautiful.
