Designed with the absolute beginner in mind, this project collection explores all the major feltmaking techniques, from knit-and-shrink to wet felting, needlefelting, and "recycled felting," as well as ways to combine techniques for creative and unique results. With 26 projects and photographs of more than 50 before-and-after felted yarn combinations, crafters can easily customize patterns with substitutions of their choice. Instructions are given for felted bags, flowers, hats, jackets, scarves, wool sneakers, and even a nuno felted skirt; while fiber types, tools for getting started, and the four major techniques needed to create these projects are also all covered. Armed with plenty of information and the authors' can-do spirit, crafters will find it easy to add felting to their repertoires.
