Boasting countless benefits and applications, handmade felt is a chunky, durable and non-fraying fabric that can be used for fashion and home projects. With Complete Feltmaking, any crafter can learn the art of creating felt with a little fleece, water and soap.
This exciting book covers all aspects of feltmaking, from making simple flat felt to felting 3D shapes, as well as felting knitted work, needle felting and some slightly more advanced techniques such as cobweb felting. Each technique is carefully explained in detail with step-by-step instructions and accompanied by several projects to keep you constantly inspired. From a cheerful polka-dot bag and cozy felted slippers to a whimsical mobile and heart-warming tea cosy, this spirited primer offers a range of projects for beginner and advanced felters.
Once the crafter has become comfortable with basic techniques, they can graduate to more complex felting techniques in the advanced chapter.
This book includes everything you need to bring the highly sought after handcrafted style of felt to your wardrobe and your home.
