Some of our reviews:

"I have about twenty felting books but this one beats the lot, it's illustrations are wonderful, the instructions precise and understandable, the animals are just gorgeous, The fox is just to die is just right for both starters and the more experienced....wish all craft books could be so rewarding..."

"I've never needle felted before but this book explains clearly how to create simple felted animals from the beginning. As you build your experience you can create more complex creatures as you develop your skills. The photographs are lovely and the illustrations are clear and helpful. I love the personal touches throughout the book which show the care and attention to detail that have gone into making it"

"I received my book yesterday and it's brilliant! The animals look so natural that it makes me want to create a forest or a garden in my house so I have somewhere for our new woolly friends to live! Whether you're a beginner or an experienced needle felter, this book has a lot to offer. The information it provides is very helpful. The projects are accompanied by clear instructions, hand drawn illustrations and photographs. The felting bloopers section is very helpful! This book has made me look at creations differently, to look at the shapes within the item you would like to make which I think is a skill that will help me greatly in the future."

"just got my copy today as a surprise gift and I am over the moon.....what a beautiful looking book...the photography is just magical and i can't wait to dive in and start making some of the projects....thoroughly recommend for beginners to even the experienced...after all who doesn't need to know how to make feet?"

Lovely bok

Just flicked through at the moment but seems very comprehensive and well illustrated. Looking forward to using it but other things are taking up my time at the moment.

A good book for new needlefelters

I bought this book a couple of weeks ago. It starts with a good run through of useful basics for beginners - different types of wool, different felting needles and what they are used to do. Also a section on basic felting techniques. The project instructions are well described with good pictures to follow. Looking forward to making my first animal make from this book.
