Synopsis: A pretty little twist on felt

Wool felt offers endless crafting possibilities - it feels soft to the touch, dyes easily, cuts without fraying and sews like a dream. When you combine felt with mixed-media elements such as paper, beads, buttons, lace, glitter and even bits of metal screen, you can make all kinds of magical creations, from zippered pouches and scented pincushions to unexpected jewelry and sweet fairy dolls. Pretty Little Felts includes instructions and inspiration for more than 20 whimsical projects, as well as:

   • A helpful techniques section with step-by-step instructions for embroidery stitches, dyeing felt, wet felting beads and deconstructing vintage wool garments
   • Numerous variation projects to spark your imagination and inspire you to put your own spin on the author's clever charm bracelets, ornaments, pouches and more
   • An extensive resources list to help you find all the materials you need to make your felt and mixed-media creations
Get out your collection of quirky treasures and prized vintage finds and give them new life in your own Pretty Little Felts.
