Making Needle Felted Animals is an essential guide for those interested in the popular craft of needle felting. Whether one is completely new to needle felting or has extensive experience, this book offers precise instructions and creative inspiration. The authors are experienced in making and teaching crafts to students of all ages and abilities. Their instructions are easy to follow and include practical and creative ideas to fix common mistakes and successfully complete projects.
The 20 patterns and design ideas arise from well-loved stories and myth, as well as from a genuine love of the natural world and animals, whether they are family pets ("Our Friend Dexter") or animals in the wild whose widespread ill-treatment has brought them to public attention. Requiring no experience other than an interest in working and playing with wool, the projects build progressively on skills throughout the book, and will quickly help the reader become a real needle felter.
Making Needle Felted Animals includes beautiful photographs and illustrations throughout.
