Felt Sew Good – Christine Leech
What I Say:
When most people think of felt, they imagine ‘fuzzy felts’, those brightly coloured felt shapes that you play with when you’re little. Maybe people need to think again!
This is a book of stylish and quirky felt designs inspired by Christine Leech’s travels to Japan and Finland. It features gift ideas, toys, items for the home and seasonal projects and is just brilliant.
‘Felt’ explains Leech ‘is so easy to work with. It doesn’t stretch or fray and as a novice sewer, you really can’t go wrong with it.’ You may never have considered felt crafting before, you might have dismissed it completely, but reading this book, you’ll see that felt can be delicate, artistic and beautiful.
The first section of this book describes the basic skills you will need to tackle the projects. the projects are surprisingly diverse and many would work well as gifts for adults and children.
The best part? You won’t need much equipment or even much felt to produce these items.
Altogether a great book for crafters of any level.
