Wool Toys and Friends: Step-by-step Instructions for Needle-felting Fun
This volume teaches and illustrates fun, needle-felted projects to add to your collection of Wool Pets. The instructions include wet-felting and various embellishment techniques along with the needle felting and discusses the ways that folk art and nature inspire the projects. Heirloom hand-crafted wooden or cloth toys, birds and other animals have inspired and influenced the projects which have been translated into needle-felted art.
