This adorable book shows how to make a wide variety of birds by needle felting-sculpting wool roving into a three-dimensional figure using a special barbed needle. Each project includes a fun photo of the project with step-by-step instructions that result in 15 types of feathered friends! With Felted Feathered Friends, you'll learn to make endearing creatures such as: a snowy owl, a peacock, a great blue heron, a bluebird, a robin, a flamingo, a pair of lovebirds, and much more. These delightful creations will put a smile on anyone's face, and with easy-to-follow directions and the author's enthusiastic and expert guidance, anyone can take part in the feathered fun!
