fun with wool, needle and hand felting japanese craft book
this projects in this book use basic beginning wet felting techniques, combined with some needlefelting.
the projects are functional (coasters, cozies, trays, pouches, book covers) and accessories (key fobs, corsages, decorative felt flowers).
the basic techniques of wet felting are introduced, including flat work, shaped felt, and felting around a resist to make a pocket. in addition, they use needle felting to add decoration and details.
the written directions are all in japanese, but there are step by step photos of the processes used in each technique. if you have never tried felting before, you should probably look at some basic information in english first, but once you understand the basic ideas, these projects are all beginning level.
