Crafters everywhere are discovering the joys of feltmaking. Working with fleece roving — now readily available at yarn and craft stores — is fun, tactile, and easy for all ages and levels of crafters. The 25 irresistible projects in Making Felted Friends show how creative it can be to work with this colorful, malleable medium using wet and needle-felting techniques.
From cats, dogs, and penguins to snakes, dinosaurs, and monkeys, all the favorite animal friends are covered. Many start with a simple armature, which is wrapped with fleece roving. Then, with the addition of a bit of soap, water, and elbow grease, most projects can be made in several hours. Felting invites embellishment, and these projects make the most of it with brightly colored spots, stripes, spikes, and beaks that offer the imaginative crafter opportunities for sculpting one-of-a-kind creatures.
Playful and cuddly to hold, some of these fuzzy felted friends make perfect toys. Others are designed to add a decorative touch to a tabletop or mantel display. Whether given as gifts or kept for entertainment and inspiration, the comical critters in this original felted menagerie are sure to become friends for life.
