"Felt so Good" a Fun new Book - and Gift-a-Way!!!

Gentle Friends, remember last month I was approached by Heather G to talk about a new book "Simply Samplers" - well, she has asked me to talk about another crafty book, this time it's all about felt and embroidery - and - up-cycling!!  The new book is called "Felt So Good" and is just full of some of the cutest projects using felt and wool.

 Written by Tone Rorseth, a Norwegian designer, this book has 70+ projects to make.  All using wool in some form and many with embroidery embellishments.  The projects all seem that they can be made in an afternoon are less time.

I thought these felt and decorated caps were too cute!!  All the patterns and detailed instructions are included in the book. 

 There are even fun little project for just embellishing.....

 This garland was such a super idea - for those who get snow and those that live where there is no snow!!

 ... and example of the detailed patterns from the book - these are for some wonderful felt slippers....

I just loved this idea of combining naturally found things like acorn tops and wool to create this great hanging wreath.
