I really liked this cute book - it has great templates and good ideas.

I only found the pictures of the various stitches were hard to decipher. I would recommend a little written overview of each stitch if people are not familiar with them.

Original, fun feltcraft! Sept. 20 2010
By E. M. Tennessen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I LOVE this book. I like creating things from felt (all types) and the ornaments and gifts in this book can be made in regular felt or woolfelt. There is nothing in this book I didn't like. I plan on making the trees (on the cover), the various little felt birdies (really cute), some of the ornaments. Anything in here would make a nice little gift, too. The layout of the book is nice and the pictures make one drool! If you like felt crafting and have basic sewing and embroidery skills, you will like this book.

Fabulous Felt items Sept. 19 2010
By Janene Hofbauer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Usually I am disappointed with the craft books when I received them. There are usually useless items in them that I would not think of creating. These are really imaginative and ones that I can and will make for gifts and decorations for my home.

By Cindy - Published on Amazon.com

This is a great book, full of fun things to make for Christmas. Great for gifts or to keep yourself. Easy directions and just adorable felted items. Easy to understand directions. All templates at back of book, just need to be enlarged and your ready to go.

Very Useful Book Nov. 1 2010
By Nancy Jane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I loved this book. The projects were all easy types to accomplish without a lot of skill. I made the animal crackers set, the felt cones, gingerbread house, and the critter portraits rather quickly. I did have trouble at my local shop trying to enlarge the patterns by 200%. I didn't do all I wanted to as I wasn't that skilled using the machine. I really wish they had been enlarged in the book in the first place. That is my only criticism of a really useful book with many easy projects.

Great ideas Oct. 18 2010
By Astrid - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I love felt, and sew with it quite a lot. This book contains lots of projects that I would never have thought of on my own, such as the felt Christmas cones, the creature-portrait ornaments, and some great recycled-felt trees. This Christmas, "Fa La La La Felt" projects will literally be in every corner of my house.

Most of these projects are very very basic. If you know running stitch and don't mind free-hand drawing your own patterns, you can probably have figured out how to make almost all of these things on your own. This makes it a perfect book for a beginning sewer (especially as felt is such a lovely, easy fabric to work with) or for a more experienced sewer looking simply for seasonal inspiration. However, if you are looking for new techniques, or challenging projects, you might find this book a little elementary.
