Felt Me a Smile by Toyoko Sugiwaka
It’s impossible to open up Felt Me a Smile by Toyoko Sugiwaka and not smile. I dare you to try it. With pages upon pages of some of the cutest felted animals, you’ll enjoy the art of felting while making these adorable toys, ornaments, home decor accents, and more. How cute is the cover project of the hanging Bird Tent? This felting book is great because it covers both the technique of wet felting as well as needle felting. I enjoy doing both but as a beginner I find it hard to come up with ideas on what to felt. This book gives it all to you including step-by-step photos and templates to complete each project and includes lots of tips for beginners.
I love the photo spreads in the book. I could just flip through each page and soak in all the pretty pictures.

How cute are these cuddly pair of bears? You can see how great the directions are for this needle felting project.
The Masked Cat Cushion and the Whispering Rabbits Ring Holder are both great wet felting projects.
The Nirvana Rabbit is a cute wet felted toy you can sew up. I also love the Dog in Sheep’s Clothing project where you crochet the little dog and create the wet felted sheep outfit.
