The Countdown to Maker Faire Bay Area is On!


Book Giveaway: Feltique

Craft & Design

Today is the release of Feltique! The book is beautiful, if I do say so myself, and I am happy to announce that Potter Craft has graciously decided to let me give 5 copies away to CRAFT readers. There are many ways to make felt, and make projects with felt, and Feltique covers them all, including wet felting, needle felting, fulled felt, and commercial felt crafts. Feltique has 46 projects for every skill level, from jewelry and accessories to toys for babies and repurposed clothing. More than 15 of the projects were created by contributors from around the globe, representing an amazing number of creative craft styles.
This book is relevant not only because the projects are fashionable and interesting, but because of the low cost of the materials needed. They will fit into your craft budget, and help you build your affordable gift stash. My personal favorites include a necklace made from commercial wool felt using a scrapbooking punch, the needle felted cuff bracelet, and the stunning wet felted scarves, including one that’s nuno felted.
Besides just projects, the book gets into some heady felt territory, including tackling the question: what IS felt? The answer, in a nutshell? One basic tenet covers each type of felt: generally speaking, any non-woven fabric can be considered felt. But in the craft world, and in Feltique, we consider fabric that has been knitted and washed until the stitches shrink together to be felt. Strictly speaking they are “fulled,” but we include them in the category of felt because if fulled fabric can be cut without unraveling, it has the properties of felt. Feltique also hits on the origins of felt and the science of felt, all while presenting beautiful art that’s accessible for every crafter.
To win a copy of Feltique, leave a comment on this post telling us why you need this book. Please make sure you include your email address in the comment form field (won’t be published). We’ll close the contest at 10 a.m. on Thursday, May 21st, and announce the winners on Friday. Cheers, and good luck!
P.S. If you are in Sebastopol, Calif., I’m hosting a book launch party at 7 p.m. at Copperfield’s! There will be cupcakes, champagne, and felting. Come visit!

    i need this book because i have been itching to get into felt. i have been aquiring old wool sweaters with the intent of making things from their felted corpses… alas, i have been procrastinating. this looks like the very jolt of inspiration that i need. please.

  40. spazzymommy says:

    I teach a home-ec class for young and teenaged girls. I fund all the craft projects, snacks and materials from my own budget, and it can become quite expensive- but it’s a labor of the heart.
    So far, my “girls” have learned to knit, sew, photograph, crochet and cook, but we’ve never attempted felting.
    This book would be a great addition to our resource library that I let the girls borrow from. I think my class would LOVE using the ideas from this book for class projects. :)

  41. Lauren says:

    I NEED this book because I’m currently obsessed with felt and wool. I’ve been looking for the perfect book on working with felt since I started needle felting late last year. None of the other books out there have quite the level of awesome I am seeking, but this book looks like it has the perfect combination of different techniques, squids, and science!!

  42. Kara says:

    Felt is my number one medium, and I need this book because I’m moving overseas where I will be teaching art classes. I need a book like this to help me brainstorm project ideas!

  43. Tammy A. says:

    I must have this book. I love to felt and need some new ideas!

  44. Lisa Jordan says:

    This looks fantastic! Why do I need it? Because I need more awesomeness in my life. Plain and simple.

  45. Kendra Skeene says:

    I’m obsessed with the versatility and texture of wool sculture! I’ve done needle felting and felting crochetted wool in the washing machine, but I’m dying to learn more tricks with felt, and would love to learn wet felting.

  46. Ellen Cotter says:

    I need this book so that I can give it to my mother-in-law who has just started to teach herself needle felting and has an amazing talent! Her work is amazing, and it makes her feel so good that this craft is really for her, after years of trying to oil paint and having her projects turn out badly. She is a great influence in my life, and in the lives of my children, and I would love to say thank you by helping her to develop her art.

  47. tim1724 says:

    I started needle felting a year and a half ago.. now I want to branch out into more types of felting..

  48. Rebecca F says:

    I’ve never worked with felt except with the yucky stuff when I was in preschool. I’ve just been getting into fiber arts and I would love a book that has an overview of all things felty! In particular I am interested in making felt softies/dolls and needle felting a tiny yorkie to resemble my tiny dog.

  49. Maddy says:

    I NEED this book because I am a budding felter, and I’m about to have the rug pulled out from under me! I’m moving to a place where I almost certainly will not have access to a washing machine, and I need to expand my bag o’ felting tricks to adapt.

  50. Angela Romero says:

    I would like this book because ever since I started to follow you all on twitter, I covet every single last thing you show me. Coveting is a big no-no, but its ok, I go to confession and I’m willing to say those extra Hail Mary’s to satisfy my crafting habit. Due to the current economical climate I find myself with a lot of time on my hands all of a sudden. And you know that idle hands do the devil’s work. So, I guess what I’m saying is that you should give me a book so I can felt my way back into my Shepherd’s fold instead. Without a book to giude me, any which craft could be my ticket to eternal damnation.
    Thank you.

  51. elissa stebbins says:

    i’ve just started making small forays into the world of felt and this book looks like the perfect guide to help me gather the courage necessary to take on some bigger challenges.
    congratulations on such a huge accomplishment!

  52. joanneklwong says:
    I have lots of left over felt from a donation pillow drive my organization did with an local hospital, it would be great to get some more ideas for further donations!

  53. Christine's Curiosity says:

    This past weekend I had the most magnificent time at the Coggeshell Farm Fiber Festival in Bristol, RI (ON my birthday!). And am absolutely hooked on fibers! I purchased some raw wool and am dying (no pun intended!) to wash it and pull it into yarn or just some gorgeous fiber for felting. I’d love to have some inspiration for the what’s instore for the wool!

  54. heather says:

    Oh, I’ve been looking forward to the release of this book. Betz’s work is so beautiful and clever and felt is a fabulous medium.

  55. kysha plante says:

    I need this book because felting is the one of the few crafts I have been afraid to try.

  56. Naomi says:

    I need this book because I found one empty corner in my apartment that is not yet filled with craft storage. I can’t live with that!

  57. kuroneko says:

  58. Julie says:

    What a great give away!! I would LOVE to win this book – felting is one of the crafts I want to get into but don’t know much about .. this book looks like a great place to start!!
    Julie Edmonds

  59. Lorene says:

    I’d love to see if this book has suggestions for (I guess it’s called?) wet felting. I’m making an afghan that I had originally planned to felt but after running a test sample I’ve changed my mind. For now. Plus I’d love to learn more about the world of needle felting. The work I’ve seen on various blogs has been ever-so-cute!

  60. Ayelet D says:

    I would love to win this book! Felting is my new thing and I have loads of wool just waiting to turn into something…
    This book looks like the thing that would get me started!

  61. mariessa says:

    I need this book because I saw someone felting in a mixed media class I took, and fell in love with the idea. I went out and bought some tools and some fibers… but never figured out how to use them to make anything! now they have been sitting around being useless and bringing me shame. Spring is here and I want to felt up cute summer accessories! That necklace looks soo cute, I want to make and wear it everywhere.

  62. Brooke says:

    There are several reasons why I need this book. I love making arts and crafts, and felting is something that I have never tried before. I try to only give homemade presents as birthday gifts and Christmas presents, and I need some new ideas. I love wearing homemade jewelry, and I would love to make some knickknacks to decorate my college dorm room with. Also, I’m about to be an aunt for the first time, and I’d love to be able to make some cute gifts for my nephew.

  63. Lesley says:

    Oh how I need this book!
    I love felt and keep stashing tons of it but never think of anything creative to do with it so it sits there all lonely among other craft supplies, neglected and sad.
    I need some inspiration and enlightenment! I’ve been dying to try needle felting and fulling but haven’t had any good project ideas or instructions to go by. Thanks :)

  64. Diane K says:

    Why do I need this book??? Because look at that adorable necklace!!!!!!!!!!!! ACK! I MUST HAVE IT!

  65. Amber says:

    Growing up, the only felt I knew of came in pre-cut squares. I recall a few modgepodge Mother’s Day cards put together with a few cut out fun from these squares nicely glued onto the construction paper with white glue.
    But now the world of felt has become so much more than just standard squares in the craft store. But how much and what I’m still trying to grasp and learn. So far the only other window into felting I’ve looked into is needle felting.
    This books seems to cover it all – wet, nuno, fabric, needle and much much more. All in one book? *gasps*
    I’ll cross my fingers and hope I can get an invitation to the felt party.

  66. Sarah (craft n clutter) says:

    Well, the cover shot has me sold! The necklaces are fabulous. Or wouldn’t they look great as a garland around a Christmas tree.

  67. Vicki says:

    I need this book because I’m writing a short story about a sexy crafter called “Felt Up” and I need the resource material.
    Not really, I’d just like to add felt work to my list of crafting abilities. :)

  68. LeahS says:

    I must make that necklace; it’s adorable! Thanks for setting up this giveaway….I’d love to get a copy of this book! Oooh, ooh pick me!

  69. Corvus says:

    I have this project going on where I try to craft octopus (or some other cephalopod) in every crafty medium and technique I can get my hands on. I’m knitting one right now. I have sculpted AND caned octopi from polymer clay. I’ve drawn them (and offered the line art up as free embroidery patterns on my blog), I’ve embrodiered them, and I suspect felt could open up a whole new world of cephalopodean opportunities. A needlefelt octopus? Maybe I could knit and felt an octopus purse? I don’t know; while I know felt is an amazingly versatile medium, I find I’m rather unfamiliar with its various techniques and applications. And that last sentence, right there? That’s why I need this book.

  70. Julia Pineda says:

    Funny enough my best friend is teaching me to needle felt tonight! All I have been thinking about all day is felt and look a felting book. I think that means I win, right? ;)
    Thanks for offering all the give aways.

  71. Isabel says:

    Interesting giveaway .. nice necklace! :)

  72. Theresa says:

    Hello there! I’m currently a college student looking for a way to use up all this colored wool I picked up at a recycling center for art supplies. I’ve never tried needle-felting before, but for the longest time I’ve wanted to learn. All the amazing needle-felted animals I’ve seen on this blog really have inspired me. It’d be wonderful if I could receive this book and start felting! :)

  73. Lo says:

    I always want to try working wiht felt,it seems so simple, yet I always lack inspiration – therefore I need this book to help me!

  74. patita says:

    1. I’d seen that this book was coming out and planned to save my pennies to get it (yes, actual pennies–finances are beyond tight but I have craft supplies)!
    2. Just last night, after seeing some beautiful examples, I was trying to see if I had all the materials for nuno felting on hand.
    3. I’m organizing a needle felting night for my craft group because everyone should experience its stabby stabby fun!
    4. Felting is awesome.

  75. Claire says:

    I would love to have this book. As a weaver and spinner I do occasionally have projects that “fail”…and I keep every piece of felted handwoven material that I have made… and I hate to say it, I have more than a few pieces. Just think… hand felted handwoven and then there are those wool sweaters that I dont wear anymore… my “age” keeps me plenty warm thank you!

  76. Nerd Goddess says:

    I’ve been thinking about felting for awhile now, but I haven’t had the slightest idea where to begin. I think the book would be great for getting me started!

  77. Gina Hart says:

    I would greatly enjoy a copy of Feltique. Last year on a whim I picked up a small purse felting kit, and I fell in love with the craft. I have since made a ‘tag bag’ for my puppy to wear, but I could use some inspiration for new projects and techniques!

  78. thatgrrl says:

    I need this NOW because I’m on vacation so I actually have time to learn how to do more than felting my knitting failures into future afghan squares.

  79. Anna says:

    I loving knitting, crochet, and collecting/sometimes reconstructing wool sweaters…now I just need this book so’s I can get some felting under my belt!

  80. cindy says:

    I need a pick me up these days and it would be lovely to pick up this book! I have used felt a handful of times on my greeting cards and could see great possibilities with some help from this book! Thanks for giving these away! :)

  81. Heide Roland says:

    I have been loving all the Needle Felted Creatures on Etsy and wanted to be able to make my own. Plus this brings be back to childhood when my mom would take me to the Fabric store and let me pick out squares of Felt to cut up at home or even better to make something for CCD out of. Oh! those were the days.

  82. jennie says:

    ooooooh! Well, need is a strong word, but I would like to receive this book because my sister-in-law enjoys needle felting and I would give it to her to encourage her creativity.

  83. Hen says:

    … I am in a complete craft-rut and I reckon this book may introduce me to a whole new genre and give me back some inspiration!

  84. Shana Astrachan says:

    Looks like a great book. I am sure I would love it. I am a jeweler that uses felting along with traditional metal working techniques. I am self taught with felt but would love to learn more and use more in my artwork.
    You can see some examples here:

  85. SReed151 says:

    But I really want it. And since I’m the only crafty person in my little world, all my friends and family NEED me to have it! : )

  86. Sarah says:

    I need this book so I can expand my felt oeuvre to include more than just fulling.

  87. blackmagpie says:

    also i would really like to learn about felt and needle felting. it would be most awsome

  88. michelle says:

    I need this book because I love wool felt in all forms, and I’m always looking to learn something new.

  89. Eilidh says:

    …I’m a poor student, and can’t afford many supplies to Craft with (or much of anything)
    I really want to learn all sorts of Crafts – and Felting seems like it’s a very versatile technique, I’ve seen all sorts of different, beautiful items done with it.
    I also keep seeing this book featured everywhere, and it looks great!
    (Also, it’s my birthday on Friday, so winning this would be an awesome birthday present!)

  90. says:

    I once bought a large bag of colorful fiber from ebay at cost price from a shop that was closing. I thought I’s do something with it, but I have no idea what. And it’s been more than a year. This book. I’m sure it will give me some nice ideas to follow :)

  91. Corey says:

    This book looks amazing, so bright and cheery! I need this book, I’ve just started using felt to create brooches and toys. I have a gorgeous felt bag I got as a gift, I’d love to know how it was made!

  92. Rachel says:

    I need this book because I want to learn how to do needle felting! I’ve done wet felting before, it’s pretty cool! The pictures from this book are so cheery :)

  93. Wendy says:

    I live in Florida, and for the past couple of days it has been pouring rain. This book will do the trick to chase the rainy blues away.

  94. ammi Brooks says:

    I just starting felting.
    I think i am addicted.
    The feel!
    The colors!
    The creativity!
    I need your wonderful book to feed my fabulous habit.
    I love your zany nature!

  95. Amanda Kin says:

    If I don’t get this book, I’m going to be stuck in my poor college student hole and will have even less knowledge of textiles before I go into grad school for it. AND when I’m not immersing myself in my studies, I need to do something crafty to brighten my day:) These projects would be perfect!!

  96. Zhasmene says:

    I love everything about wool and felt. I started knitting about 6 months ago and hand-spinning my own yarn with a drop spindle about 3 months ago. I feel like felting is the next step and this book would be the perfect inspiration.

  97. Sarah says:

    I don’t need this book but I would really, really love it. I would love to expand my felting skills past making beads.

  98. Renee G says:

    I’d like to win this book because I’ve been wanting to try felting, but I just don’t know where to start.

  99. Janel says:

    All of the photos in this post are beautiful. The cover necklaces would certainly catch my eye in a bookstore!

  100. Morgen says:

    I don’t NEED this book. In fact, I have never felted a day in my life. But, when I read about how inexpensive, yet useful items can be made using felting, I thought of something great: taking skills from a book that was won, and using them to make scarves/bags/toys and donating these items to shelters.
    I don’t expect to win, I am merely posting this idea in hopes that people will see this, and act on my idea in their own hometowns.

  101. Lara says:

    I need this book because I’ve been working with commercial felt for about a year and, although I love it dearly, I’m running out of inspiration. I need some new ideas! I’m very intimidated by wet felting and needle felting, so I also need something to help me overcome my terror…

  102. Lily says:

    I need it because I have a felt fetish. Seriously. :x

  103. norichan says:

    I need this book because I have waaay too much fiber and not enough time to spin. :op

  104. Eleanor (undeadgoat) says:

    I need this book because I want to expand my craft horizons beyond knitting, and because I really love wool and want to understand it better. I haven’t really liked the felted knitting I’ve done so far, and I want to change that.

  105. Mary says:

    hmm felt oh soo soft
    new techniques to try can’t wait
    I am addicted!

  106. Wendy says:

    I need this book because I’ve been *dying* to learn to felt. Please pick me!

  107. Bette says:

    someone sent me a pack of felt. made few little foodie things. my daughter loved it! i need this book to create more lovely pieces with felt.

  108. megsny says:

    I need this book, because a) I love felt, b) I thought I was supercool as a kid, because I had those little wool comb things and could make felt at home, though I never had wool, and my combs were gnarly, c) I am trying to improve my sewing, and felt is so kindly and forgiving d) I agreed to make craft projects for a number of friends, some of them facebook people I haven’t seen in years, and I need inspiration and instruction.
    And I will write you a little update about felt felt felt after reading the book and going to the awesome felt show at Cooper Union.

  109. Erin says:

    I need this book because I all my felting attempts have failed. My most recent victims of bad felting technique were my daughter’s white cloth diapers. I thought to myself, I wash them in hot water, what’s the big deal to throw in a black sweater? Okay, so I may really need a book on what to do when common sense flies out the window, but I’m sure this one can help too!

  110. Yetta says:

    Yep. I need this book because it’s fabulous. I would love to try some of the fancy projects to spice up my other monochromatic world of black-everything-so-the-kids-can’t-dirty-them.

  111. daria says:

    I need this book because I am going to be teaching an after-school felting class at my kids’ elementary school this fall, & I am busily building my felting library as I plan the curriculum. I’ve been doing some simple wet felting projects in my daughter’s kindergarten class, & seeing how much the kids love it has gotten me excited about figuring out some super-cool projects for next year…the practicing & project-making I have to do on the way is an excellent bonus for me, right?

  112. Emily Katyryniuk says:

    I am an avid crafter and I was recently laid off from my job of almost 3 years at a TV station. I was forced to move back in with my parents and collect my meager unemployment checks that barely cover the bills. I need this book because felt is a very affordable fabric and the amount of projects that can be done with it are endless. I’d like to expand my crafting abilities in hopes that I will be able to sell some of my projects to bring in some income so I can continue going to school. I hope you will consider me. Thank you so much.

    I have been teaching fiber arts (knitting, weaving) to the kids in our arts program for two years. Last year I fell in love with felting – especially needle felting. Then the kids fell in love. They BEGGED me to teach them. No, no. Too dangerous. Too hard. They wouldn’t hear it. Sooooooooo …..I gave in. Now even the 6 year olds (yes, 6) are turning out Ggloriously creative pouches, beads, wristbands and even 3-D animals. Please help me! I need more to teach them. More ideas. More techniques. Help me keep the spark alive. The kids will thank you.

    first: because the technique is adorable
    and I don`t have anywere to learn, I live in sudamenrica
    in Santiago, Chile, and the book never came to
    this country, so I have to make do with videos
    on youtube :s.
    second: because I have a project to make wild
    animals into needle felting and all my felting attempts have failed.
    and third: because we really I used a lot, would
    be a great help as a tutorial for new techniques,
    since this is unknown where I live, here comes
    across years later.
    Sorry if my English is a bit rustic, lack of practice XD
    greetings from Chile
    Saludos :)

  115. Katrin says:

    I need this book, because I have never worked with felt before and this would be such an amazing introduction to a new craft!

  116. Erin Ferree says:

    I got very excited by Moxie’s demonstration of felting at the last Maker Faire – and I bought all the supplies I could get my hands on. But now, I’m feeling a bit confused and uninspired – I don’t know what to do with all that great stuff. And it’s sitting there, in its’ bag, mocking me…

  117. Aneesah says:

    I need this because felt (the sheet kind) has somehow become a craft trend in my country and it’ll be great to see what other creations I could make. Felting’s also another thing that I’ve come across a lot but never managed to try out.

  118. Sarra Eaton says:

    felt makes my heart sing. it floats my boat. its my cherry on top. its the swirl in my curl.

  119. Daffodilangel says:

    I would love to have this book to teach me all the various methods of felting and then I would be able to craft many beautiful items. Felting is fabulous. Thanks for the opportunity to win. D/A – down under

  120. Anne says:

    I am looking forward to finding out new ways to work with and create with my favorite material. I also want to learn to make my own felt.

  121. Maclizzie says:

    Felt is my absolute FAVORITE fabric which is just as well since I hate hand-washing clothes. So please help me find a new purpose in life for my stack of shrunken sweaters!

  122. Kate Hill says:

    Everything I try to make out of felt ends up looking like a 2 year old made it. I’m tired of feeling like a crafting failure. Please, please, help me….

  123. Debby says:

    I’ve tried fulling, but I would love to learn other ways of creating felt in its many forms.

  124. Linda says:

    I love the felt, this book would be an opportunity to learn new techniques and create gifts for my family.

  125. dtappin says:

    I’m just learning and this book would be a great tool
    to help me along my way! I’m a lifelong crafter and felting
    is one of the items on my how-to-do wishlist! ;-)

  126. Amanda Allgood says:

    I’ve tried felting a couple of times, but had mixed results. Would like to learn more about the process. And I just love craft books.

  127. Willawill says:

    I’ve taken a couple of classes on wet felting and I’m eager to learn more!!

  128. anne says:

    there once was a felter in brooklyn
    whose pulse was stirred up by a book when
    she checked her fave blog
    and typed a quick ‘logue
    in attempt to win fiber instruction

  129. sunasmyblanket says:

    This giveaway is fantastic!! I would love this book… I have been needlefelting for the past year as well as attempting to wet felt some things… I definitely need some technique suggestions… and some inspiration never hurt anyone! The pictures look a-maze-ing. I would definitely put on that necklace right now if I could.

  130. msless says:

    I have a newly discovered passion for felt but a lack of knowledge of technique. This book looks like an excellent guide into this wondrous world.

  131. Lauren says:

    I would love this book because I’m looking for a new crafting medium, and the samples of the items included in the book look amazing!
    Thanks for the opportunity!!

  132. majeral says:

    I have been watching felting take off ,every were I look people are felting. I need this book to keep up with the young folks. (By the way it makes me feel good to see so many young people do some thing creative with there hands and minds.) I have been crafting for over 60 years. Never did felting.

  133. Ice Cream says:

    I would LOVE to get this book. I blame Craftzine fro my new obsession with felt. My poor husband has no clue what has gotten into me because I can’t stop talking about it.

  134. Chelsea says:

    I would love to win this book so I could do some new felting projects!

  135. Amy B. says:

    Wow, could I use this book! I have a huge stash of felted sweaters dying to be something fun. Also 3 children constantly on the lookout for fun projects…..thanks for a great giveaway!

  136. Marya says:

    I haven’t really begun to delve into the world of felting, but I really want to! And with such cool projects to work on, I think this book will really help me learn to love to felt.

  137. Anna says:

    I love felting! This book seems like it has some truly unique projects, and I would love to check it out. Thanks!

  138. yankie says:

    I love felt and wool and have started learning/teaching myself about wet and needle felting.
    I have some needles now and some wool tops.I’ve been to a workshop and I’ve made a couple of small things but want to get better!
    Slowly but surely I go from charity shop to charity shop in search of sweaters to felt.
    It’s a wonderful meidum & I would LOVE this book to take me further! Thanks for the chance to win!

  139. Chloe says:

    I felted my very first purse last week and now I’m obsessed!! I love the look, I love it’s texture! I love that it shrunk before my very eyes! (Can you tell I’m excited? :-)
    I need this book to feed my obsession. Um.. on second thought, maybe you shouldn’t give me the book… ;-)
    P.S. I love your blog and read it every day, I’ve found so many (too many) interesting projects in it, it’s such a lovely resource. Keep up the good work!

  140. Priz says:

    I love to craft and I’ve tried almost all. haven’t tried felting because I find it intimidating, yeah, I know. I lack of funds to attend a formal workshop, as a matter of fact, I am self taught in every crafting technique I know. I have to specially thank this blog that keeps feeding me with new ideas, and this great giveaway.
    It would be great if I could have a copy of it to expand my crafting horizons, the first thing I would do is the cover project but as the neckline of a sweater
    Good luck to all :D

  141. Denise says:

    I would love to win this post and share the book with as many people as possible.

  142. Joanna says:

    For me, wet felting was love at first sight. I loved it the very first time I tried it, even though I seldom have the patience to do large projects. I’ve been dying to try needle felting, and would love to learn to do more with craft felt from the store and with fulling crocheted wool yarn. This book sounds wonderful!

  143. Julie says:

    I’m always in need for ideas and inspiration, and I’d love to try the projects in your book!

  144. jashleyslc says:

    I really love the discovery process involved when I knit or crochet something and full it in the washer–it’s like watching a caterpillar turn into a butterfly–and I would really like to try other felting projects!

  145. MelodyJ says:

    This seem like a fun new craft challenge for the summer. Congrats, on the book.

  146. Kristy says:

    Oh I’ve just loved the extra Feltique posts and video you’ve added – make me want – no – NEED this book even more. I can’t stop thinking about it – it has my creative juices flowing just from the few bits you’ve shown us (particularly Karen Thurman’s Dot Scarflett). Off to the shops this weekend to get supplies I think…

  147. anjali9 says:

    What a GORGEOUS book – and a great way to use up some of my ever-growing wool yarn stash – This would be a great craft to do with friends . . . I’m setting up a summer craft night at my apartment, and this book would be such an inspiration, especially for the friends who complain that crafts are too hard, or that they’re not creative enough!

  148. Theresa says:

    I’d love a chance to win.

  149. Emory says:

    I would love to learn how to felt, especially now that I’ve seen how many beautiful things can be made with the technique! This book would be the perfect way for me to begin.

  150. kat says:

    I’ve never felted before, but that scarf looks lovely enough to get me started!

  151. D. Burgos says:

    from After seeing all the wonderful projects on your site created from felt, my interest was piqued! Seeing one book compiling all sorts of information and projects on the myriad ways to felt and utilize felt was like having a wish granted before you made it!

  152. Samantha says:

    This book looks awesome! I have been admiring projects made from felting over the past few months and I think it’s time to explore and try it on my own. I’d love a copy of this book. =)

  153. Lauren says:

    I just got my first mini set of roving and felting needles, and I had no idea what to make or how to make it. Then I saw the photos from this book and now I want to make everything in it!

  154. Lolly says:

    I would really really really LOVE to have a copy of this book. I am a new felter and am always inspired by new projects!! The book looks fabulous and I can’t wait to get my hands on it!!

  155. Jessica T says:

    I fell in love with wool and felt while working as a teacher’s aide at a Waldorf school a few years back. I love sewing with felt and needle felting.

  156. Monica says:

    I want to learn how to felt and this book seems to be ideal!!

  157. bitessa says:

    I am inspiration starved and need to get out of my crafting funk. This book might help with that.

  158. nesa says:

    I tried needle felting and wet felting, is so much fun as it would give you 3D effect. But I would love to have this book to learn more of felt crafting.

  159. fussyprincess says:

    I have recently discovered needle felting and love it! I made all the women in my family needle felted Easter treats and I am totally addicted! I would love to win this book.

  160. fussyprincess says:

    I have have found that there are just not enough projects books about needle felting yet. I’m glad this is coming out.

  161. kim says:

    I need this book — I couldn’t make it to a felting workshop hosted by the Craft Mafia at my local library yesterday because I’m stuck in bed with pneumonia. If I had this book, I could teach myself!

  162. Vickie Taton says:

    I need this book because I have two BIG bags of sheep’s wool from the local 4H kids and want to put all of it to good use. Perhaps even teach the 4H girls about carding and felting and dyeing… then they’ll want to keep their big bags of wool!

  163. Claudia says:

    I need this book because there are so many different projects from different artists in this book that makes it extremely interesting. Want to try all of them!

  164. sam says:

    i could justify owning this book based solely on how lovely the photos and projects are. pure eye candy. it’s just icing on the cake that i have more wool than should be legal and a love of dyeing it and felting it.

  165. Jeni Little says:

    My life has been hard lately. My knitting/stitching/composing has been a life saver. I have practiced colour and texture therapy to get through – but this book would see/inspire me to heal further. Some of the artists are among my very dear favorites.
    It is a beautiful publication!

  166. Diane says:

    Feltique c’est magnifique, and I would much appreciate this book for glorious inspiration.

  167. emevans says:

    I would love to win this book! I studied felting in college, but it was just the basics and not needle felting! i would love to learn the needle felting technique!
    plus my husband says i need to win this books so it saves him some money! :) Im not sure how that is though cause ill have to go buy some wool!

  168. Christie says:

    I just discovered this entry 5 minutes after its closing. But, no matter, it looks like a very fun idea book as well as how-to book. I am still teaching myself to wet-felt and loving every minute of it. And for anyone who is interested in seeing what can be done with felt (especially if you have lots of people to help you :)), the Cooper-Hewitt in NYC is having a fabulous show that I just saw last week.
    I am so glad I found your book and your blog. I am currently gobbling up anything and everything trying to learn all the different possibilities of what I call “painting with fiber”. Thanks so much!

  169. Rachell says:

    I would love to have this book to learn some new techniques. I would love to learn about new and exciting ways to use felt.

  170. Luciana says:

    Because I live in Argentina (south america) and there is not books like this here!!!!
    I love craft things!!!!
    I love this blog!
    pleaseee!!!! i´d like to win!!!!!

  171. teoco says:

    I just ordered this book – I’m looking forward to making some beautiful things.
