You can do an awful lot of stuff with felt. Our monthly writer Moxie has shown us how you can create all kinds of items using needle-felting, and in Big Little Felt Universe Jeanette Lim shows us how you can make fun, felty versions of everyday objects. It’s great stuff!
After a quick explanation of the basics the book gets stuck into showing you how to take felt and turn it into cakes, computers, cell phones or chopping boards. There are twelve sets of felty scenarios you can create – my personal favourites are the Office set (laptop, mouse and such like) and the house plants.
Jeanette has done a terrific job of creating simplified versions of familiar objects (from simple things like slices of banana, through to complex pieces like power drills) that can be constructed with a needle and thread. You can’t fail to be impressed as you flick through the book and see the pieces that you will be taught how to make. The book is packed with detailed photos, templates and instructions to take you through each step of the construction process – you can’t go wrong!
I think this is a great book as you will learn so many skills that by the time you finish the book you’ll be able to make felted versions of anything you can think of! Millennium Falcon anyone?
