After the success of Making Needle Felted Animals, Steffi Stern brings her inimitable energy and enthusiasm to her second book Making Simple Needle Felts. Intended as a back-to-basics guide to making needle-felted objects, each project includes clear steps and photos, and Steffi also instructs the reader on basic techniques that will help them to make many other projects as well.
The book contains chapters on techniques, materials, tools and accessories. There is a chapter on fairies, angels, and people, and the rest of the book is organised by season; it brims with all kinds of treasures, such as pumpkins, gnomes, strawberries, baubles, birds, bees, snails, flowers, the Nativity, mice, and mermaids. All the projects in the book are doable for a beginner, with some for little fingers (no needles involved), for beginners, as well as those who have more experience. Steffi’s advice is, “Have a go!”
