Little Felted Animals: Create 16 Irresistible Creatures with Simple Needle-Felting Techniques Reviews
This book is great for a beginner. It is simple, not lots of gratuitously complicated terminology like some books and shows you the basics of technique and form. I'm not an idiot, I'm a grad student for heaven's sake, but when I'm new at something I want to be started gently and not scared off by too much history and having to learn a whole new vocabulary. This was perfect. I was able to create this little cat like the one on the cover on my first try! Now I've moved on to coming up with my own animals and experimenting with color. Thank you for the inspiration and instruction Ms. Horvath!
I am new to needle felting. The cat I made and included a picture for was my second project. I feel that it had easy, clear to understand directions, with pictures of every step. A lot of nice pictures of completed designs as well. I think it is a great stepping stone for beginners, though if you have more experience it might be too basic with techniques you already know. If you like the looks of the designs though I say go for it.
Lately, I've been researching various crafts and hobbies to learn what is involved in them. Finding helpful information for beginning needle felting proved to be a bit more of a challenge than originally expected. Fortunately, Amazon offers interesting collection of sellers who provide products for needle felting, and a few do have some items to guide the absolute beginner. I happened upon this book, and it looked quite friendly, so I purchased it hoping it would give me insight into the craft... something besides twee flowers and appliqué for clothing, something closer to sculpting with wool rather than flat design. I also wanted something that described basic tools, materials, and techniques. I wanted Needle Felting 101! :) And I got it with this purchase!
I had never done needle felting before, but love to work with fabrics and sculpt dolls from polymer clay. I used tips from this book and the book, "Felt Dogs" by Mitsuki Hoshi. I did a little 3-d portrait of my mini schnauzer with her butt up and head down, (her "I wanna play" pose), and am quite pleased with my first attempt. Last night I almost gave up but this morning I fixed it. Between the two books I did it! Its fun to learn how to do something new at the age of 60. I do need to learn to hold the needles straight as I broke every needle I bought. I only stabbed myself twice, though.
No detail, no techniques. Terrible book. Doesn't explain anything into detail or technique. Basically says "shape into a cat" and includes a far away picture
This is a delightfully illustrated book with artistically designed, realistic looking little 3-D animals to create using wool roving and the needle felting technique. It is very well thought out, illustrated with easy to understand and follow step by step instructions. It comes with patterned drawings for sizing the proportions on each part of each animal. It contains photos of each and every step of the process. After purchasing 5 felting crafters books from the internet, this is by far the best book of it's kind that I've seen. I am a beginning needle felter, and I made a beautiful little cat on my first attempt! I am inspired to make a lot more! My friends want me to make thier pets from felted wool after seeing my little miniature 'Simon'. I would definitely recommend this book!
Excellent book with clear instructions that are easy to follow. So fasr I have made the bear, a penguin, two cats and a dalmation. One of the cats I made half size by eyeballing, and its head ended up looking more like a dog. I used a copier to reduce the pattern for the dalmation to half size before starting it and the dalmation turned out very cute. Half sizing makes them just right for a 1:12 dollhouse. My granddaughter loves them!
I wouldn't say this book is good for beginners. You do need to have some basic felting knowhow. There are drawings to show how big to make the basic shapes. The animals are smaller then in some of the other books I have but once you know the basic you can adjust or you could scan them to adjust the size. There isn't a lot of detail to the projects so if you want more detail you will need to look for pictures in books or on the net.
