Happy Felt Books

One of the beauties of being ‘temporarily without children’ is the freedom to browse as long as I want at Kinokuniya, the Japanese bookstore located inside the mega Uwajimaya in the International District. I picked up this little felting booklet last week (ISBN4-277-49005-0).

If you ever been tempted to try felting, but weren’t sure where to start, pick up this book. For only $3.95, you can try several very simple projects.

This little lily pin is felted in several layers around a stone. Each layer is snipped open to create the petals.

These beauties couldn’t be simpler: three little pieces of flat felt are cut into circles and then sewed together with a couple of beads.

I haven’t decided what to call this one because it doesn’t resemble anything botanical, but it was fun to make all those little balls.
