Felt Christmas Decorations
The 20 projects in this book include a range of decorations suitable for Christmas that are made out of felt—a soft, natural, and highly tactile fiber that is relatively cheap to buy, is widely available in a huge range of colors, and is very easy to work with. There are designs for hanging tree decorations, a Christmas wreath, an advent calendar garland, free-standing felt ornaments, a Christmas cottage storage box, and a bottle gift bag, just to name a few. The projects have a fresh, contemporary look and are suitable for beginners as well as more experienced sewers. The easy-to-make pieces use prepurchased felt so no wet felting or needle felting is involved, and include step-by-step instructions, lists of the materials and tools needed, and a beautiful photograph of the finished piece. The basic techniques and stitches used are included at the beginning of the book and templates are provided where required.
