This collection of cheery, intricate felted toys focuses on
needle-felting techniques but also includes some basic wet felting.
The clear, easy-to-follow directions are accompanied by
photographs, so crafters can see what the project should look like
at every step-essential for three-dimensional projects such as
these. Sharp's technique, especially with faces, is painterly, and
the attention to detail in the patterns is extraordinary. These may
be designed as toys, but they are also lovely as decorative
objects, and many are well within the reach of ambitious beginners.
