Description

Often thought of as a practical material, felt can be surprisingly versatile and even poetic. With handmade felted fabrics, subtle variations in colour, texture and volume can be achieved: threads and fibres merge almost magically to form new motifs that can then be enlivened by embroidered or crocheted details.

Here, Françoise Tellier-Loumagne takes an original approach to the world of feltmaking, finding design inspiration in calm morning skies, spectacular sunsets and brilliant firework displays. The book includes basic techniques that can be used to create felted fabrics from scratch, such as needle-felting and tufting, along with imaginative ideas for ready-made felt.

With a little artistic guidance, clouds across the moon can be turned into an eye-catching necklace, or a stormy sky may inspire a striking scarf or cushion cover.

Illustrated with hundreds of images, this book will be a treasure trove for anyone interested in original textile design.
