UK-based sisters Dace and Balchin (coauthors of the award-winning Needle Felting for Beginners: How To Sculpt with Wool) offer a history of dolls and needle felting, which transforms wool into 3D objects by using a barbed needle. The crafters’ book describes the different types of wool readers can use and where to find it, and they explain how to use the necessary tools. Both experienced needle felt dollmakers and those who may be exploring this as a new hobby will find the step-by-step directions with photos easy to follow. The book includes 10 projects—ranging from sculpted fairies to customized figures—each with illustrated step-by-step instructions. There’s also a “Help Me” reference section.
VERDICT A top resource for needle felting and a wonderful addition to any crafts collection.
