From the Author
This is a hobby that is suitable for children aged five
and upwards (with the help of a grown-up), and believe me,
felting using a felting needle is not just for girls - boys
can also get involved. The important thing here is patience,
interest and fine motor skills rather than age and gender.
This book contains in-depth descriptions of the basic techniques
and a range of patterns for ingenious model figures.
You can follow the patterns as closely as you like, or you
can adapt the designs by using different colors or making
them in different sizes or in different proportions. You
can also make different ears, eyes, etc. and the figures
can be made smaller or bigger than those in the book. It
is quicker to make a small figure than a large one, though
you can put more details on a large figure. In short, it
is up to your own creativity and imaginations. Have fun!
