I have been drooling over this book for a long time, and now it’s mine. Needle felting always seemed nice but this book has really made me want to do actually do needle felting. My favorite pattern in the book is the Willamette wrap, because it is stunning and so geographically appropriate. The wrap is knit and then the collar is needle felted with the same color roving.
The next most inspiring pattern is the Market bag, I love that the wool is needle felted into a print on the fabric. Obviously I will never find this print to recreate the bag but that opens up the possibilities of so many different kinds of bags depending on the selected print.
Needle felting is in the September 2009 Martha Stewart magazine too. Of course she has a pretty wooden handled needle.
