so pretty! felt May 10, 2013
Chronicle Books recently sent me a copy of So Pretty! Felt, the lovely new book by Amy Palanjian, and I’m excited to be today’s co-stop on the blog tour! I love sewing and crafting with felt, and this collection of projects is a pretty mix of accessories, jewelry, ornaments, and decorations.
The book is a gorgeous, colorful hardback with beautiful photos – Amy curated 24 sewing, embroidery, and felting projects, two each by 12 guest designers. The book is as much inspiration as it is hands-on instructions, and I immediately found a few projects I want to make! I especially love the Floral Clutch on the cover – it was made by Jill Collier.
Each contributing designer has an opening page with her bio and lots of other details about her projects, which is a nice touch.
I also loved this stylish Snowflake Necklace by Yoko Vega – amazing that it’s made with just a few strips of felt.
I asked my five-year-old daughter, Pearl, to choose her favorite project and she loved the Cupcake Toppers that Stephanie Monroe created!
I’ll definitely be making some for her next birthday party… maybe spelling P-E-A-R-L-! or S-I-X-!
Don’t miss the rest of the blog tour – there are lots more reviews and giveaways to check out. Thanks so much to Lorraine at Chronicle for sending me my copy of So Pretty! Felt!
Tomorrow’s stop is at Mod Podge Rocks – happy weekend, everyone!
