Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Wool Toys & Friends: Step-by-Step Instructions for Needle-Felting Fun. Creative Pub: Quayside. 2010. 128p. illus. ISBN 978-1-58923-506-9. $19.99. FIBER CRAFTSThis collection of cheery, intricate felted toys focuses on needle-felting techniques but also includes some basic wet felting. The clear, easy-to-follow directions are accompanied by photographs, so crafters can see what the project should look like at every step--essential for three-dimensional projects such as these. Sharp's technique, especially with faces, is painterly, and the attention to detail in the patterns is extraordinary. These may be designed as toys, but they are also lovely as decorative objects, and many are well within the reach of ambitious beginners. - Library Journal, August 2010
