I have a love affair with felt you guys. It is so outrageously soft, and easy to craft with and oh so pretty. So a month or so when I was contacted by Chronicle Books about reviewing the newest book from Amy Palanjian I jumped at it.
The book is called So Pretty! Felt and I’m in love.
It’s full of 24 “simple, yet elegant” projects – which is one reason I love it. I’m a sucker for simple and elegant. I seriously loved every project in the book and couldn’t wait to start on one. So I didn’t.
I had been meaning to make my daughter a bow to match her favorite Sunday dress and figured this was the perfect chance. I pulled out some 100% heathered wool felt that I had in my stash and some embroidery floss and used one of the projects for inspiration. I put mine on a bobby pin instead of a headband.
It was so fun and, like they said, simple. And there is such a great range of projects featured in the book. From hair accessories to an adorable pin cushion to cupcake toppers & buntings it’s all in there.
