    1. Checked out this book from my local library. What a cool book! I used to make felt tea party hats and I am thinking about starting back and I loved this book. 500 felt objects or rather drool worthy art and pictures that should definitely inspire any artist or make artists out of the fans of this book who just love to look at the pics!

    2. Wow. Just amazing. Gorgeous works by very talented artists. Some use commercial felt, some start with a sheep, and every possibility in between.

    3. This book beautifully showcases the versatility of felt. Amazing scarves, hangings, chairs, clothes, etc.
