Book Felt It! Stitch It! Fabulous! (English) /1pc
: Creative Wearables from Flea Market Finds
This is not a knitting book, although it looks like one.
Using a technique she calls "fast felting," the author turns old, discarded sweaters found at flea markets, thrift stores, or even the back of the closet into clothes and accessories that look handmade.
And at first glance, you would think this was just another felted knitting book.
The projects are contemporary, creative, and stylish.
The process--shrinking old sweaters to create felted materials--saves both time and money, for quick results.
Bieber covers every aspect of the process, from finding appropriate feltable garments to arranging the pattern pieces to maximize the details of the felted materials.
The author assumes some basic sewing experience, but the projects can be completed using either a sewing machine or by hand.
Most helpful are the sections on finding the correct sweater and photographs illustrating the before and after of different types of knits so readers can see what kind of results to expect.
The projects have strong appeal to knitters and sewers as well as the reuse, recycle, and repurpose craft movement.
