Book review: Felt with love by Madeleine Millington

'Felt with love: Felt hearts, flowers and much more' by Madeleine Millington, published by Search Press, is a colourful guide to working with thick luxurious wool felt.

It's a perfect beginner book for those interested in starting to sew with felt and will also interest those who wish to hone their craft skills.

There are four pages about materials and the tools you will need, two pages about dyeing fabric, six pages about different stitches (nine stitches in total) and two pages about adding embellishments. There are ten pages of actual size templates at the back of the book.

There are 15 projects in total, three of which are festive, including snowflakes and a festive star.

The quality of the projects is very high and I would say there are very original designs in here like the angel garland (pictured above), the four seasons wall hanging and the princess and the pea (also pictured above). They are longer projects and would require more skill but would look very different to any other projects from a felt book.

Madeleine sells patterns in her shop online and blogs - at Madeleine She is inspired by Medieval, Elizabethan and Folk art and teaches regularly.

The book was released earlier this month and is available to buy on the Search Press website.

Thank you once again to Search Press for sending me this lovely book to review.
