Sue Pearl introduces a beguiling menagerie of comical creatures, which can be simply made using pipe cleaners, wool, felting materials and an assortment of funky embellishments. From stripey-legged birds to spikey porcupines, crazy cats and beautiful butterflies, all Sue's fabulous friends are wet felted and decorated with needlefelt shapes, beads and buttons.
In this fun-filled book, Sue explains everything you need to know to get started, with easy-to-follow instructions on making flat felt and pre-felt. The projects follow on with clear step-by-step photographs and a wildly colourful selection of strange and wonderful animals.
