Making Simple Needle Felts by Steffi Stern
The book contains chapters on techniques, materials, tools and accessories. There is a chapter on fairies, angels, and people, and the rest of the book is organised by season; it brims with all kinds of treasures, such as pumpkins, gnomes, strawberries, baubles, birds, bees, snails, flowers, the Nativity, mice, and mermaids. All the projects in the book are doable for a beginner.
Some aimed at little fingers (no needles involved) and beginners, and some are aimed at those with more experience. Steffi's advice is to have a go!
