My Review: What a fun way to create toys and useful items for children! This book starts by showing you how to create your own felted wool fabric. With some raw wool, a few tools (one of which is bubble wrap), and eighteen photographs to show the process, the book clearly explains how to make felted fabric. At the end of the book there is a page of resources for the raw wool if it is not readily available. Of course, you can also purchase the felt to make the designs in the book.

For babies, there are patterns for items like balls, blocks, pillows, cars, a mobile and much more. For older children there are bags, boxes, a floor runner, and toys. There are big beautiful and colorful pictures for each of the projects. The projects would not only be fun to make, but also fun to work on with your children or grandchildren.
