Making Feltie Friends
Felties: How to Make 18 Cute and Fuzzy Friends by Nelly Pailloux (published by Penguin Books in 2009) is a fantastic craft book. As the title suggests, it provides the instructions for a range of felties. They are just adorable.
For those of you that do not know what felties are, they are cute little creatures made from felt. They are stuffed and can be embellished with beads, ribbon and embroidery. This book contains patterns for feltie friends including a sailor puppy, samurai cat and hoodie wolf. I have made a few including the babushka and chihuahua as shown in the image above. The great thing about making things from a book like this is that you do not have to make your toy exactly as prescribed. You can change the colour of felt or the embellishments. Go on, make one.
