Simply Felt

Simply Felt 20 Easy and Elegant Designs in Wool by Margaret Docherty and Jayne Emerson Natural, tough, and beautiful?felt is an extraordinary textile. Using natural woolen fibers hand-rubbed with water, you can create a durable, versatile fabric for making a wonderful collection of garments and home accessories. Best of all, felt never frays. Authors Margaret Docherty, an expert felt maker and teacher, and Jayne Emerson, a textile designer, have teamed up to present the fundamentals of felting: choosing fibers and colors, making flat felt and boiling felt, and stitching felt. They also cover the more advanced process of inlaying other fibers to vary felt design and texture. The felting techniques are demonstrated with 20 beautiful projects in a range of contemporary colors; projects include a cozy cloche hat, a charming child's jacket, warm slippers, delicate scarves, square and inlayed throw pillows, and an exquisite, long-lasting rug. Each project is presented with simple, step-by-step instructions and illustrations, and offers alternative samples and suggestions that help you to create your own designs. Now you can bring the highly sought-after handcrafted style of felt into your wardrobe and home d?cor-this book promises to make it simple, and oh, so beautiful. Margaret Docherty is a fiber artist who has taught felt making, rug making, and vegetable dyeing for the past twelve years from her studio at Ruskin Mill Centre for Cultural Development in Nailsworth, Gloucestershire, and on the Greek island of Syros. She draws inspiration from her travels aboard and from the time she has spent living in Asia and the Middle East. Margaret's work has been exhibited both locally and in London. She lives in Nailsworth, England. Jayne Emerson is an embroidery and textile designer whose designs sell to a wide range of internationally renowned fashion houses, including Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, Marc Jacobs, and Louis Vuitton. She is the designer and co-founder of the UK fashion label Salvage Salvage. Jayne lives in Elkstone, Gloucestershire, England.
