When I received this book from the publisher and opened it I was very impressed that the first few pages in this book is autobiographical. most books we read give us little information about the authors and now I feel as if I know This author. Salley Mavor takes us on a journey from her childhood making doll clothes with her mom in about her grandma’s treasures of bits and pieces of fabric, buttons, threads and numerous other items that she uses today in her creations of the wee folk. The illustrations in this book are charming and the instructions are clear so you can complete your first project in an hour or two. One of the things about these types of projects is that they are completely portable so you can take him from your easy chair or your worktable to your bed while you watch TV. Salley has illustrated a number of storybooks and one is more extraordinary than the next. The reviews on Amazon about this book are fun to read and not one reviewer gave it a low score. The price of the book is affordable and the cost of the materials you will need is minimal. What better time of the year to think of wee folks with St. Patrick’s Day only a few weeks away. Salley is an amazing artist with a vivid imagination and I’m sure all you felters will love this book. Take trip over to Salley Mavor’s Wee Folk Studio and see all the wonderful things she does and creates.
