It has been over a year since Annie and Lyn allowed me the privilege of hosting a giveaway for their eBook “CREATING FELT ARTWORK” wet Felting Tutorial eBook PDF is a step-by-step visual guide with color photos and clear instructions. The giveaway was so popular that 93 of you entered, so here is your second chance to win one of their lovely books because they are offering another giveaway. Annie and Lyn did an awesome job creating this eBook. The pictures are stunning and the instructions are clear and easy to follow. Some of our best felters live in the UK and these lovely ladies are no exception. The ladies take us on a journey of creating felt artwork using the techniques they prefer, but they assure us that you will develop your own way of doing things once you get going. They choose not to include the history of felting (due to the fact that so many before them have explained the details in their books) so they just get straight down to the fun stuff and simply show their creative process, the materials they use, and lots of ideas to inspire you. You will find so much inspiration in this book and in no time you will have your own special designs. This book is for beginners as well as seasoned felters looking for new techniques. There is a tutorial at the end of the book on how to make felt and the items you will need. Annie, and her mum, Lyn of ‘rosiepink’ both live on the South Coast of England. They love textiles and fibers and have a passion for felt artwork. Stitching on felt gives such beautiful textures so they combine hand and free machine embroidery with our felt making to create wall art. Annie writes this occasional blog to share some of the things they create and some of the lessons they learn along the way. Please feel free to comment on any post – they would love to hear from you whatever your interest in their blog may be. This site is about handmade felt from merino wool with an emphasis on felt art. It’s colorful! There are free tutorials, including one for beginners to felt making and one for children. The posts are interesting and if anyone wants to take their interest a step further, there is a high quality, 60 page eBook available from the site. ‘Creating Felt Artwork’ is a 60 page eBook written by Annie & Lyn. Inside they share all of the lessons they have learned about making felt artwork, and they hope you will find it an interesting and useful guide on your own felt making journey. It is available to purchase, and instantly download, for £7.99 about $13.29 US, there is no shipping charge because it is emailed to you for instant gratification.
