Description

A unique craft book in two parts – learn to make a felted farm and enjoy an illustrated story!
The crafting section contains step-by-step instructions, complete with beautiful colour photographs, showing how to make an entire farm with a range of needle-felted animals, people and buildings.

The illustrated story takes those characters, animals and settings to tell a tale of a fun-filled day on the farm.

Crafters may choose to make a couple of animals to supplement an existing farm set, but the entire farm is a wonderful project for an intergenerational group. Children can make simple items and animals, while adults can tackle more intricate projects.

Throughout, experienced felter Rotraud Reinhard provides tips and tricks for working with felt and bringing colour and life to your farm.
