|Description||Felt is a beautiful material to work with. Soft, natural and highly tactile, it is relatively cheap to buy, is widely available in a huge range of colours, and is very easy to work with. It has become a popular material for all sorts of consumer goods, including jewellery, toys and Christmas decorations. The twenty projects in this book include a range of decorations suitable for Christmas, including hanging tree decorations, a Christmas wreath, an advent calendar garland, free-standing felt ornaments, a Christmas cottage storage box and a bottle gift bag. The designs have a fresh, contemporary look that will appeal to a young audience as well as more traditional crafters, and all the projects are suitable for beginners as well as more experienced sewers. The easy-to-make pieces use pre-bought felt ( wet felting or needlefelting is involved) and include step-by-step instructions, lists of the materials and tools needed, and a beautiful photograph of the finished piece. Templates are provided where required, and the basic techniques and stitches required are included at the start of the book.|

Corinne makes regular appearances on Create & Craft TV and lives in Yorkshire with her partner, their three children and two cats.|
