Take everyday clothing, shoes, and hats to a new level with Sheila Smith's fabulous, mess-free felting techniques. Smith opens up a range of felt ideas for textile artists, from recycling fabrics using hand-held needlepoint to building up layers of color with an embellisher machine. The projects include a “glazed chintz” bag, colorful patchwork pillows, and much more. There's instruction on coloring and dyeing fabrics, creating and using texture, working in three dimensions, and even creating your own cloth.
