Felt with Love free pdf Felt With Love is a must-have book for anyone with an appreciation of adorable hand-crafted objects. It is a colourful one-off book, filled with 15 cute, fun and simple projects (plus some variations) made from felted wool.

Projects include mini hanging decorations, beautiful brooches, pincushions, various wall hangings, a couple Christmassy pieces, plus much more! The author has provided templates for all the projects so that everything can be replicated with relative ease. The shapes are simply cut out using the templates and applied using easy hand embroidered stitches. Details such as veins in leaves and flowers can then be stitched with French knots or using tiny beads. Madeleine uses hand-dyed wools for the appliques, which vary in depth and hue giving beautifully unique effects.

They are great to do 'on-the-go' and once completed you have a beautiful gift for a special person or a timeless treasure for yourself!

About Madeleine Millington

Madeleine Millington is best known for her work with recycled, dyed blankets. Her main signature has been a bright, bold use of colour and there is often a touch of humour in her ideas. Her inspiration comes from Medieval and Elizabethan periods, which are both rich and exciting in embroidery, as well as Folk Art with its bold and simple shapes. Madeleine enjoys classical music, gardening and going to the theatre, and she teaches regularly for both the Embroiderer's and the Quilters' Guild. She has also had articles published in numerous embroidery, patchwork and quilting magazines and is the designer behind the successful kit range 'Blankits'.
