around the world with needle felting, a new book

i've seen a lot of japanese needle felting books, and i really believe this one deserves to be shared. it's called 'small world trip-encircled by felted wool,' and beside the wonderful idea of a world encircled in felt, i love this idea of organizing a series of projects based on the cultures of different countries. this leads to a nice mixture of animals, scenes, and other small motifs.

here are the projects from holland: a girl, wooden shows, and a little windmill scene.
koalas from australia,
and pandas from china.

there a full flickr set here, and the book is in my shop too.

What a neat idea! Must get back to needle-felting. The Holland scene is adorable!

I've been living in Japan for just about 3 months now and I just saw this book last week - too cute!! Have you tried any of the animals yet? I think the wooden shoes are adorable. :)

thanks everyone, i'm glad to hear you like this book too! i haven't tried any of the projects myself, but i have to say i too am drawn to the holland scene, especially the wooden shoes.
