There's a new felting book out called "AlterKnits Felt" by Leigh Radford, Photography by John Mulligan.Pot Holders
I LOVE to felt! Felting a wool project covers up all sorts of knitting mistakes! I've made many felted handbags over the years. Leigh Radford's new book goes way beyond the handbag. In additon to many bags, purses and satchels, there are patterns for scarves, cowls, hats, pillows, rings, necklaces, bracelets, garlands, ornaments, boxes, pot holders and even an upholstered ottoman.

Take a look at a few of the projects....they're quite unique! There are needle felting projects as well as traditional felting. There are also projects using thrift shop wool sweaters to make bags and pillows.
This is a very well-written book with loads of basic felting information. Imagination and creativity are emphasized, but the samples given in this book will give you an excellent jumping-off point.
The tree ornaments knock me out!
