Cute Craft Books
Maybe you’ve noticed that I like sewing cute things with felt. I wouldn’t have gotten started with this craft if I never read about it first!
Here’s a collection of books that will more than get you started on your own cute, cuddly crafting. You’ll learn all of the techniques and equip yourself with more patterns than you can shake a needle at!
|Big Little Felt Universe: Sew It, Stuff It, Squeeze It, Fun!This is a great introductory felt sewing book. There are more than 70 projects in here including food and toys, such as cakes with removable decorations!
The techniques are simple enough that beginners can pick up on them easily, but there’s so much packed in here that experienced crafters will find tons of inspiration as well.
|My Favorite Felt SweetsThe book offers detailed, easy-to-follow directions, as well as life-sized patterns, for 106 different projects! o_o
Sheets of colored felt and basic sewing skills (and sometimes a little glue for the final, decorative touches) are all that are required to whip up these luscious-looking and guilt-free confections.
|Warm Fuzzies: 30 Sweet Felted ProjectsFelting is a bit different from the typical sewing-with-felt that I’m into, but thanks to the difference in technique there is potential for creating new and different things!
This book encourages using old wool sweaters – a trip to the thrift store could supply you with everything you need. There is no knitting involved!
|Aranzi Aronzo – Cuter BookThis wouldn’t be a proper cute sewing post if Aranzi Aronzo weren’t included here!
The Cuter Book is a follow-up to The Cute Book, and between the two of them are patterns for hundreds of unique cuddly characters. There’s a special flair to Aranzi Aronzo’s projects… there’s a simplicity to the characters’ designs, but SO MUCH FUN to them, too!
|Super-Cute FeltAnd this is a great finisher to this post, thanks to the huge variety of simple projects it includes.
The categories in Super-Cute Felt include Accessories (think brooches and small purses!), Gifts (pincushions!), Homewares (coasters and tea cozies!), and Celebrations for holiday-themed cuteness.
This is all reminding me that I need to get back to work on my own instructional sewing book! o^o
