If felt to you means those flat sheets on sale in craft stores, then think again. This is the thicker, fluffier, highly tactile material you make yourself, and then make into whatever you wish. I have tried this before with little success. Those staged photographs really make a difference, as envisaging a totally unknown process with only print or verbal instructions for guidance is not easy at all. You probably even have most of the items you need for this, apart from stranger articles such as a bamboo mat, mosquito netting and oilcloth. It sounds as though you are kitting yourself out for a stay in the tropics, but turn over the page and it all becomes beautifully clear. Make flat felt, mix the colors, use a template, roll it into a ball and more. You will be left with the lovely fabric, and plenty of ideas as to what to do with it and how it is to be done. Purses, bags, baby bootees, corsages, even motifs for jewellery can all be conjured out of this versatile material. There are also instructions on adding linings and fastenings, and although the directions for making up the projects are text only, they are clear enough and simple enough to be understood. An attractive and helpful primer. --Rachel Hyde, MyShelf
