Kata Golda's Hand-Stitched Felt
25 Whimsical Sewing Projects $12.83
With no more than felt and thread, Kata Golda creates toys and practical items for the home that are undeniably charming, stylish, and sweetly imperfect.
Her whimsical creations have been selling at high-end boutiques and stores such as Gumps in San Francisco for several years, and now, in Kata Golda’s Hand-Stitched Felt, she shows crafters of all skill levels how to make 25 of her favorites.
Ranging from children’s finger puppets and a tooth-fairy pillow to photo “brag” books, messenger bags, and curtains and blankets, most of these projects can be completed in an hour or less. They are made from basic shapes of wool felt sewn together and customized with unique details, all using simple, large stitches.
Step-by-step instructions and templates, along with adorable photos and hand-drawn illustrations, make each project simple to replicate. Playful tutorials, such as how to personalize projects with a variety of facial expressions, add to the charm of this delightful book.
Kata Golda is the creator of a line of hand-stitched felt items that she makes and sells with the help of nine other women out of her home in Port Townsend, Washington. Her creations are available in high-end stores and boutiques, including Neiman Marcus and Gumps .
