Giveaway & Review:BLFU Book


"BIG LITTLE FELT UNIVERSE" By Jeanette Lim as the name suggest is a book on creating projects using Felt. I have been ordering Jeanette's Felt Craft PDF from her etsy store (Umecrafts) and her pattern's were the reason for me to get attracted towards creating these cute felt projects. Once again she had proved with this book that she is the "queen" of felt craft with great imagination. This book has 12 Felt sets with more than 70 great felt projects with actual life-size patterns. When I say felt set's it means in her "Office" felt set she takes you from making laptop to mouse, stapler to scissor and calculator. Other felt set projects included in this book are : Cake, Camping, Sundae, Plants, Holidays, Veggies, Doctor, Grill, Purse, Fruits, Tools.
All the projects are very creative and inpiring for all level crafter's. The book guides you through supplies needed, stitches used, tips and techniques with photograph to help you at every step while crating this felt sets.The patterns are very clearly explained so even a novice crafter can create these projects with ease. I think this is one of the best books I have ever come across and I assure you, you will love this book too. Also one of our lucky reader/follower will have the opportunity to win this book. Check below for giveaway details, also lark crafts had a felt project free from the book here.
Jeanette, Congratulations on such a wonderful book.
About the Author: Jeanette Lim is a designer, visualist, and creative thinker with a passion for crafts. Insoired by a book on felt food, she began making felt doughnuts and cupcakes in early 2008 during a difficult pregnancy that prevented her from working outside the home. Since then she has sold over 6,000 of her original patterns in her Etsy shop (umecrafts.etsy.com). While many of her sales are to crafters in the U.S. and the U.K., she has filled numerous custom order request from stay-at-home moms, young professinals, annd grandmothers. Jeanette is one of the 12 featured crafters in Craft-In (Lark Crafts, 2010). She live in Singapore.

Pros: Amazing felt sets with clear written instructions followed with pictures.
Cons: I think this book could have been spiral-bound for ease of copying pattern templates
Overall: Great Book
