What could be cuter than a woolly pompom creature? With Sachiyo Ishii's ridiculously loveable pocket-size creations, you have all the ingredients of a fabulous, fun book! There are 35 imaginative designs for animals, birds, sea creatures, bees and other insects accompanied by clear, step-by step instructions.

With sections on materials, tools and basic techniques, you have all you need to get you started. Learn how to make the pompoms, attach them to each other and needle felt on features such as faces, ears, arms and legs - adding the features is where their characters really come to life! All the pompoms can be made from scraps of yarn in your stash and each design uses only small amounts. You can be up-to-the-minute with plastic pompom makers or keep it traditional with the cardboard ring technique.

Sachiyo's delightful designs include a ladybird, a fox, a hummingbird, a hamster, a dolphin and a hedgehog. With beautiful photographs to show off these charming pompom creations, this is sure to delight young and old alike.

This book comes with easy to follow instructions and really nice illustrations for each of the 35 creatures. The introduction carefully explains how to make the pompoms using different things, and also explains the needle felting process needed to add the features to your creations. It also tells all the items needed for the projects. A good book for both the beginner and those with experience. -- Mrs Lynne Harvey * Customer Review *
