isbn 9784766119671 needlefelted japanese sweets

this book is an amazing collection of needle felted japanese sweets. there is a wide variety of items, and a good range from simple to more complex projects. all written instructions are in japanese, although diagrams and photos give a pretty clear explanation, and most projects are so simple that you could recreate them just by looking at them. a beginning needle felter would have no problem with the simpler projects, and be able to work their way through the book. that being said, if you have never tried needle felting before, you might want to look up some simple instructions in english before starting these projects.

isbn 97845290044158 wool felt sweets

this is the most amazing needle-felted food i have ever seen. seriously. so detailed and perfect!

'sweets of wool felt: wool desserts made by needlefelting' is the title of this book, which has the most amazing and realistic needle felted food i have ever seen. it's just be published this year.

they are intricate and very realistic cakes, breads, pastries, cookies, and so many cream and fruit decorations. all made with some very clever needle-felting, which is all explained through photos and step by step diagrams and directions. written instructions are in japanese, but the pictures and diagrams should make it easy to figure out.

this book would be a bit difficult for a complete beginner at needle-felting, but if you have the basics of needle-felting down, there are tons of great ideas, excellent photos and details to make really really realistic looking felt desserts.

there are over 42 projects, and in addition there are many more more variations of cookie shapes, fruits tarts, or japanese candies, for example.
