I am pleased to announce the upcoming release of my newest how-to book.
Felt Wee Folk – New Adventures: 120 Enchanting Dolls by Salley Mavor, C&T Publishing ©2015, 160 pages, 8″ x 10″.
Books may be pre-ordered from my Etsy Shop here. Your order will be sent when the book is released in late February 2015. Books ordered from my Etsy Shop will include some extra goodies; autograph, a winter scene poster (folded flat) and faux flowers to make 2 fairies.
Rob and I had such fun filming the process of making a fairy doll for this book trailer:
This long-awaited all-doll version expands the wee world introduced in the original edition of Felt Wee Folk: Enchanting Projects (C&T Publishing 2003), with pictures, directions and patterns for making more bendable figures with a variety of hairstyles, outfits, and armatures.
Favorite doll projects from the first book, including acorn-capped blossom fairies and other fanciful wee folk make a return appearance. As requested by fans, more challenging techniques, such as wig making are added, making this book suitable for all skill levels, from the beginner who is learning the blanket stitch to the experienced embroiderer who relishes fine stitching.
The book is bursting with inspirational photographs of little characters set up in miniature worlds, from woodland scenes to doll houses, to fairy gardens. A certain type of person enjoys creating and looking into tiny, enchanting worlds and this book is for them! These dolls appeal to the child within you, no matter your age.
Take a behind the scenes look at photo shoots for the book here.
Upcoming book signing events (poster included with book purchase):
Sunday, March 8th at 3:00pm — Book Release party at Eight Cousins Bookstore, Falmouth, MA
Sunday, March 15th at 2:00 pm — Book Signing and short presentation, Return of the Wee Folk at the Sandwich Public Library, Sandwich, MA
Really fun trailer. Book ordered, can’t wait !!
I have ordered your new book Salley and I am so excited. I’ve been making your little dolls for quite a while now and look forward to learning some extra techniques. Love, love your work and I hope that your book sells well.
An incredibly lovely video about what no doubt is another incredibly lovely book! Exquisite work.
I love the video, Salley, and that’s a beautiful portrait of you. I can’t wait to get the book and explore your world some more. I would love to make a nativity scene….what a great idea. I just unfolded my new posters and am flattening them out under a big sketchbook, as we just got home. Happy New Year, Salley! I hope you have another wonderfully creative year. love, Beth
A happy creative year !
Ohhh how I enjoyed that little video 😉 !!!
