I am pleased to announce the release of the 2nd edition of my how-to book, Felt Wee Folk – New Adventures: 120 Enchanting Dolls by Salley Mavor, C&T Publishing ©2015, 160 pages, 8″ x 10″.
It’s available from booksellers, but books ordered from my Etsy Shop (here) include some extra goodies; autograph, pack of Felt Wee Folk Playing Cards (also sold separately here) and faux flower skirts & wings to make 2 fairies.
Rob and I had such fun filming the process of making a 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. And 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 (sized 1.5″ – 4.5″) 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.
I was very happy to receive this testimonial from Debbie, owner of A Child’s Dream:
“I just wanted to say how impressed I am with your book. All the detail is incredible and so inspiring. It’s clear you’ve poured your heart and soul into it. I’ve seen many craft and how-to books over the years and I just wanted you to know I feel yours is one of the very best!
Doll making Supplies in my shop:
I sell the Felt Wee Folk book, as well as faux flowers to make fairies, wool fleece fairy hair and hand-painted bead heads with fitting acorn cap hats in my Etsy Shop.
