A bit of colored fleece and a felting needle will have you creating the 'Matrooska' Russian dolls on the cover. Slow and steady wins the race for the Tortoise Felties. The textured shells of the tortoise are an added touch. The Starfish Felties are sure to delight with the use of beads as an accent on the arms. If you want to try felting, this is a nice introduction to the craft with colorful photographs and wonderful little animals and dolls.* www.examiner.com *
