Review: Felt Dogs

Laurence King produce the most stunning books, and Felt Dogs, by consummate arts-and-crafter Mitsuki Hoshi is yet another stunner.

By the very achievable (and very relaxing!) process of felting, even very young kids can enjoy creating a entire kennel of poochy pals from Miniature Schnauzers to Pugs, Welsh Corgis, Toy Poodles, Beagles, Miniature Daschunds and more--adding their own personal touches, colours and details.

The book's instructions are suited to both experienced felters and beginners, with step-by-step photos of every stage of the process. Tools and techniques are also clearly explained, and each dog has its own dedicated assembly instructions, with measurements and actual-size photographs.

Each dog has also been photographed in the most darling, hand-created settings, with stunning photography that will have any animal lover peeping out loud. A pastel wonderland of delight, this would make fantastic school holiday fodder.

Some of Mitsuki's other publications include Ami Ami Dogs: Seriously Cute Crochet and Dog Sweaters and Accessories.
