Fashionable Felting

By February 7, 2013

Follow me on:

There's something about Tamara Mello's book Heart Felt Knits that just draws you in. I guess that would be the fact that her friend and fellow actress Christina Hendricks is on the cover, wearing a striking ruffled scarf.

heart felt knitsHeart Felt Knits by Tamara Mello. Chronicle Books.

That image sets the tone for the book as something pretty and fashionable. You'll find projects to wear including a cloche, a chain necklace, a cuff and armwarmers; bags, bowls and trays for the home, booties and hats for little ones and more.

I want to like this book more than I do. There are some really cute projects in here, but it also feels like it repeats motifs and techniques a little more than I'd like. Still, it's a fun book that has some great ideas for people who want to knit something that stands out at a party or anywhere else.

Have you read this book? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
