Wool felt is a textural fiber medium that can be manipulated into flat or three-dimensional shapes. Olsonfocuses here on wet felting, which transforms raw wool fleece into cloth using water, soap, and agitation.As it becomes cloth, it can be handled to form flat pieces that will be recognizable as felt fabric, or intoother shapes that can be used as embellishments. A short section also describes needle (also known as dry)felting, which uses barbed needles to tangle the fibers of several pieces of wool fleece, combining theminto one solid piece of felt. Included are 12 projects inspired by Alice in Wonderland and the feel of thatfantasy world. Some are purely decorative, such as a felted teapot and teacups, while most are alsoutilitarian, including a pincushion, egg cozies, a handbag, slippers, and more. An overview of thetechniques and materials is illustrated with clear photographs, as are the projects, which include step-bystepdirections and materials lists. A large sheet of templates is folded and tucked into a back pocket.—  Anne Heidemann
