Little Felted Dogs: Easy Projects for Making Adorable Pups by Saori Yamazaki

I am super predisposed to love this book – it’s got dogs, it’s got cute tiny things, it’s got fiber, and it’s got making stuff. My only complaint is that there isn’t a Boston Terrier included among the two dozen breeds here. (The cuteness of the other breeds is off the charts, though, which almost makes up for that.) I haven’t done this type of wool needle felting before, but the instructions are clear and detailed, with lots of tips at the beginning for getting the necessary techniques down pat. Each pup is assembled from a series of smaller pieces (legs, bodies, heads, and so forth), which seems like it would make achieving the overall look easier. I don’t have a source for this type of wool locally (that I know of! If you know otherwise, please share!) but I hope to find some in the future so I can make some of these little cuties.

Full disclosure: I received a copy of this book from Blogging for Books.
