I taught myself how to sculpt animals with books from Amazon. I wanted to learn to wet felt. This combines the two for each project. This book has detailed clear directions on technique, tools, and materials. The designs for the animals are adorable. It even has templates which can be enlarged or reduced. I will probably change some of the design elements or even make up my own animals as I'm a fair artist. If you don't feel confident doing this the templates are detailed. This book is truly inspiring for beginner, intermediate, and advanced textile art.
