This craft book contains step-by-step instructions and beautiful colour photographs showing how to make an entire farm: with a range of felted animals, people and tools, as well as the farmyard itself.

The second part of the book is a lovely illustrated story. It uses the characters, animals and settings from the first part to tell the story of a fun-filled day on a farm.

You may choose to just make a couple of animals to supplement an existing farm set, or the entire farm, which is a great project for the whole family. Younger ones can make apples, balls or puddles and older children can felt simple animals. Parents and other experienced adults can felt the more intricate animals and put the farm structure together. A felt farm project is a wonderful way for families to spend time together, working with a common purpose.

Throughout, experienced felter Rotraud Reinhard provides tips and tricks for working with felt and bringing colour and life to your farm.


'It's a beautiful book with beautiful pictures. The instructions are detailed and accompanied by photographs. Making this farm would be a wonderful family project.'
-- Juno Magazine, Spring 2011

'A wonderful range of people, animals, tools, scenery, buildings and furniture may be made using this unusual craft technique. The first part of the book gives detailed and easy to follow instructions on working with felt, with beautiful, clear photographs of the different stages of construction. The second part consists of a richly illustrated 60 page story featuring the characters and animals that are shown in the first part of the book. The story itself is very appealing and the book itself could be used solely as a picture book, although a hand-felted catsitting beside you would add greatly to the experience!'
-- Home Education Adversory Service, Spring 2011
