Big Little Felt Universe Book Review & Giveaway


If you've been following my blog for a while you may remember Jeanette Lim.  She is the owner of the adorably sweet etsy shop, Umecrafts, which offers some incredible felt patterns and tutorials.  Jeanette was one of my very first blog sponsors, and I was so thrilled to feature her patterns on my blog  two of years ago.  And I'm happy to welcome her sweet patterns back to my blog this week! 

This time around I get to tell you about Jeanette's exciting new book Big Little Felt Universe from Lark Crafts.  This book contains more than 70 feltastic projects with life-size patterns and easy to follow instructions!

I'm a huge fan of Jeanette's work, especially her felt food projects.  In this new book you'll find some of her food crafts, such as felt fruits and vegetables, cookies & milk, even holiday cookies, and a gingerbread house!  And then there's my favorite project---this amazing felt cake!

But foods aren't the only thing you'll find in this book.  Jeanette has also included some great patterns for all kinds of household items.  One of my favorites among these is the house plant patterns.  Apart from being incredibly cute, these are also great because I could make these and set them out without worrying about the cats eating them (not the case with real plants).  And best of all you don't have to have a green thumb to make felt plants!

And there's also a ton of patterns to help your kids play make believe.  Imagine making your child a felt doctor's kit or a purse complete with lipstick, a compact, even a wallet with a credit card!  And these are just a few of the fun projects that you can learn to make with this book.

Free Sample Download:  Right now Lark Crafts has a free download on their site for the instructions to make this adorable Felt Ice Cream Sundae (pictured above).

Buy It!  You can purchase your copy of  Big Little Felt Universe online at Barnes and Noble or Amazon.


Win it! One Simply Sweet Home reader will win a copy of Big Little Felt Universe.

Giveaway closed.  Congrats to our winner: Deanna!
