Excellent reference book

I began my foray into felting with this book, and I was very pleased with the results. I made my first felted bag, the fur-trimmed tote, way back in 2007 or so, and when I got my iPad last year I was looking for something to tote it around in, and presto, this bag fits like a glove.

The first felting book I read and one of the best. Galeskas starts each chapter with a simple and easy bag, hat, whatever, and continues with progressively more difficult designs. She gives both unfelted and felted gauge for each project, which is helpful. I love all three of her basic bags.
