"Japanese" and "cute" are today’s hot buzzwords among crafters. Add in "felt" and you’ve got the perfect recipe for fun. My Favorite Felt Sweets blends these three ingredients into a charming volume that will delight style-savvy craft enthusiasts everywhere.
The book offers detailed, easy-to-follow directions, as well as life-sized patterns, for 106 different projects. Sheets of colored felt and basic sewing skills (and sometimes a little glue for the final, decorative touches) are all that are required to whip up these luscious-looking and guilt-free confections.
From petit fours to birthday cakes, tartlets, madeleines and cigar sticks to gingerbread men and fortune cookies – here are the makings of hours of enjoyment and richly rewarding creative endeavors.

The instructions are easy to follow and the patterns in the back of the book come with full size templates. I've made the cute donuts, cookies and a few cakes so far and it was a lot of fun. My skill level at sewing is beginner - maybe almost beginner status, and I was able to follow the book's instructions well.
