It’s hard to find craft and pattern books that spell out how to craft cool. So to get you inspired in a funky way, try Fanciful Felties: Sew People to Meet, Places to Go & Things to Do by Samantha Cotterill. There’s no cute animals in sight here – this book has modern styled little felt people that you’d be happy to leave out of the toy box and on display. There’s also a telephone booth, a double decker bus, and a cottage! This is one super human lady – known affectionately as Mummysam online by fabric lovers as well as crafters, Samantha also has a fabric line for Robert Kaufman, sketches for sale, and an amazingly popular blog about crafting. Fanciful Felties is available at Mummysam's Etsy shop.
