Crammed with 10 pages' worth of colour photographs and diagrams, and lots of tips and hints and suggestions and explanations, this is a great pattern for the new felter. Pace is intensely knowledgeable about her subject and seems to teach as naturally as she breathes. She notes: "Most felted bag patterns use size 13 (9mm) or larger needles, leaving visible stitching. They also have you use two strands of yarn, which really prices up your costs. I use only 1 strand with my patterns. They are just as strong and have a very nice 'hand'. VERY detailed step by step instructions for this pattern including a stitch guide, multiple photos and simple seaming instructions, plus instructions for adding the optional swirl detailing."
