I bought two e-books from MyCraftyBook on Etsy and you get the entire book for only $3.00 and Emiliana has some special deals if you buy more than one! She delivered them in a timely manner - had them the next morning. She also carries the crochet ones as well as some very cute embroidery books. And to help my cause, she graciously donated another book to me. Be sure you visit her and get them now.
These pieces can be small but if you use wool felt and freezer paper, it becomes really easy. Trace your design onto freezer paper, iron lightly onto your wool felt, and cut them out (while sitting with your feet up!). Be sure it's wool blend felt or you'll land up with a melted mess!
