Book Review: Feathered Friends


This is the latest book from the Mollie Makes team and it will get you all in flap. It includes 20 feathered friendly projects ranging from crochet, knitting, sewing, felting, papercraft and more.

I have always loved watching the birds in my garden twittering and the recent owl fad on the high street has had me all in a flutter so when I discovered that Mollie Makes was releasing a bird friendly craft book I was very excited. The book includes a projects from a number of my favourite crafters such as Emily Peacock, Kirsty Elson, Gretel ParkerClare Youngs and Savvy Crafter.

Featuring birds of all shapes and sizes from parrots to penguins,chickens to owls, woodpeckers, roosters and more, this book has a project for everyone of any ability.


I particularly like the owl kindle cover by Savvy Crafter this simple felt appliqué is the perfect way to accessorise your kindle cover and it could easily be adapted to suit a number of other gadgets.


This adorable penguin cushion could make a stylish companion for any room.


Or how about decorating your notebook with this lino-cut woodpecker.

The book includes all the templates for the projects that can be enlarged and at the back there is a section of instructions of all the hand embroidery stitches you will need to complete the various projects throughout the book.


The instructions are step by step easy to follow with accompanying pictures.

This book is well designed and great addition to the craft shelf and the perfect book to pull out and do on a rainy summers day. I think this book is quirky and fun and there is some much to do in such a small book and loads of feathery inspiration it could you busy for hours on end. But don’t just take my word for it!

Can be bought from the Anova site for £9.99 and it is worth every penny!
