Laurie Sharp is one of my ultimate favorite needle felting authors! I recommend her if you’re a beginner or experienced needle felter. She mainly covers needle felting but in this book she touches on some wet felting projects.
Her husband, Kevin Sharp, takes clear pictures where you could needle felt without reading the instructions. But Laurie’s,  excellent instructions are very helpful, clear step by step procedures in making a project. I’m new to wet felting so I appreciated, Laurie’s guidance when she touched on a few wet felting projects.
All her creations are super cute just like this sock monkey I made below. To make the sock monkey I used a pipe cleaner so his arms and legs are moveable but in the book, Laurie, demonstrates making him without. I also added the heart to my project. The cute sock monkey took me 6 hours to make with the traditional repeated poking of the barbed needle. Needle felting as a craft is not a quick procedure and it doesn’t seem to matter about the size of the project.
