PATTERN RATING: Star Rating. The patterns need to be enlarged but are on grids for convenience. They are marked with dots AND a-b-c's to help the crafter, along with other important basic instructions. Good detail is more or less there depending on the age of the kid the toy is geared towards. It breaks my general rule of 'no designer listed = clunky designs'.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating. The instructions are pretty detailed, but don't have a lot of illustrations accompanying them.

SUMMARY- This is a pretty good book for fostering inspiration. I especially like the gaming rugs and the caterpillar sleeping bag. It's an interesting mix of sewn and knitted toys and accessories.
