PATTERN RATING:Star Rating. The toys and decorations are geared toward very young children, and so are somewhat simplified and sweet. The patterns have to be enlarged quite a bit, but are gridded to help the crafter. Despite the usual assortment of teddy and farm fowl patterns, there is some nice variety here and the photographs are nice full color.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating. The instructions are broken down into numbered steps, and there are a few illustrations to help the crafter. The simplicity of the patterns probably doesn't call for much more than that.

SUMMARY- Her patterns are inventive and engaging, if way too sweet for my tastes. Your mileage will almost certainly differ in this.
