PATTERN RATING: Star Rating. There is a nice variety of patterns here. The toys themselves have a rounded, friendly look without being diabetic or chunky looking. They have to be enlarged, but are on grids to help the crafter, and are pretty well marked, except for a seam allowance. Details tend to be embroidered on, but are not unattractive. I'm not sure if the word 'dragon' pops to mind with their toy bearing that name but it doesn't look like much of anything else, either (more of a dragon/dinosaur/alien thingy). I could find no designer name associated with the book, but she (or he!) really had nothing to be ashamed of.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating. Instructions are missing illustration to go with them, but there are good color photos of the toys, and the instructions are laid out fairly well step-by-step.

SUMMARY- This book has no mechanics rating. The objective of the book was to make the designs provided.
