PATTERN RATING:Star Rating Patterns are full-size, fairly well marked, and you get a huge variety of projects that are very appealing. Pattern pieces sometimes go into the binding ditch so they will be difficult to photocopy.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating Instructions are fairly well broken down and easy to read, but there aren't a lot of illustrations. Photos of the projects are full color and very sharp and easy to see details.

SUMMARY- I've loved all of Ms. Foose's books and this one is no exception - I think my favorite may be the Cookie Cutter Animal Ornament - she adds sewing bobbins at the base of the cutter for "wheels" as an example of one detail and it is absolutely adorable. I highly recommend all of Ms. Foose's books!
