Title: Making Traditional Teddy Bears: Featuring 12 collectable designs
Author: Brian and Donna Gibbs
Publication Date: TPB:2001
Publisher: David & Charles Publishers, UK
Page Count: 128
Book Dimensions(ht. x w.): 11" x 8 1/2"

PATTERN RATING:Star Rating Patterns are well marked and full-size. You may have problems photocopying a good copy because of the binding(you'll have to break the spine to get the book to lie flat). You get a nice assortment of different bears - not just resizing of the same pattern.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating Instructions aren't broken down very well, but they are very detailed. And you get a good mix of photos and line illustrations to back them up.

SUMMARY- Another solid bear book that gets good mileage out of traditional designs.
