PATTERN RATING:Star Rating Patterns are all full-size on tissue paper in an envelope glued to the inside of the back cover. You get a really wide variety of applique patterns with a smattering of soft sculpture art.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating Her instructions are very well broken down and heavily illustrated with fantastic full-page color photos of each finished project - I don't think you can get better than that!

SUMMARY- Most of this book is applique, but you do get one doll pattern, a bee skep, and some soft sculpture vegetables. A lot of this is "country primitive" with a huge dose of whimsey that lends it all a lot of funny charm.
