INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating Instructions are broken down into steps, but have little to no illustration to go with them. So unless you are expert at macrame, you are probably going to have a tough time following these instructions.

SUMMARY- The designs vary in quality (I wanted a whole lot more from the bull and elephant designs), but overall were good looking. It would never have occurred to me that toys and animal decorations could be made this way until a ran across a small lot of these booklets. As something very different, they hold a lot of appeal. Overall, I was pretty impressed, despite the poor instruction rating.
