PATTERN RATING:Star Rating Patterns are full-size and very well marked, on newsprint type paper as an insert that can be pulled out of the middle of the booklet. You get great full-color photos of each of the projects, and I found the finished projects charming and easy to identify as what they are intended to be. There's also a nice variety, and not all generic.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating Instructions are broken down into numbered steps and there is some illustration to go with them to help the crafter.

SUMMARY- I was stunned by how much I enjoyed this booklet. Not all the projects are to my taste, but enough are to be well worth the price of admission. I'm always pessimistic about any craft book that doesn't tell you who the designer(s) were, but here I was pleasantly surprised - and I still would like to know who the designers were!
