PATTERN RATING:Star Rating There are a few gridded patterns, but for the most part there are no patterns needed, as most of the toys are not cloth. There are some interesting ideas here, but there's no way to tell how well the toys actually make up because there no photos, only illustrations.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating Instructions are not broken down and there are very few illustrations to go with the instructions - just a drawing of the toy as it should look once made up.

SUMMARY- It was interesting to read(Ms. Jordan had a lot of enthusiasm) but not particularly useful. Quite a few of the toys would have child safety experts ranting and foaming at the mouth.
