PATTERN RATING:Star Rating You get a great variety of patterns, but they aren't marked except for what piece of the bear it is, and they are a little rough in outline.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating Instructions are first rate - they're broken down pretty well and you get photos to support each step.

SUMMARY- The projects are adorable(as seen on cover), and the instructions are top notch. You also get excellent business advice in this book, though it isn't comprehensive in that department. The gallery is also fun. I highly recommend this book for those who both adore teddies, and like to work in miniature. This is definitely a "must-have".
