PATTERN RATING:Star Rating Patterns are all full-sized, and very well marked. The patterns are engaging, and there are quite a few lovely color photos to show them off - often modelled with babies to show the relative sizes.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating Instructions are broken down into easy numbered steps and very well illustrated.

SUMMARY- You don't need a lot of sewing experience to use this book - if you can sew together a skirt pattern, these will be a snap. The toys are bright and imaginative and practical. I highly recommend it.
