PATTERN RATING:Star Rating The patterns are imaginative and charming - and look like what they're said to be. I was especially charmed by Woolly Allen and the sewer alligator! There is enough detail on each to keep the crafter engaged with the project. There are clothing patterns mixed in with the soft sculpture.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating Instructions are well broken down and easy to read. Finishing instructions can be a little sketchy, but the patterns aren't that complex.

SUMMARY- I must say that there is one very long suffering bulldog who modelled all the dog costumes with patience and grace. I was charmed by this book and will happily look for her first- Stitch London. Her quirky sense of humor and imaginative designs aren't all you get. She also suggests other things the basic patterns can be used to push the New York motif even further. I was extremely pleased to have run across this book!
