PATTERN RATING: . This book struggles really hard to be silly and cute and will strongly appeal to people who aren't me. The patterns are minimally done, with few markings to help the crafter. I don't know if the poor grammatical translations from Japanese to English were intentional or not, but they are funny. No one could say the toys don't have character. The alley cat and dead mouse done in felt scraps I found especially amusing. If you are looking for cartoony, then you may want to hunt down this book. I personally felt it was way too expensive for what I got.
INSTRUCTION RATING:. The instructions are somewhat disjointed, but they are there. If you don't already know what you're doing, the instructions aren't going to help you much. There are no illustrations, but they are so tightly packed together as to be somewhat difficult to follow. Illustrations would have just added to the chaos.
SUMMARY- Nothing here for the designer, other than lots of examples of cuteness.
