PATTERN RATING: Star Rating. The patterns are gridded for resizing and use the a-b-c method of marking. Seam allowances are not marked on the patterns. The toy patterns are mostly for kittens, even the chapter on big cats is about a baby lion or tiger. There are several anthropomorphized cats that can be used as dolls. If you love kittens that look like cuddly balls of fluff, then you'll like this book.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating. I found the instructions sort of rushed and patchy, with little illustration to accompany them. The patterns aren't horribly complicated but complicated enough for a little more than I got. If you don't already know what you are doing, you could find following these instructions a little bumpy.

SUMMARY- This book isn't just about soft toys. The other projects were interesting to go through, and the Scottish mice were a hoot. There are 108 pages of cute.
