PATTERN RATING: Star Rating. Patterns are full-sized, and on photocopy sheets that are separate from the book. The booklet came in a handy ziplock bag so pattern pieces and booklet could be kept together. The patterns are for three doll head shapes and a moose head. The writing is cheerful and enthusiastic.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating. The instructions are laid out step by step, and have a solid amount of illustration to go with them. I found myself wishing for photos or more sophisticated illustrations - especially of finished head - but the designs are easy to follow and well laid out.

SUMMARY- I liked their enthusiasm and how they laid the projects out. If you've never done any doll heads, this booklet would be helpful.
