PATTERN RATING:Star Rating Pattern pieces are all full-sized and well marked except for seam allowances. You get 4 different size bears that look pretty amazing in mink fur.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating Instructions are broken down by body parts, and there is some illustration to help the crafter, but not enough for someone who's never tried this before.

SUMMARY- This book is useful for recycling old mink collars and coats. The patterns are for smallish bears and the color photos of their end results look great.
