PATTERN RATING:Star Rating You get a nice variety - and not just standard soft toys - that suit the theme of the book. The patterns are well marked and would be pretty easy to either photocopy or trace from the book.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating Instructions are clear and well broken down so they are easy to follow.

BONUS MECHANICS RATING:Star Rating This book gets a bonus star for the wide variety of projects it provides to fill out their theme. I can imagine an excited new mother creating a variety of these projects to decorate her nursery and welcome the newest arrival, as well as providing entertainment for older siblings who have had the Potter books read to them.

SUMMARY- I like these theme books for making toys and other needlework projects based on popular children's stories. This was a welcome addition to my small collection of them. It was very well done and clearly shows the love the various contributors had for the source material. There's beautiful illustration throughout.
