SUMMARY- This is one of the most awesome books I've run across recently! She uses variegated threads to great effect, and the animals are easy to see. She provided a good legend in order to follow her modern diagrams - but I've been warned that her written instructions do not always match the diagrams(and that you should go with the diagram). She breaks her instructions down really well so that they are easy to read. Knowledge of split rings is necessary to work up her patterns. Ms. Weidmann gives written permission to sell finished pieces made from her instructions. I highly recommend this book if you are looking for charming appliques to make for kids clothing or your own accessories.
