1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, 13 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 50 Fabric Animals (Paperback)
Purchased this book a couple of weeks ago with the prospect of making a soft toy as a unique, handmade gift for a newborn. The rabbit on the front cover seemed like the perfect project. I do not consider myself a professional sewer however I am not a beginner and still the instructions for this project were extremely limited leaving a lot the imagination. This would have been fine had the pattern pieces fitted though unfortunately, after such a hassle enlarging them on the photocopier, they did not and proved to be very clumsy. After several failed attempts and adjustments I can only see that the pattern would require redrafting. Having spent a fair amount of money on the fabric and a good few hours trying to decrypt the instructions/ pattern, it's now back to the drawing board. After such high hopes it's seems a waste and very disappointing indeed. In future, I will certainly be reading reviews more thoroughly rather than going on average rating!
