Lovely designs but patterns inferior,
This review is from: The Craft Library: Stitched Toys: 20 Stunning But Simple Designs (Paperback)
I borrowed this book from the library to examine it before buying on amazon. I am glad that I did as, although there are some lovely projects: a clown, dog, finger puppets, bear etc - the patterns all need to be enlarged on a photocopier. The amount varies from 180% to 450% - this makes it really difficult to do the projects because you not only need to have access to a photocopier or copy shop but you also need to pay for the photocopies - not cheap! Most would need to be enlarged once or twice and on to A3 paper and I have never found that easy. I bought the book SEW IT STUFF IT by Rob Merrett instead as it has lovely projects and full size patterns. Most books go for full size patterns nowadays and it is a great shame that this publisher did not.

I have a cheap printer/copier; I enlarge sections onto A4 paper and tape together the sheets together. Cheap, fast and simple!
