Whether the book is worth buying otherwise, I can't say.
Robyn L. Worden
Their patterns are so easy to sew, the only draw back has been having to photocopy and enlarge the patterns.
Melsy
So many cute ideas in this book and the instructions are very easy to follow.

I really like the designs in this book but I hate the fact that the patterns need to be enlarged 200%. I paid for patterns not to go to a copy shop and pay again. This is not how patterns should be printed. They should be full size.

I really like the book except for having to enlarge the patterns. I thought the patterns would be regular size but they are not. You have to enlarge them alot so if you get the book be prepared to do lots of enlarging. This can be a problem if you don't have a copier.Now for some good news . The patterns are cute and the creatures are pretty easy to make once you get your patterns set up.

Sincerely,
Kathy Durr

Having made quite a few of Melly & Me's quirky animals previously, I was absolutely thrilled when my copy of "Sewn toy Tales" arrived, only a couple of weeks after ordering. Their patterns are so easy to sew, the only draw back has been having to photocopy and enlarge the patterns.

This book is definitely worth having. Simple instructions, great characters to make but I had problems with the need to enlarge patterns. Officeworks accused me of breaching copyright!!!
It was difficult to find a place that could enlarge 200%. If this is not a problem to you then a five star rating would be appropriate. Robyn

I was disappointed at first as I could not figure out how to download the templates on the ereader version. If you have the same problem, be sure to look at the link included in the Kindle addition. It is located on the page just before the templates. Now I can't wait to make my first doll!

I couldn't wait to get this book and start projects. One thing I did NOT like, the patterns on printed on both sides of the page so you have to cut thm out of the mag, then copy one side, then cut pieces apart and enlarge them. I HATE cutting up a book!

Nice patterns. They appeal to all the children that come to the house. Many are quick to make , and directions are clear . I would recommend this to all sewers interested in cheerful sewing days. These projects are a lot of fun.

Paid $25.00 for this book to make stuffed toys, well; you have to enlarge the patterns by 200%, which I cannot do. I wish I knew this before I bought this book. (Can't return)!!! So now I have a book that is no use to me.
