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 had this book sent to my mom as a gift. The book came with a different cover and a different title. All the pages were discolored and damaged. So, my review might not be fair. She kept the book and I got my money back. Whether the book is worth buying otherwise, I can't say.

Came sooner then I thought, and though it was a used book, it was near perfect condition. Love this book....Love to sew for the grand children and they in turn love it when their Nana makes extra special toys for them. Boys and girls alike love these, and a few of my adult friends have asked for a certain one or two. Great instructions, patterns are at the rear of book and easily printed. I copy a page, then enlarge as instructed, but you may find it useful to make "smaller" mini ones to accompany the larger ones. (i.e. mommy and me) projects. Enjoy

I've only made one of these so far - but the directions were medium easy for me to follow. I plan on making at least three more animals for my up and coming granddaughter!
