This kit — Critter Kingdom by Pat Ashton — was an absolute pleasure. Fabrics were labeled, which I appreciated since all fabrics were black and white. Directions were easy to follow and there were lots of illustrations. I give Pat Ashton an A+ in design and pattern instructions.
My only complaint is that the animal templates for the monkey and giraffe need to be assembled. However there wasn’t a lot of alternatives, given that neither animal fit on the standard 8.5 x 11″ instruction page. I ended up photocopying these two animals onto another piece of paper, then cutting and pasting them together.
I really enjoyed this project. It is easy to do and would be great for a confident beginner.
