It's AMAZINGLY cute and the projects look so wonderful and the book makes it all look very easy. I will say, however, that it doesn't get too into detail about how to do a lot of the things they're telling you to do in the book so I can imagine some beginners getting frustrated or feeling a little lost as to how to do certain things. If you know how to sew by hand and have some experience with things like this, you'll likely love it. I was VERY excited to get started when I received this book and was looking at everything in it. I want to make almost everything. So far, I've made one slice of cake and a kiwi slice to go on top of it and I must say, I had a lot of frustrating moments. The pattern, at least for those two items, was not perfect... the cardboard form for the slice of cake BARELY fit into the outer felt shell and the whipped cream pieces on the top at the edges of the cake were more difficult to sew together than I anticipated... I guess it's kind of hard to explain the things that I found frustrating when making it all. I've been sewing things out of felt for months and by the looks of the projects, I thought it would be a breeze. I just wish they had given more detail about little things here and there that proved to be challenging. I can't understand why some pieces of felt that I cut out exactly as the pattern indicated ended up being too small once I was halfway through sewing them together. The kiwi slice, for example. I had to improvise when sewing the two faces of it to the thin side piece as the side piece turned out to be over half an inch shorter than it was supposed to be to complete the piece! I was so annoyed. I had to add another piece to it and thus had a seam at both corners of the slice which was fine but not how the book was supposedly instructing you to make it.
