The step-by-step photos are incredibly helpful, as well as all the information on with tips on sewing with fleece and all kinds of tutorial information. There's even a video on how to do the nose... it makes it very easy to do even as a beginner. Clearly written, easy to follow directions. I'm halfway through making this doll and am sure that I will end up making more as gifts because it's so easy to follow!
