14 delightful patterns in 1 book. That works out to be less than $2.00 a pattern. Where do you get that kind of deal anymore? Plus these patterns all have laser-cut kits that go with them if you'd like. Can I say 'git 'er done' any more clearly? You must buy the book to be able to buy the laser-cut kits. We have to protect the artist who came up with these great patterns. Also, the patterns were out there, before they thought of using these for laser-cut kits, so you need to make your own layout guide. Just hold the pattern page up to a window or a light table and trace to make your layout guide. Or, if you're very clever, just reverse the layout in your head. Some people are just talented that way. Finished sizes are 12 x 16". Again, this is a fantastic deal for all of these great patterns.
