These are very cute and the directions were very clear. I will definitely make more of them. However I found the recommended Craftex fusible stabilizer VERY difficult to sew by hand when stitching the petals down and adding the buttons. It worked fine on the sewing machine, but it was so thick and hard to sew through that my hands were aching! It took me over an hour just to tack the petals down and attach on the buttons! For the second bowl I opted for Pellon two sided fusible webbing #82. It is much lighter weight and easier to sew. Since it is not as thick as the Craftex Stabilizer, the 2nd bowl was a little floppier. To fix that I just wove a ribbon around it through the folded down petals and tied it with a bow. This worked out great to keep the bowl standing upright. Much easier to work with! Another tip - Before you sew anything, make sure all of the arms are the exact same width. If not, they will not fit together well when braiding them.

Clear directions, printed on good quality paper. Received both patterns (large bowl and small bowl) on separate sheets not just as two sizes on one pattern. Very nice pattern and directions, with pictures.
