Disappointed in this cute product.

I really wanted to love this product! However, it has so many problems.
For starters, it is supposed to be a beginner's kit, but lacks complete instructions on how to use it. The instruction booklet shows stitches - but not any kind of step by step tutorial.
I feel like the manufacturer put a lot more effort into the overall packaging and style of the product than the product itself. All style and no substance.
The iron-on transfers are difficult to use without smudging (even when the paper is pinned to the fabric). A pattern this delicate should have been printed right on the fabric, in my opinion.
The kit comes with embroidery floss, needles, patterns, and fabric -- but only enough fabric to make two trees. If you judge this product by the photos on W-S, you would think you could make 4 different designs, at the very least.
Bummed because I really wanted to revive my embroidery skills and make these cute trees!
