Booklist Review

Ignore the "home dec" vernacular and even the authors' breezy way of assuming that, hey, anyone with any IQ at all can master a sewing machine. Because here, in Betzina and Valentine's fourth book, is a literal font of crafty creativity. Where else could you find instructions for a kitty litter box cover? Or a TV remote-control pillow holder? Sure, some of the more than 50 patterns are a bit silly. Yet what draws and holds readers' attention are excellent directions, work sheets for measuring such size-variable items as window coverings and futons, good process photographs, and a bevy of useful information--about single and double welts, gathering, stretch velour, and other related topics. Envision any home accessory, and chances are it's inside Betzina and Valentine's collection. --Barbara Jacobs

Library Journal Review

Betzina is known primarily for her books on garment sewing. In this collaboration with interior decorator Valentine, she switches gears to explore the world of sewing accessories for the home. In addition to complete, richly illustrated instructions for dozens of pillows, window treatments, table coverings, bed linens, and gifts for children and pets, there are solid sewing instructions that the reader can use in myriad future sewing projects. Highly recommended for all public library sewing collections (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
