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
