Babylon, a home-decorating expert who appears regularly on Home and Garden Television (HGTV), and Waller, a specialist in decorative trims, add this title on window treatments to the More Splash Than Cash series of books on budget-conscious home decorating.

Geared toward the novice sewer, the book offers a chapter entitled "A Crash Course in Sewing without Pulling Your Hair Out," and instructions for different window coverings give explicit directions on measuring and cutting fabric. There's even space in the instructions for readers to write down measurements. The text is sprinkled throughout with tips on modifying designs or materials as needed or desired. Sketches of different steps in the process will help readers visualize what they should be doing, while color photographs of each of the 23 projects show one version of a finished product. Clear instructions and a large variety of designs make this a useful guide. Beth Leistensnider
