'" Place the two handkerchiefs tog ether,
and stand them on and, as It were, so
tbat they will nave tha appearance of
being diamond-shaped Instead r . of
f squares, Then proceed to sew them to
gether on tha machine. The macnine
stitching will make , them stronger
' than bandsewlnf could poastbly do.
Stitch them about aa Inch la from
the edge, ad as to leave two little
flaps aa an ornamental edge. Tha tw
lower alantlnar sides of the diamond
ara sewed together along their full
length. Th two spper Blasting aides
of tha diamond are sowed only half- '
way, ths upper halves of - the aides'
being left for the opening of tha bag-
The atltchlng oa theaa upper half
seams Is sloped off aa It. aears ths ,
center of ths side, running at last
over the edge, The two upper flap
ping points of the handkerchiefs,
which ara without stitching, are then .
turned back and creased and pressed
along; ths turning to make them, stay
la place. Two pleoea of ribbon arc
then tacked to each end of the open .
lag thus made by the turned-back
Haps. . The two ends of ribbon are
then Joined la C bow. forming a
