Description  (OCR text may contain errors)

Patented Feb. 24, 1931 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE TILLIE MILLER, OF CHEYENNE, WYOMING METHOD OF EDGING FABRICS No Drawing fabric in the desired finished condition.

\Vith the foregoing and other objects in view which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention consists of certain steps of the method hereinafter more fully pointed out in the accompanying claim and disclosed in the following description.

The preparation used for edging the fabrics is composed of the ingredients mentioned in my application herein referred to, namely,

orange, shellac, 15 parts; rosin, 5 parts;'

stearic acid, 5 parts; dry aluminum, bronze or gold paint 5 parts.

The foregoing mixture is heated by placing it in a small flat tray on a stove or other heating medium. A very small amount of the material,about one quarter of a teaspoonful, is used at one time. This is placed on the tray and maintained at an even temperature so as to be kept in a molten state. Thereafter the edge of the fabric to be treated is inserted into the molten material which is in a thin film on the flat tray. This will produce a fine thread-like deposit on the fabric edge which will not only give the fabric an attractive finish, but Will also act as a binder for the threads and prevent fraying.

The method of treatingcan be used in different kinds of art work requiring the use of fabrics, and is particularly desirable because the material used in the edging process dries instantly upon being removed from the film on the pan orother container used.

WVhat is claimed is The herein described method of preventing fabrics from fraying at their edges which consists in heating and melting a normally hard edging material to provide a thin film on a flat surface, and thereafter applying the edge of the fabric against the said flat surface to embed the edge in-the heated film and forming a fine thread-like portion of Application filed April 16,

1928. Serial No. 270,589.

the material along the edge of the fabric to bind and finish the same, said edgingmaterial hardening when removed from the film and cooled.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own, I have hereto affixed my signature.
