This invention relates to hat decorations, and particularly to a decoration for ladies hats of the plain turban type; an object of the invention being to provide a decoration of this character embodying a plurality of fabric sheets or handkerchiefs adapted to be associated in such a manner as to form a decorative member of substantially annular formation to fit about the crown of a hat.
With these and other objects in View, the invention consists in certain novel features of construction, combination and arrangement of parts to be hereinafter more fully described and claimed.
For a complete understanding of my invention, reference is to be had to the following description and accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 is a plan view illustrating a ladys handkerchief constructed in accordance with the present invention.
Figure 2 is a plan View illustrating the first step in the folding of the handkerchief to form a hat decoration in accordance with the present invention.
Figure 3 is a plan view illustrating the second step in the folding of the handkerchief.
Figure 4 is a plan View illustrating the third step in folding the handkerchief.
Figure 5 is a plan view illustrating the fourth, or final step in the folding of the handkerchief.
Figure 6 is a perspective view illustrating several of the folded handkerchiefs arranged on a hook for the purpose of plaiting the folded handkerchiefs into an ornamental decoration for a hat in accordance with the present invention.
Figure 7 is a perspective view illustrating the application of the braided handkerchiefs to a turban-type hat for decorating the latter.
Figure 8 is a perspective view illustrating several of the folded handkerchiefs twisted about each other as a rolled braid to act as a decoration for a hat.
Figure 9 is a detailed sectional view illustrating a reinforcement for the opening in the handkerchief.
Referring in detail to the drawings, the numeral [5 indicates a handkerchief of any selected kind of material and of such a size as to permit it being used, in accordance with the present invention, for the making of an ornamentation for a ladys hat of the turban type, indicated by the numeral IS in Figures 7 and 8. The handkerchief I5 is first folded by bringing the corner A over to the corner B. With the handkerchief thus folded and creased,
as shown in Figure 2, the crease extends through the opening I! which is located adjacent one of the corners of the handkerchief. The handkerchief after being folded as shown in Figure 2 is again folded, as shown in Figure 3, the corners A and B are brought to the crease line forming a second crease in the handkerchief. The handkerchief is further folded, as shown in Figure 4, that is, the second folded portion of the handkerchief is again folded upon itself with the corners A and B terminating at the first crease of the handkerchief. The handkerchief is further folded, as shown in Figure 5, to form a comparatively narrow strip of the handkerchief with the opening I! located adjacent one end of the strip formation. Several of the handkerchiefs thus folded into strip formation are placed on a hook [8, as shown in Figure 6, and are twisted about each other with the free ends passed through the openings to form the folded handkerchiefs as described into an ornamental roll I9 which arranged about the crown of the hat and secured thereon by several hatpins 20 or the several handkerchiefs may be braided together, as shown at 2| in Figure 6, and the free ends passed through the openings and left loose. The passing of the free ends of the handkerchiefs through the openings arranges the major portions of the handkerchiefs which are braided together into annular formation to form an ornament or decoration 22 for the hat, as shown in Figure '7. The decoration or ornament is secured on the hat by several hatpins 23. In making up the decorations handkerchiefs of different colors which harmonize may be rolled or braided together. This also applies when joining several handkerchiefs together for the purpose of forming a scarf or an evening head-dress (not shown).
From the foregoing description, when taken in connection with the accompanying drawings it will be seen that a handkerchief improved in accordance with the present invention may be combined with several other like handkerchiefs for ornamental purposes for trimming hats or for forming evening head-dresses. Further it will be seen that handkerchiefs constructed in accordance with the present invention will not have the cost of manufacture materially increased over the cost of the manufacture of an ordinary handkerchief and furthermore the handkerchiefs constructed in accordance with this invention will not have their attractiveness destroyed in any way.
As shown in Figure 9 the opening I! in the handkerchief has the walls thereof protected and bound by a binding 9 stitched onto the handkerchief and preferably constructed of the same material as the handkerchief. This binding will prevent the edges of the opening from fraying and also will permit the passing of another handkerchief through said opening with ease.
fully set forth the construction and advantages of this invention to those skilled in the art to which such a device relates, so that further detailed description will not be required.
Having thus described the invention, what I claim is:
In a hat decoration, a plurality of substantially rectangular shaped fabric sheets each having an opening adjacent one corner thereof and each folded upon itself into strip formation with the opening located at one end thereof, said folded sheets of strip formation being interlaced with each other with the openings aligning with each other and adjacent ends passed through said openings to form a decorative member of substantially annular formation to fit about a crown of a hat with free end portions.
