SPEGIECATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 399,182, dated March 5, 1889. Application filed April 28, 1888.. Serial No. 272,125. (No specimens.)

Be it known that LDANIEL lV. CMIPBELL, of Test Troy, in the county7 of Albany and State of New York, have invented a new and useful Ornamental Fabric for Table-Spreads, of `which the following is a full and exact deseription.

My invention relates to the ornamentation of table-spreads and other similar articles made of felt, cloth, or other Vfelted or Woven goods, or in which said goods lform the bodypicee of the article; and it consists of a bodypiece of any preferred size and forni, having either plain or ornamental edges, and havin g inits body a series of regularly-arranged incisions produced by cutters provided with either straight or ornfunentalbT formed eutting-edges, and then. weaving through said incisions ribbons or strips of material, preferablyY of some bright color that will form a good Contrast. with the eolor of th ebody-pieoe. ln the accompanying drawings, which are herein referredv to and forni part of this specification, Figure l is a plan viewof one corner of the bodypieee of a table-spread haring a series of incisions made therein. Fig. 2 is a like View of the same corner linished by weaving ribbons through said incisions. Fig. is a section of lig. 2 at the line X X. Fig. -i is a plan View ol' one end ot' the body-piece of a f u rniturescarf, showing a series of prepara tory incisions. Fig. 5 is a plan View of a strip of applique-Work provided with a series of incisions through which the ornamentingribbon is woven to secure said strip to the' body-piece. Fig. G is a plan vieuv of said furniture-scarf when finished by Weaving the ornamenting-ribbon through the incisions of the body-pieee and applique-strip; and Fig. T is a section of Fig. G at the line Y Y.

As represented in the drawings, A designates a bedr-piece for a table-spread or other article that itis desired toproduce. Saidbodypiece is made of felt, cloth, or other similar fabric, and preferablyv of such fabric havin a sin-- gle color. Sadbody-picee may have its edges ornainentally indented, as shown' in the drawings, or left plain, at option. A series of incisions is made in said body-piece in such form and at such places as the preferred style of ornamentation may require, and such incisions mayhave the form of a straight line, (like those l indicated by 1,) of n curved line, (similar to those indicated by 9,) of a composite line, (similar 'to those indicated by 3 and 4,) or of any other torni that tasto or fancy may suggest.

B and C are ornalnenting ribbons or strips, preferabl)r of a different fabric, and also, preferably, of a different color both in respect to each other and to the body-piece, so as to form a pleasing contrast of colors. Said ribbons are woven through the incisions of the bodypieee, as shown in Figs. 3, (i, and 7, so as to shon' alternateli on the upper and lower surfaces of saidbody-pieee.

D is an zi-plilitpie-pieee, which is preferably made of the saine kind of fabric that the body-piece is, but of a different color. Said applique-piece has a series of incisions, 5, which should eorrespond to those in that part of the body-piece where the applique-piece is i to be secured, and the latter operation is effected by wearing the ribbon 'l through the incisions of the bod7 and applique pieces, shown in Fig. 7, thereby sini ultaneouslf,v effecting the ornamentation of the article and securing the applique-piece tothe body-piece.

The incisions are made in the fabric by ni eans of cutters Whose cutting-edges are fashion ed to produce the desired forni of incision, `and said cutters may be arranged in series to produt-,eall or aniv number of the incisions nt one ti 1n e, orbe used singly to malte one incision at a time, and said cutters may be either incorporated in a machine or be used by hand. I do not confine myself tothe form of incision shown in' the drawings, as n similar eltectean be produced by diversifying the forni of said incisions.

I claim my invention- '.lhe combination of a body-piece, of felt, cloth, or other felted or Woven fabric, provided with a rou' of incisions, an appliquepieee provided with incisions which correspond tothe incisions in said body-piece, and a separable ribbon Woven or dra-Wn through sai d incisions, whereby said applique-piece is seoured to said bodypiece, asherein speciiie/.l
