Strip of grey kid; strip of oil silk; 1 skein black silk; 1 skein red
purse silk; 1 hank steel beads; steel button.
This case will be found very useful on
the occasion of a journey or picnic, as it can be carried in the
pocket without any inconvenience.
The case is made of a strip of grey
kid, scalloped out at the edges. The words "Bon appetit," or "Good
appetite," at will, are worked over it in overcast with black purse
silk and steel beads, the scroll pattern in chain stitch with red
silk. The back and front of the case are formed of the same strip,
which is lined with oilskin, and to which narrow side-pieces are added
to form the pocket. These pieces are lined and scalloped out in the
same way as the back and front, and then the scallops of both sides
are joined together, and worked round in button-hole stitch with purse
The case is fastened down with a steel
If another colour is preferred, the
sandwich case can be made of
kid. The scroll pattern should then be worked in rich blue purse silk,
and gold beads used for the letters, which should be embroidered as
before in black silk. The edge may be worked in double overcast stitch
in blue or black silk. A gold button must replace the steel when this
alteration of color is made.
