GIVES A TOUCH OF COLOR
Effective Decoration That Is Needed
Properly to Set Off the White
Into the decoration of many white
frocks there now enters some color
to carry further the bright note sup
plied by a corsage bouquet of satin
roses or a ribbon girdle with rosettes.
Upon the more or less solid solid
spaces of well-made cluny lace there
Is embroidered a patch of solid work,
which may take on a square, a circu
lar or a floral shape, according to the
spnee to be covered. The work Is
done In soft-colored mercerized cot
ton, the quality of which varies In
coarseness with the lace.
In order to gain a necessary firm
ness It will be well to baste the lace
or Insertion upon white batiste or
even mull, and to stick through this,
cutting away the remainder when the
color work Is completed.
If the heaviest solid work be to
your liking, pad the space to be em
broidered, upon the top of the lace.

Giving Hat Pins.
When giving hat pins for prizes or
birthday gifts do not give Just one.
They are now worn in pairs, and It Is
wiser to get two of a cheaper Bort
than a single expensive one with none
to match It. This Is particularly ap
plicable to the huge rlilneatone pins
which are so fashionable.
The embroidery Is done entirely In
French embroidery, with seeding In
the bow-knot and some of the flower
Seeding gives a very dainty touch In
embroidery. It Is merely short, even
back, stitches placed at regular In
tervals. Succeeding lines have the
back or seed stitch midway between
and nn even distance below the seeds
of the preceding line.
The stitches are laid alternately,
Just as bricks are laid In a wall.
When the embroidery Is finished, cut
the cloth away under the bow-knot,
