NOVEL COVERS AND TABLE * CENTRES. Very pretty cand novel covers of all kinds can be made. from coaree net and o1i le.,s of flor:l chiitz, eatcen, cretonne or print. These pieces are all the better if they have a bold pattern, with,.large flowers and foliage, but in. cases where tiny flowers are grouped together into shares they will answer the purpose equally well. But it is wise to use tihe best quality .icetnne or chiniz, .t as . the -colore: and designs- are better than. -the :1 cheaper makes. . Thile net is bought by the yard, and if the piece I its a fair- size it. should be so cut up that?aa sm:n- 1 ber of articles can be mad6 from it, and nothing wansted.
