An Elegant Design for a Piano Cover

A very beautiful piano cover is made of dark blue cloth, Indian red or maroon broadcloth, worked with a border of sunflowers, which is set on a band of broadcloth inserted between narrow bands of the material used for the cover. Small sunflowers cut out of yellow felt, the centres of which are brown plush, are appliqued in a continuous vine upon the border, with stalks worked in brown crewel and foliage cut from shades of green cloth on serge and applied. The edges can be worked in loose buttonhole stitch in crewel of the same yellow. The leaves may be veined and edged with a light or dark green crewel in contrast with the ground of the leaf. A centre piece may also be made from the same design in the shape of a wreath, but this is optional.—New York Recorder.
