Parke, Sioux Falls, S. Dak. Application November 6, 1936, SeriallNo. 109,562 5 Claims. This invention relates to belt buckles and more particularly to an improved method of covering same with cloth or the like. The primary object of the invention is to pro 5 vide means for expeditiously covering the buckle in a neat and substantial manner and without wrinkling‘ of the cover. (Cl. 24-163) turned as shown at I3, and further consists of a reversely disposed member Ill likewise covered with a base cloth I5 which latter has its free edges inturned at I6 whereupon the two parts are telescoped as shown in Fig. 5 and are hence rigidly secured in position through friction. The covering cloth "l, stitched as shown at 6, is then In the drawing, Fig. 1 is a plan View showing the buckle placed applied, and has one edge stitched at I'l to the base cloth I4 of the buckle member Il following 10 upon a sheet of paper, which latter may be of which the end or terminal I8 of the cloth is turned or folded inwardly as shown at i9 at Fig. 6 and stitched at 20 adj-acent the line of fold the ordinary wrapping type; Fig. 2 is a similar View showing the paper pattern provided by cutting away the paper at the edges of the buckle; 15 Fig. 3 is a similar view showing the paper pat tern placed upon a folded sheet of the cover ing material, which may be cloth or the like, the cloth being folded or doubled upon itself as shown; 20 Fig. 4 is a section on line 4--4 of Fig. 3; Fig. 5 is an enlarged section on line 5-5 of Fig. 7 just prior to the final operation; Fig. 6 is a view similar to Fig. 5, showing the parts in final assembled form; Fig. '7 is a bottom plan View of the completed 25 buckle. In proceeding in accordance with the present invention, a piece of paper I, which may be of the ordinary wrapping type, has a beltl buckle 30 2 superimposed thereon. An outline of the buckle is then drawn upon the paper as shown at 2', following which the paper pattern 3 is cut out as shown in Fig. 2. The pattern 3 is then laid upon a folded piece of cloth 1, which latter î constitutes the covering. The pattern is then stitched as indicated at 8 to the cloth covering 1. Lines of marking ¿l which are of U-shape and spaced at 5 are then made to accommodate the usual buckle cross member in instances where the, 40 latter is integral with the buckle frame S. The stitched cloth and> paper are then` cut away as indicated at S, following which the cloth is cut on the line I@ to provide a structure shown in Fig. 4 and thereafter the cloth is turned in - side out so that the machine stitches S occur on the inside. In instances where the cross mem ber 6 is integral with the frame, the back of the cover is cut out at 9 in spaced confront ing U-cuts, as shown in Fig. 3 to accommodate same and then stitched after the buckle has been applied as shown in Figs. 5 and 6. The buckle 2 may be of any form, and as here shown, by way of example, consist of an inner member of U-cross section over which a piece 55 of base cloth I2 is applied and has its: ends in to the covering cloth I6, and the ends of the covering 1 resultant from the cuts d, are stitched together as shown as 2|, in Fig. 7, which stitches occur in alinement with the cross bar l. The purpose of arranging the part of the pat tern occurring along line 4_4 in Fig. 3, parallel to the line of fold of covering '1, which latter is folded on the bias at ‘I’ as therein shown, tends to keep the covering ’I under proper tension when applied to the buckle. From the foregoing it will be seen that the invention provides a simple manner of covering buckles in a neat way and with the covering material taut throughout. While the belt buckle has been shown-as com prised of two telescopic parts, nevertheless other forms can be used, such as integral one-piece buckles, providing same are equipped with a base cloth to which the covering material can be stitched. 'I'he provision of this telescopic form of buckle is advantageous in that the cloth base can be stretched over same and the parts then telescoped without the use of extraneous fasten 35 ing means. What is claimed is: 1. A method of covering belt buckles having a cloth base or the like, which resides in initially placing the buckle upon a piece of paper, then outlining the buckle on the paper to provide a pattern, then in sewing the pattern to a piece of covering material, which has been folded on the bias, along a line to dei-lne the buckle open ing, then in cutting away the material confined within said line of stitching to provide a pair of sides, and finally in turning the covering ma terial inside out to conceal the stitching and then stretching same about the cloth base and stitching one terminal of one side of the cover ing material to the outer side of the cloth base and then in stitching the other terminal of the other side of the covering material to the cloth base over the said ñrst terminal to conceal the latter. 55 2 2,076,249 2. The method of covering belt buckles as set forth in claim 1, wherein the free edge of the terminal of the other side is turned inwardly prior to its stitching to the cloth base. 3. A method of covering belt buckles having a cloth base, or the like, which resides in ini tially placing the buckle upon a piece of paper, then outlining the buckle on the paper to provide a pattern, then in sewing the pattern to a piece 10 of covering material, to define the buckle open ing, then in cutting away the material confined within said line of stitching to provide a pair of sides, and ñnally in turning the covering ma terial inside out to conceal the stitching and 15 then stretching same about the cloth base and stitching one terminal of one side of the cover ing material to the outer side of the cloth base and then in stitching the other terminal of the other side of the covering material to the cloth base over the said ñrst terminal to conceal the latter. 4. A belt buckle comprising a frame having a cloth base secured thereover to provide a stitch receiving member, and a covering consisting of two parts secured together along their inner sides and having one of their outer sides engaging the outer side of the cloth base and the other side folded inwardly upon itself and extending 10 over said first named outer side to conceal its edge and being stitched to the cloth base. 5. A belt buckle in accordance with claim 4, wherein the first named outer side is stitched to the ñrst named outer side and wherein the 15 stitching of the second named outer sides occurs along its said line of fold.
