(Cl. 113-116) This invention relates to frames for, ladies’hand method for conveniently and eifectively covering over and covering‘a portion of the other side of _ the blank. The fabric 5, as shown in Fig. 4, has one side thereof provided with adhesive tape 6 _ frames with fabric, leather or similar material. or a similar cementitious material which is pro bags and the like, and more particularly to a Heretofore, hand bag frames, for example of the channel type, have been ?rst formed of metal blanks and bent generally into a U-shape, after which the fabric or leather was applied thereto. In applying the material to the frame, it was the '10 practice to cut the material into strips and coat one side thereof with a liquid adhesive, and then vided substantially integral with the fabric, Fr. 5 The adhesive tape 6 obviously facilitates the ap- ' plication of .the fabric to the blank 4, as it is only necessary to press the adhesive tape on to the blank in the proper position and thereby ob viating the necessity of using glue or other liquid 10 adhesives‘ as heretofore has been necessary in . attach the strips to the completely formed frame. _ applying fabric to metal hand bag fra'mes. ' After the blank 4 has been covered as above This method obviously was tedious and incon described, it is placed in amachine and formed into a. channel 1 as shown in Fig. 2, after which 15 tionable to such an extent that many bag manu facturers would send the frames out to other the channel 1 is bent into a U-shaped frame8 establishments especially for the purpose of hav ' as disclosed in Fig. 3.

A further object is the provision of a fabric having adhesive tape attached to one side thereof to enable the ready application of the fabric to that by using a fabric 5 having a coating '6 of ’ a hand bag frame without necessitating the ap plication of liquid adhesive to the strip as here 30 tofore has been the case. In some instances it may be desirable to. ?rst form the metal blank into the channel ‘I before applying the fabric. In such cases, it is apparent adhesive tape or the like attached thereto, the applying of the fabric to the channel ‘I is greatly 30 ' A further object is the provision of a method facilitated. ‘ ' ' From the above description, it will be seen that _ whereby a metal blank can be readily covered with by employing a fabric having a strip of adhesive a fabric or other material, and the blank- sub sequently bent into a channelled U-shaped hand— , tape attached thereto, it is possible to conven bag frame which is in condition for immediate iently and eifectivelycover hand bag frames of 35. , vuse in the manufacture of a hand bag. - any shape.
