This sheet of patterns is for a wide range of textiles for the domestic interior and dress. It includes patterns for cushions, d'oyleys (decorative mats for the table), a mat for the table centre, 'tea serviettes' (table napkins), a bag, handkerchiefs, a nightdress, a baby's robe and hood, a chair back, a candle shade, a 'photos album cover'. Not only does this sheet of patterns demonstrate an economical use of paper with as many patterns as can be fitted onto each side of the paper included but the patterns are for the different media of textiles, a wooden clock and a leather belt. The patterns are not only for embroidery but also for Venetian point lace and Milan lace.

The sheet was published by, and as a supplement, to the November, 1910 edition of The Paris Journal of Fancy Work and Fashion and gives an insight into the variety of goods which could be made in and for the home. Each pattern is numbered and appears on an index on the sheet allowing the object for which the pattern is made to be identified.
