1. Hold the cloth firmly with the hands as in Fig. 11.

2. Beginning at the upper right-hand end of the cloth, turn down towards you the edge one-fourth of an inch in depth, for three or four inches.

3. Holding the cloth tightly between the hands, crease the edge with the end of the thumb-nail and the cushion of the left forefinger, until it will remain flat and has a sharp edge.

4. Fold and crease the next three inches in the same manner, and so continue to the end.

5. Holding the right-hand corner of the fold firmly, crease the entire length.
