DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT

[0020] A decoration lace according to preferred embodiments of the present invention will now be described in detail with reference to the accompanying drawings.

[0021] FIG. 1 is a perspective view illustrating a decoration lace according to the first embodiment of the present invention. FIG. 2 is a cross-sectional view illustrating an engaging state of the decoration lace according to the first embodiment of the present invention. FIG. 3 is a perspective view illustrating a decoration lace according to a modified example of the first embodiment of the present invention.

[0022] Referring to the drawings, the decoration lace according to the first embodiment is characterized in that a plurality of decoration strings is sequentially arranged side by side, and then is connected to each other by sewing to form the decoration lace.

[0023] At least three or more decoration strings 100 are arranged side by side, and are connected to each other by the sewing to form a decoration lace 10.

[0024] Specifically, the decoration lace 10 according to the embodiment of the present invention is not made by embroidering a fabric with a thread or putting a decoration string or piping over the fabric in the form of single line according to the related art, but is made by connecting the plurality of decoration strings 100 in the form of a band. When the decoration lace 10 is applied to the fabric, the present invention has decorating beauty and a three-dimensional effect. Also, since the decoration strings 100 are connected to each other by the sewing, the decoration strings are firmly connected to each other. In addition, since a seam line for sewing the decoration lace 10 is provided in one pattern, decoration of the decoration lace is further improved.

[0025] The decoration strings 100 are connected to each other by a seam line 200 which is formed in the shape of a zigzag in a longitudinal direction. Specifically, since the plurality of decoration strings 100 are connected to each other by the seam line 200 which is sewn in the shape of the zigzag in the longitudinal direction to form the decoration lace 10, the decoration string 100 can be firmly connected to adjacent decoration strings. Also, since the zigzag-shaped seam line 200 is provided in single pattern of the decoration lace, when the decoration lace 10 is applied to the fabric, the decoration is further improved. The zigzag-shaped seam line 200 can be provided in various patterns if the seam line is formed by threads of various colors.

[0026] More specifically, as illustrated in FIG. 2, a top thread 201 fed from an upper portion of the decoration string by a needle is locked by a bottom thread 202 located under a lower portion of the decoration string 100 to make a knot, and then two threads 201 and 202 are locked to the decoration string 100, thereby forming the zigzag-shaped seam line 200. In other words, since the decoration strings 100 are sequentially woven by the top thread 201 and the bottom thread 202, the decoration strings 100 can be firmed connected to each other. Therefore, when the decoration lace 10 is fabricated, it has a strong structure.

[0027] When at least five or more decoration strings 100 are provided, it is preferable to connect the decoration strings by two zigzag-shaped seam lines.

[0028] The method of fabricating the decoration lace 10 by connecting the decoration strings with two zigzag-shaped seam lines 210 and 220 can be applied to the case where 5 or more decoration lines 100 are provided. However, it is most preferable to connect five decoration strings 100 with two zigzag-shaped seam lines 210 and 220, in view of a coupling force of the decoration strings 100 and the efficiency of fabrication.

[0029] As illustrated in FIG. 3, the zigzag-shaped seam lines 200 are symmetrically arranged on both sides of the decoration string which is located at a center among the decoration strings, and includes a first zigzag-shaped seam line 210 to sew the decoration strings 100 located on one side of the center decoration string 101, and a second zigzag-shaped seam line 220 to sew the decoration strings 100 located on the other side of the center decoration string 101. Specifically, as the number of the decoration strings 100 is increased, the zigzag-shaped seam line 200 is separated into the first zigzag-shaped seam line 210 and the second zigzag-shaped seam line 220 to divide the decoration lace 10 respectively, so that the decoration laces 10 can be firmly connected to each other even though the decoration lace has a large area.

[0030] Inner sides of the first and second zigzag-shaped seam lines 210 and 220 are preferably connected to the center decoration string 101 by weaving. Specifically, the first zigzag-shaped seam line 210 and the second zigzag-shaped seam line 220 which are connected to both sides of the decoration lace 10 on the basis of the center decoration string 101 are connected to the center decoration string 101 by weaving S, so that both sides of the decoration lace 10 are connected to each other. The inner sides of the first zigzag-shaped seam line 210 and the second zigzag-shaped seam line 220 are interlaced with the center decoration string 101 to firmly form the decoration lace 10.

[0031] The decoration string 100 of the present invention includes a bead string or cord, a metal string or wire, a synthetic resin string or cord, a piping, a thick thread, and so forth, but the bead string or cord is preferably used as the decoration string.

[0032] Preferably, the decoration string 100 is the bead string that consists of a plurality of beads 110 and a beading cord 120 for beading the beads 110. The bead strings are connected to each other by interlacing the top thread 201 and the bottom thread 202 with the beading cord 120. With the above configuration, when the bead strings are connected to each other by interlacing the top thread 201 and the bottom thread 202 with the beading cord 120, the top thread 201 and the bottom thread 202 are firmly supported by the beads 110. Also, since the top thread 201 and the bottom thread 202 are placed between the beads 110 so as not to be exposed to the exterior, the top thread 201 and the bottom thread 202 are prevented from being broken due to external friction.

[0033] According to the embodiment described above, the plurality of decoration strings are arranged and sewn side by side to form the decoration lace, and the decoration lace is cut to have a desired length. The decoration lace can be applied to a side line of pants, or a collar, a neckline and a sleeve cuff of a shirt by sewing, thereby achieving decorating beauty and a three-dimensional effect.

[0034] FIG. 4 is a perspective view illustrating a decoration lace according to the second embodiment of the present invention. FIG. 5 is a cross-sectional view illustrating an engaging state of the decoration lace according to the second embodiment of the present invention. FIG. 6 is a perspective view illustrating a decoration lace according to a modified example of the second embodiment of the present invention.

[0035] The decoration lace according to the second embodiment is substantially identical to that according to the first embodiment, except that a plurality of decoration strings is sewn on a fabric, and the decoration lace is directly formed on the fabric.

[0036] According to the second embodiment, at least three or more decoration strings 100 are arranged side by side on a surface a fabric 1, and are connected to each other and the surface by the sewing to form a decoration lace 10.

[0037] Specifically, the decoration lace 10 according to the embodiment of the present invention is not made by embroidering a fabric with a thread or putting a decoration string or piping over the fabric in the form of single line according to the related art, but is made by connecting the plurality of decoration strings 100 on the fabric 1 in the form of a band. When the decoration lace 10 is applied to the fabric, the present invention has decorating beauty and a three-dimensional effect. Also, since the decoration strings 100 are connected to each other by the sewing and then are sewn on the fabric 1, the decoration strings are firmly connected to each other. In addition, since a seam line for sewing the decoration lace 10 is provided in one pattern, decoration of the decoration lace is further improved.

[0038] The decoration strings 100 are connected to each other by a seam line 200 which is formed in the shape of a zigzag in a longitudinal direction. Specifically, since the plurality of decoration strings 100 are connected to each other by the seam line 200 which is sewn in the shape of the zigzag in the longitudinal direction to form the decoration lace 10, the decoration string 100 can be firmly connected to adjacent decoration strings. Also, since the zigzag-shaped seam line 200 is provided in single pattern of the decoration lace, when the decoration lace 10 is applied to the fabric, the decoration is further improved.

[0039] More specifically, as illustrated in FIG. 5, a top thread 201 fed from an upper portion of the decoration string by a needle is locked by a bottom thread 202 located under a lower portion of the fabric to form make a knot, and then two threads 201 and 202 are locked to the decoration string 100 and then are sewn on the fabric. In other words, since the decoration strings 100 are sequentially woven by the top thread 201 and the bottom thread 202 and then are sewn on the fabric 1, the decoration strings 100 can be firmed connected to each other. Therefore, when the decoration lace 10 is fabricated on the fabric 1, it has a strong structure.

[0040] When at least five or more decoration strings 100 are provided on the fabric 1, it is preferable to connect the decoration strings by two zigzag-shaped seam lines.

[0041] The method of fabricating the decoration lace 10 on the fabric 1 by connecting the decoration strings with two zigzag-shaped seam lines 210 and 220 can be applied to the case where 5 or more decoration lines 100 are provided. However, it is most preferable to connect five decoration strings 100 on the fabric 1 with two zigzag-shaped seam lines 210 and 220, in view of a coupling force of the decoration strings 100 and the efficiency of fabrication.

[0042] As illustrated in FIG. 6, the zigzag-shaped seam lines 200 are symmetrically arranged on both sides of the decoration string which is located at a center among the decoration strings, and includes a first zigzag-shaped seam line 210 sewn on the fabric 1 to sew the decoration strings 100 located on one side of the center decoration string 101, and a second zigzag-shaped seam line 220 sewn on the fabric 1 to sew the decoration strings 100 located on the other side of the center decoration string 101. Specifically, as the number of the decoration strings 100 is increased, the zigzag-shaped seam line 200 is separated into the first zigzag-shaped seam line 210 and the second zigzag-shaped seam line 220 to divide the decoration lace 10 sewn on the fabric 1 respectively, so that the decoration laces 10 can be firmly connected to each other on the fabric 1 even though the decoration lace has a large area.

[0043] Inner sides of the first and second zigzag-shaped seam lines 210 and 220 are preferably connected to the center decoration string 101 by weaving and then are sewn on the fabric 1. Specifically, the first zigzag-shaped seam line 210 and the second zigzag-shaped seam line 220 which are connected to both sides of the decoration lace 10 on the basis of the center decoration string 101 are connected to the center decoration string 101 by weaving S and then are sewn on the fabric 1, so that both sides of the decoration lace 10 are connected to each other. The inner sides of the first zigzag-shaped seam line 210 and the second zigzag-shaped seam line 220 are interlaced with the center decoration string 101 to firmly form the decoration lace 10 on the fabric 1.

[0044] The decoration string 100 of the present invention includes a bead string or cord, a metal string or wire, a synthetic resin string or cord, a piping, a thick thread, and so forth, but the bead string or cord is preferably used as the decoration string.

[0045] Preferably, the decoration string 100 is the bead string that consists of a plurality of beads 110 and a beading cord 120 for beading the beads 110. The bead strings are connected to each other by interlacing the top thread 201 and the bottom thread 202 with the beading cord 120. With the above configuration, when the bead strings are connected to each other by interlacing the top thread 201 and the bottom thread 202 with the beading cord 120 and sewing the threads on the fabric 1, the top thread 201 and the bottom thread 202 are firmly supported by the beads 110. Also, since the top thread 201 and the bottom thread 202 are placed between the beads 110 so as not to be exposed to the exterior, the top thread 201 and the bottom thread 202 are prevented from being broken due to external friction.

[0046] According to the embodiment described above, the plurality of decoration strings are arranged on the fabric and sewn side by side to form the decoration lace, and the decoration lace is cut to have a desired length. The decoration lace can be applied to a side line of pants, or a collar, a neckline and a sleeve cuff of a shirt by sewing, thereby achieving decorating beauty and a three-dimensional effect.

[0047] The method of fabricating the decoration lace according to the present invention will now be described.

[0048] At least three decoration strings 100 are arranged side by side, and are sequentially fed to a pressor foot 20 of a sewing machine. It is preferable that the decoration strings 100 are continuously fed from bobbins.

[0049] A bottom surface of the presser foot 20 is preferably provided with guide grooves 21 formed at regular intervals to feed the decoration strings 100 side by side. Specifically, when the decoration strings 100 are fed to the presser foot 20, the decoration strings 100 are moved along the guide grooves 21, so that the plurality of decoration strings 100 can be arranged in a row and can be accurately sewn by a first needle 31 and a second needle 32 which will be described later.

[0050] The decoration strings 100 fed to the presser foot 20 are sewn by the first needle 31 and the second needle 32 which are spaced apart from each other in a diagonal direction.

[0051] More specifically, the first needle 31 sews the decoration strings 100 which are located at one side of the center decoration string 101, which is located at the center of the decoration strings 101, in a zigzag pattern, and the second needle 32 sews the decoration strings 100 which are located at the other side of the center decoration string 101, which is located at the center of the decoration strings 101, in a zigzag pattern, thereby connecting the decoration strings.

[0052] The first needle 31 forms the first zigzag-shaped seam line 210 while moving between the center decoration string 101 and the decoration strings 100 which are located at one side of the center decoration string 101, to sew the decoration strings 101 which are located at one side. The second needle 32 forms the second zigzag-shaped seam line 220 while moving between the center decoration string 101 and the decoration strings 100 which are located at the other side of the center decoration string 101, to sew the decoration strings 101 which are located at the other side.

[0053] As illustrated in FIG. 10, the first needle 31 and the second needle 32 are spaced apart from each other by a half W of a width of the decoration lace 10 in a width direction, and by a half L of a pitch of the first and second zigzag-shaped seam lines 210 and 220 in a longitudinal direction, so that the second zigzag-shaped seam line 220 is formed while following the first zigzag-shaped seam line 210.

[0054] When the second zigzag-shaped seam line 220 is formed while following the first zigzag-shaped seam line 210, inner sides of the first and second zigzag-shaped seam lines 210 and 220 are connected to the center decoration string 101 by weaving S. Specifically, the first zigzag-shaped seam line 210 and the second zigzag-shaped seam line 220 which are connected to both sides of the decoration lace 10 on the basis of the center decoration string 101 are connected to the center decoration string 101 by weaving S, so that both sides of the decoration lace 10 are connected to each other. The inner sides of the first zigzag-shaped seam line 210 and the second zigzag-shaped seam line 220 are interlaced with the center decoration string 101 to firmly form the decoration lace 10.

[0055] While the present invention has been described with reference to the particular illustrative embodiments, it is not to be restricted by the embodiments but only by the appended claims. It is to be appreciated that those skilled in the art can change or modify the embodiments without departing from the scope and spirit of the present invention.

[0056] Specifically, the decoration lace according to the present invention is not only applied to the clothes and the fabric to achieve the decorating effect, but also can be made as accessories, such as a pull tab for a slide fastener, a string for a mobile phone, a ring, or a bracelet, to achieve the decorating effect. In addition, if a plurality of decoration laces according to the present invention is connected to each other, the decoration lace can have varied length or width.
