CHILDS BED COVER.
Application filed October 26, 1925. Serial No. 64,763.
This invention relates to new and useful improvements in childrens crib covers, and consists in the devices and combinations of devices illustrated, described and more particularly pointed out in the claims appended hereto.
One of the objects of the invention is to produce a cover which will not be displaced relative to a childs crib or similar resting place, or relative to the occupant, by reason of restless movements of the child.
Another object is to construct a cover which, without disarrangement, will permit of free movements of the child and permit of turning from one position to another, and
, yet hold the child under proper protection.
Another object is to produce a cover which, while removably attached to thecrib, will permit of the insertion or removal of the chid, without detaching the cover from the on Another object of the invention is to produce a cover having means for ready attachment to the crib, but which may be quickly detached from the cover when it is desired to launder the cover. I
Another object of the invention is to provide a head-piece of washable material and readily detachable means whereby the headpiece may be easily removed and washed when soiled, before the cover proper becomes so soiled as to require laundering of the cover.
The foregoing objects and other advan tages will be manifest as I proceed to describe my invention, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, in which- Figure 1 illustrates in a plan view a cover emlbodying my invention, detached from the on Figure 2 is a longitudinal sectional view ofthe same, the section being taken in the vertical plane indicated by the dotted line 2-2 of Figure 1.
Figure 3 is a top plan view of a portion of the smaller member of the cover, to more clearly illustrate certain details hereinafter mentioned.
Figure 4 is a vertical sectional View, enlarged, of the same portion of the cover to show the superposed relation of the body bands.
Figure 5 is a view in perspective of one means for detachably connecting the cover to the crib.
In said drawings, A represents the larger,
and B the smaller units of the cover, shown in proper juxtaposition in Figure 1. These two units may be made of any fabric suitable for use as a coverlette and of a size adapted for the bed or crib in which they are to be used.
At theirrespective corners as well as at other convenient places, are fabric loops 1, which severally extend outwardly from the unit margins, and which are adapted to be engaged by a metal split ring 2. To this ring 2 may be attached any suitable fastening means, such for instance as the conventional snap hook 3 shown in Fig. 5. The ring 2 may be readily detached from its loop 1 when it is desired to launder the cover, thus avoiding rusting of the ring as a result of washing operations, and keeping the ring 2 and hook 8 in neat appearance.
The upper margin of the lower and the larger cover unit'A, is cut away and finished as shown at 4 to provide a suitable neck opening. Upon the lower, median portion of the upper cover unit B is ahead-piece 5 of linen or other washable fabric, removably secured to the unit B by any suitable means, such as the buttons 6 and button holes 7. Spaced apart tapes 8, 8, each sewed at one end to the unit B, are passed through eye lets 8 in the head-piece 5 in position convenient for tying to similar tapes 9, 9, sewed to the top margin of the lower unit A. Similarly, on each side of the-head-piece 5 is a tape 10 sewed at one end to the unit B and adapted to be tied to the aligned tape 11 on the unit A.
Upon the unit B at or near its lower margin 13 are the two body band members 14, 15, each sewed at one end to the unit B, one on one side and one on the other of the headpiece 5. The bands 14, 15, are in alignment with their free ends overlapping. They may be spread apart as indicated in Fig. 3, so as to form, with the bottom margin of the unit B, a band which will surround the body of the child.
Thecover units having been placed on the crib and secured in the position shown in Figure 1, by the snap-hooks 3, and the upper portion of the unit A overlapping, as shown, the lower portion of the unit B, the invention will function as follows:
First, the top of the unit A will be unfastened and turned back sufficiently to permit the child to be laid in proper position under the lower unit A and with the head and shoulders upon the unit B. The free ends of the two band members 14: and "15 'arethen brought up under the arms of the child and across its chest, and secured together by a common safety'p'in'or otherwise.
A pillow, if desired, may be placed under the head, the fastenings of the head-piece 5 permitting of such iullness thereof-as to accommodate a pillow on the unitB beneath the hiead-piece5.
The cover unit A isthen brought back to proper position, withthe ueck opening l below the childschin, the tapes 10, 11, -properly tied to hold 'theuni'ts A-and B together, and the tapes 8 and 9 also tied,-one on-each side of'the childsneck, thusproperly tucking the child in place. The neck opening .4 of course will be suiiiciently large to prevent constriction about the childs neck.
It will be found that :the child will be properly coveredas desired, will enjoyconsiderable 'treedom of movement and may freely turn andtwist without either disturbing, or being able tocrawl out tromiunder, the cover.
, Thecover may be washedas desired and the headpiece-5 'be changed-as often as desired. c
