COMBINED BAG AND CUSHION.
Application filed April 26,
This invention has for its object to provide an article which may be used as a bag or as a cushion, pillow or the like, and which, more particularly can be rendered waterproof for either of the said purposes.
According to the invention such a bag and cushion combination consists of abag made of waterproof material lined at one or both' of its sides with a padding covered by ordim nary fabric, such as cotton, silk or the like.
so that the said padding or addings form a cushion within a water proo envelope, which is adapted to be turned inside out.
When only one side of the bag is lined with padding and the bag is turned inside out a water roof pocket is formed at the back of the cus ion with a front covering of ordinary fabric. If, however, both sides of the bag are padded the turning inside out of the bag produces a cushion, the front and back of which are covered with ordinary fabriewhile between the two paddings the two sides of the bag form a waterproof pocket.
In order to more fully described the invention reference is had to the accompanying drawings, in which by wa of example,
Fig. 1 shows a combine bag and cushion embodying the invention in which one side of the bag only is lined while Fig. 2 shows the same combination after having been turned inside out.
Fig. 3 is a sectional view of the same combiniation in the form represented in Fig. 1, an
Fig. 4 a similar view in the form represented in Fig. 2.
- Fig. 5 shows in a sectional view a bag lined at both sides, and
Fig. 6 the same when reversed.
In the example shown in Figs. 1 to 4 a waterproof bag of substantially rectangular configuration, is formed by the two sides A and A of waterproof material. A cushion is formed on the inside of the side A (Fig. 3) 45 by a padding B covered by ordinary fabric C, so that the cushion, B, G, is enveloped in a waterproof cover A, A. By turning the bag inside out (Figs. 2 and 4) the sides A and A form between them a waterproof to pocket D (Fig. 4) while the fabric C now forms the outside front covering of the cushion.
In the modification shown in Figs. 5 and 6 the waterproof bag A, A, is lined at both 55 sides with padding B, B covered by ordia carrying handle may e attac e wet ob'ects, as for instance, bat
presented within 1927, Serial 1T0. 188,855, and in Great Britain January 10, im.
nary fabric 0, C respectively, so that when the bag is turned inside out (Fig. 6) both cushions B, C, and B C are exposed and a waterproof pocket D is formed between them.
In order to provide means for closin the bag a draw-cord E (as shown in the rawings) may be fitted into the seams around the opening of the bag. Any other closure means, such as buttons and button holes, press buttons, hooks and e es, sliding clasp fasteners, or the like ma em 10 ed and to the combination.
It is obvious that the combination bagand cushion may be of any desired configuration.
This bag and cushion combination is particularly suitable for outdoor use both for carrying purposes as well as providing damp proof seating accommodation when adjusted inthe manner shown in Figs. 1, 3, 4 and 5, for instance in connection wlth excursions, picnics or the like. As a cushion it prevents the bad effects upon health from dam seats. As a bag in the adjustment shown in igs. 2, 4 and 6,'it is suitable for carrying damp or ing suits after t e bath.
