This invention relates broadly to devices for warming the feet during cold weather, and the primary object of theinvention is to provide certain new and useful improve- 5 ments in foot warmers, one of the main objects of the invention being to provide a warmer of this character which is comparatively simple in construction, may be manufactured and retailed at a nominal cost,
is practical, and otherwise well adapted for the purpose designed.
Other objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent during a study of the following description, taken 1 in connection with the accompanying drawings, wherein:
Figure 1 is a perspective view of my im-" proved foot warmer.
Figure 2 is a detail sectional view, taken substantially on the line 22 of Figure 1.
Figure 8 is a similar View, taken substantially on the line 38 of Figure 1.
lVith reference more in detail to the drawings, it will be seen that my improved foot warmer comprises a main body or casing, designated generally by the reference character C, the said casing C comprising a bottom 5, consisting of an outer layer of fabric 6, the outer layer of fabric 6 being preferably gingham, and an inner layer of wool cloth 7. Between said inner and outer layers 6 and 7 is a filling, preferably of cotton batting 8. The casing C comprises further a peripheral wall 9, of a material corresponding to the material of the outer layer 6. The wall 9 rises from the bottom 5, and stitching '11 secures the lower'edge of the wall 9 and the marginal edges of the inner and outer layers 6 and 7 together, as
40 clearly disclosed in Figure 2. A top wall 10, at its marginal edge, is stitched to the upper edge of the peripheral wall 9, as at 12. The top wall 10 is provided with a pair of suitable openings 1813. Areinforcing annulus 1 1 of leather, or any other suitable material is folded upon itself, in a manner clearly suggested in Figures 2 and 3, and provides an annular channel for receiving the edge of the top wall 10, at the opening Arranged within the outer casing C is a a 16, a heel portion 17, and a leg portion 18.
The leg portion 18 is of course, open at its top for receiving the foot of the wearer, and at its upper opened end, the leg portion 18 is stitched to the annular reinforcing member 14-, which reinforcing member 1 1 is in turn stitched to the top 10 through the medium of stitching 19. The sole of the boot is designated by the reference character 20 and the soles 20 of the boots, are preferably formed from Woolen material of suitable thickness, the soles 2O resting on the inner layer 7 of the bottom 5, of the casing. Within the space between the peripheral Wall 9 of the outer casing O and the boots 15 and also arranged between the boots, is a filler of cotton batting 8.
In actual practice, both feet of the user are inserted throughthe respective holes 13 to be received, each by a boot 15, and it is apparent that in View of the fillers 8 and 8, a heavy and warm covering is formed for the fee Even though I have herein shown and described the preferred embodiment of my in vention, it is to be understood that the same is susceptible to changes fully comprehended by the spirit ofthe invention as herein described, and the scope of the appended claim. I
hat is claimed is:
A foot warmer comprising a casing in-- cluding a bottom wall, a top wall, and a peripheral wall connecting said top and bottom walls, said bottom wall comprising spaced inner and outer layersof fabric, a
filling material arranged in the space between said inner and; outer layers offabric,
said top wall being provided with a pair of leg accommodating openings, a pair of separable boots arranged in said casing and supported on said inner layer of fabric, said boots at their upper ends registering with said leg accommodating openings,
means for securing the upper edges of said boots to said t op wall at the edge of the respective leg accommodating openings, and filling material arranged between said boots, 5 and between the boots andperipheral wall of the casing for substantially enveloping the boots.
