IRONING BOARD BAG Filed Aug. 26,1940 2 Sheets-Sheet 1 In venior 4/17194/1 hora/ik A itomey M63 6, 1941. ov 2,241,309

' IRONING-BOARD BAG Filed Aug. 26, 1940 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 In ventor 4/7 ran fibre/Hf I By A tiome y Patented May 6, 1941 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 3 Claims.

This invention relates to a bag for an ironing board, the general object of the invention being to provide yieldable means for holding the open end of the bag to one end of the board so that the bag can be readily removed from the board and replaced thereon and opened to permit articles to be placed therein or removed therefrom.

This invention also consists in certain other features of construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts to be hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings and specifically pointed out in I the appended claims.

In describing the invention in detail, reference will be had to the accompanying drawings wherein like characters denote like or corresponding parts throughout the several views, and in which:

Figure l is a perspective view showing the bag supported on one end of the board, this view showing in dotted lines how the bag can be opened to permit articles to be placed therein or removed therefrom.

Figure 2 is an elevational view of the bag.

Figure 3 is a vertical sectional View through Figure 1.

Figure 4 is a fragmentary View looking toward the open end of the bag.

Figure 5 is a View of one of the hook members.

Figure 6 is a view of one of the tubes used with the device.

In these drawings the bag is shown at B and said bag is formed with a hem H which surrounds the open top of the bag and the bag at its open end is made large so that the hem can be shortened when the open end is held around one end of the board A as shown in Figure 1. A coil spring I is placed in the hem at one side of the bag and has its ends connected with the hooks 2, each hook being preferably formed of fiat stock as shown in Figure 5 with a hole 3 in one end thereof for receiving an end of the spring. Tubes 4 of rubber are placed over the ends of the spring and the adjacent ends of the hooks as shown in Figure 4. The tubes cover the ends of the springs and prevent disengagement of the spring ends from the hooks. The beaks of the hooks pass through the hem parts at the sides of the bag and the ends of each beak are connected to an elastic strip 6 by rivets l which pass through the holes 8 in the hooks and through the ends of the strap 6 and through portions of the hemmed parts of the bag, the strap passing through that part of the hem which is at the opposite side of the bag from that which contains the spring I. Thus the spring I and the elastic strap 6 will tend to close the bag and will hold the bag with its open end surrounding an end of an ironing board as shown in Figure 1. A handle forming strap II] is connected with that part of the bag which contains the elastic strap 6 so that by pulling upon this strap In the bag can be opened, while on the board, as shown in Figure 1, so that articles can be placed in the bag or removed therefrom without removing the bag from the board, as shown in dotted lines in Figure 1. As shown in this figure the bag is placed on the board with the spring containing part lowermost. A looped strap l I is connected to one edge of the bag and passes around that part of the hem which contains one of the hooks so that by pulling upon this strap II this book can be moved outwardly to permit the bag to be removed from the board or placed thereon with but little effort. Thus it will be seen that the bag is snugly held with its open end around one end of the board so that the bag can be opened to place articles therein or to remove articles therefrom without removing the bag from the board and the bag can be easily removed from the end of the board or placed thereon.

It is thought from the foregoing description that the advantages and novel features of the invention will be readily apparent.

It is to be understood that changes may be made in the construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts provided that such changes fall within the scope of the appended claims.

Having described the invention, what is claimed as new 1s:

1. A bag for use with an ironing board comprising a bag having one end open, a hem formed around the open end, a spring in a part of the hem, hooks in other portions of the hem and having their ends connected with the ends of the spring and an elastic strap in another part of the hem and connected with the opposite ends of the hooks.

2. A bag for use with "an ironing board comprising a bag having a hem around the open end, a spring in a side part of the hem, hooks connected with the ends of the spring and located in edge parts of the hem, an elastic strap in another side part of the hem and connected with the opposite ends of the hooks, a strap handle connected with the bag adjacent the parts through which the elastic strap passes and resillent tubes surrounding the ends of the spring and the adjacent ends of the hooks.

3. A bag for use with an ironing board comthrough which the elastic strap passes, resilient tubes surrounding the ends of the spring and the adjacent ends of the hooks, and a strap connected with that part of the bag through which one hook 5 passes.
