S. ASCH CHILD'S BIB Filed Nov. 9, 1939 June 1Q, 1941.

INVENTOR ATTOR N EY Patented June 10, 1941 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE cmm's BIB Sunny Asch, New York, N. Y.

Application November 9, 1939, Serial No. 303,502

Claims.

This invention relates to new and useful improvements in a child's bib.

The invention has for an object the construction of a bib which is characterized by a front sheet of moisture absorbent cloth material adapted to engage over the chest and front of a baby and having a neck cutout, a collar-like extension mounted upon the said front sheet in a particular manner, and an arrangement for supporting the bib in place upon the child.

Still further the invention contemplates the use of a waterproof back sheet for extending behind the front sheet and preventing the clothes of the child from becoming wet by moisture which may pass through the moisture absorbent sheet.

Still further the invention contemplates the provision of novel means for releasably connect ing the waterproof back sheet in position upon the back of the front moisture absorbent sheet.

For further comprehension of the invention, and of the objects and advantages thereof, reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawing, and to the appended claims in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth.

In the accompanying drawing forming a material part of this disclosure:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a child's bib constructed according to this invention.

Fig. 2 is a horizontal sectional view taken on the line 2-2 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 3 is a fragmentary vertical sectional view taken on the line 3-3 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 4 is a horizontal sectional view taken on the line 4-4 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 5 is a fragmentary front elevational view of a child's bib constructed in accordance with a modification of this invention.

Fig. 6 is a fragmentary front elevational view of a portion of the back sheet illustrated in Fig. 5.

Fig. 7 is a fragmentary front elevational view of a portion of the front sheet illustrated in Fig. 5, with the back sheet removed.

Fig. 8 is a fragmentary vertical sectional view taken on the line 8-8 of Fig. 5.

Fig. 9 is a perspective view of the absorbent cloth bib member.

The child's bib, in accordance with this inven tion, includes a front sheet of V moisture absorbent cloth material Ill adapted to engage over the chest and front of a child and having a neck cutout II. A collar-like extension I: is mounted upon the said front sheet I I for location beneath the chin of the child and projects frontwards. A

strip of tape I3 is attached to the ends of the neck opening by which the bib may be tied in place on the child. A waterproof back sheet M is provided for extending behind the front sheet I!) to prevent the passage of liquids through the front sheet which may wet the baby's clothes.

Preferably, the front sheet H1 is made of towelling material. A strip of binding material I5 is extended around the edges of the sheet I 0 for finishing same. The top area [5 of this binding material serves to hold the top edge of the sheet 10 relatively stiff so that it stands extended even though it is supported at points inwards from the side edges by the tape l3.

The collar-like extension 12 is also formed from towelling material. A strip of the material is bent at its longitudinal center l2 so as to be of double layers. The outer ends of these double layers are stitched together and the side edges engage immediately behind an inturned flange Ill bent inwards from the neck opening ll of the material Ill. The tape l3 extends around the back of the neck opening II and also has a flange portion l3 bent inwards from an edge thereof and located adjacent the side edges of the layers of the collar-like extension H. A line of stitches I6 is engaged through the flanges Hi and lil and through the edge portions of the layers of the collar-like extension I 2 which are disposed between the said flanges. The collarlike extension i2 is fashioned to project outwards, as clearly illustrated in Figs. 1 and 3. The purpose of this arrangement is to have the ex-- tension extend underneath the baby's chin and so catch any drip of food while the baby is being fed. The other edge of the tape I3 is held down by a line of stitches H.

The back sheet I4 is also formed with a neck cutout corresponding with the neck cutout II. A strip of binding material I8 is engaged upon the neck cutout of the sheet I. The outer edges of the sheet II are finished with ornamental serrated edge portions IS. A means is provided for releasably connecting the front sheet I0 with the back sheet It in a way so that the back sheet I is supported in position. This means includes a pair of loops 20 secured to the sides of the neck opening of the sheet M. The ends of the tape l3 pass through these loops 20 and thus the back sheet is supported. The tape I3 may be engaged around the back of the childs neck to secure the bib in position.

In Figs. 5 to 8 inclusive, a modified form of the invention has been disclosed which distinguishes from the prior form in the construction and back sheets together.

of the means for releasably connecting the front In accordance with this invention the back sheet M has the two sections of its top edge adapted to be bent frontwards along the line AB, schematically illustrated in Fig. 6. At this bent area each top section of the back sheet is formed with a buttonhole opening 22. The .ends of the tape I3 engage through these buttonhole openings 22 for supporting the back sheet. Snap fasteners 23 are mounted upon the adjacent faces of the forward bent top edge sections and the material beneath these sections and are cooperative through buttonholeopenings 24 formed in the material of the front sheet It. In other respects this form of the invention is similar to the previous form and like parts may be identified by corresponding reference numerals.

In Fig. 5 the means for releasably connecting the front and back sheets I0 and I4 respectively together has been illustrated in its operative position. To disconnect the sheets it is first necessary that the front sections of the top portions of the back sheet be pulled forwards to open up the snap fasteners 23. Then the front and back sheets may be removed relative to each other to disengage the tape ends l3 from the openings 22. The parts may be reassembled by following the disengaging steps in reverse order.

It is to be understood that this rib may be of any desired material such as toweling, knit cloth, absorbent paper, etc., also that it may be made of any desired shape and ornamentation.

While I have illustrated and described the preferred embodiments of my invention, it is to be. understood that I do not limit myself to the precise constructions herein disclosed and the right is reserved to all changes and modifications coming within the scope of the invention as defined in the appended claims.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by United,

States Letters Patent is:
