IRONING BOARD COVER Filed Aug. 26, 1940 2 s eets-$1166; 1

Patented Dec. 23, 1941 UNE'iEfi @FFECE 1 Glaiin.

This invention relates to a cover for an ironing board, the general object of the invention being to provide means whereby the cover is held snugly on the board with a pad of asbestos or the like on the large end of the cover forming a seat for an iron.

Another object of the invention is to provide means whereby the cover will snugly conform itself to the board without wrinkles.

Other and further objects and advantages will be understood by those skilled in this art.

In the accompanying drawings wherein I have illustrated an ironing board cover constructed in accordance with this invention and wherein like numerals designate corresponding parts.

Figure 1 is a perspective view showing the cover on the board.

Figure 2 is a view looking toward the under face of the board with the cover thereon.

Figure 3 is a section on the line 3-3 of Figure 1.

Figure 4 is a fragmentary view similar to Figure 3 but showing the tuck removed so that the cover can be used on a longer board than that shown in Figure 3.

Figure 5 is a fragmentary longitudinal sectional view through one side edge of the cover.

Figure 6 is a view showing a portion of the cover, a part of the pad and a part of the edging strip separated and in section.

Figure 7 is a sectional View taken on line 7-! of Figure 1.

In these views the board is shown at A and the cover at B. This cover is formed of any suitable material with its small end closed as at I and a tuckered hem 2 is formed at the longitudinal edges of the cover and contains an elastic strip 3. A folded strip 4 of elastic material is connected with the large end of the cover and forms a casing for receiving the large end of the board and this strip 4 is sewn at its inner edge to that part of the cover which covers the front or top of the board, to the parts which cover the edge of the board and to the portions of the cover which overlap the underside of the board. One or more pairs of tapes 5 are connected to the longitudinal edges of the cover and are adapted to be tied, after the cover has been placed on the board, to snugly hold the cover on the board,

the tapes, of course, being located at the under face of the board. A transverse tuck or fold I may be formed in the cover adjacent the large end thereof, so that the cover can be used with a short board as shown in Figures 1, 2 and 3 but if the cover is to be used with a long board this tuck or fold is removed as shown in Figure 4.

A pad 8 of asbestos or the like is fastened to the top of the cover adjacent the large end thereof by means of a binding strip 9 which surrounds the pad and has edge portions overlapping the pad and other portions engaging the cover with the parts sewn together as shown in Figures 1, 3, 4 and '7. Of course, this pad is to receive the iron and prevent the hot iron from burning the cover.

The cover can be formed of any suitable mate- I rial and at the closed end, edge portions of the cover are sewn together as at H], see Figure 2, and,.of course, the cover is shaped to fit the board.

Thus it will be seen that I have provided a cover which can be sold at small price and one which will snugly fit the board and it can be easily placed on the board or removed therefrom.

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 claim.

Having described the claimed as new is:

An ironing board cover comprising a sheet of non-elastic material shaped to fit an ironin board and having a pocket at its smaller end, a second pocket secured to the large end of the cover, said second pocket comprising a five-sided, rectangular box having the sixth side open to receive the large end of the ironing board, said ironing board material sheet being secured to the top, side and a substantial portion of the bottom edges of the open side of said rectangular pocket, said second pocket being formed of an elastic material to keep said cover taut, said elastic pocket extending over a very limited distance of the top surface of said board.
