May 26, 1964 M. MAGYAR CARRYING BAG FOR ARTISTS ACCESSORIES Filed May 21, 1963 R m m M mwfm MM H m United States Patent 3,134,416 CARRYING BAG FOR ARTISTS ACCESSORIES Martha Magyar, 17 Anderson Block, Minot, N. Dak. Filed May 21, 1963, Ser. No. 282,020 1 Claim. (Cl. 150-52) This invention relates to a carrying bag and more particularly to a flexible bag capable of carrying such items as paint brushes, tubes of paint, small bottles and so forth which are used by artists.
It is an important object of the invention to provide a flexible compartmented bag which can hold accessories of the class described in condition for rapid identification and for easy removal and replacement.
Another object of the invention is to provide an artists accessory bag which is flexible and can be opened to expose all of the contents through transparent portions which define individual pockets and which can be rolled into a compact unit capable of standing upon a supporting surface.
A further object of the invention is to provide a tying and carrying means in association with the flat open bag which will be conveniently positioned for use when the bag is rolled into its compact form.
These and other objects and advantages of this invention will more fully appear from the following description, made in connection with the accompanying drawing, wherein like reference characters refer to the same or similar parts throughout the several views and in which:
FIGURE 1 is an elevational view of the rear side of the carrying bag in open position;
FIGURE 2 is a somewhat enlarged elevation of the front side of the carrying bag, the accessories being indicated in dotted configuration;
FIGURE 3 is an elevational view of the carrying bag in rolled and tied position with the accessories contained within the bag; and
FIGURE 4 is a further enlarged horizontal section taken on the line 44 of FIGURE 2 and looking in the direction of the arrows.
With continued reference to the drawing, FIGURE 1 shows the carrying bag in open position from the rear side. The bag comprises an elongated flexible support sheet which has an upper edge 11 and a lower edge 12 as shown. In the form illustrated, the flexible support sheet is rectangular with side edges 13 and 14 defining the length of the unrolled carrying bag. The support sheet 10 may be made from cloth such as canvas or any other durable and strong material and may have the peripheral edge 14 hemmed for additional strength.
A pair of handle means- 15 is provided for carrying the bag. A first upwardly looped strap handle 16 having flared depending legs 17 and 18 is secured as by sewing to the support sheet 10 in the manner illustrated. Similarly, a second upwardly looped strap handle 19 is secured to the support sheet at a horizontally spaced interval from the first handle and has downwardly depending legs 20 and 21 which are flared and attached to the surface of the support sheet.
At the left side of the support sheet as viewed in FIGURE 1, a pair of tie members 22 and 23 are secured to the hemmed edge 13 for about half the distance from the lower edge 12 to the upper edge 11 of the supporting sheet 10.
In a similar manner a pair of tie members 24 and 25 3,134,416 Patented May 26, 1964 "ice are secured to the hemmed edge 14 of the support sheet 10, the tie members being utilized in a manner to be subsequently described.
Referring now to FIGURE 2, the support sheet 10 has another sheet secured thereto for the purpose of holding various articles and accessories. The sheet is designated as 26 and comprises a transparent and flexible sheet such as clear plastic material and secured along its bottom edge 27 to the bottom edge 12 of the support sheet 10. The flexible transparent sheet 26 is also secured at horizontally spaced intervals 28 to the support sheet 10 and thus defines vertical pockets 29 of suitable Width to retain artists articles such as paint tubes 30 and brushes 31. Additional patches of transparent material 32 may be secured to the support sheet 10 for holding such articles as turpentine bottle 33 and wiping cloth 34. It has been found convenient to utilize a flexible transparent sheet of lesser width than the support sheet. Thus, the transparent sheet 26 has an upper edge 35 which terminates below the edge 11 of sheet 10.
When it is desired to use the bag for carrying artists supplies it is rolled in such a manner that the looped handles 16 and 19 fall into registry as shown in FIG- URE 3. With the bag in rolled condition, two opposed tie strings such as 24 and 22 may be wrapped around the roll horizontally and tied in a bow as shown. Similarly the remaining opposed tie strings 25 and 23 may be wrapped vertically around the roll and brought together in a bow knot as shown. The carrying bag thus forms a rolled base and can be supported upon a table top or other fiat surface (not shown) and the handles 19 and 16 are in registry so that they may be grasped and carried by one hand.
It will, of course, be understood that various changes may be made in the form, details, arrangements, and proportions of the parts without departing from the scope of this invention as set forth in the appended claim.
What is claimed is:
A carrying bag for artists accessories which comprises:
(a) an elongated flexible support sheet having an upper and a lower edge,
(b) an elongated flexible transparent sheet lying against said support sheet and having an upper and a lower edge,
(0) said transparent sheet being of lesser Width than the support sheet and secured at horizontally spaced intervals to said support sheet and defining vertical pockets for holding artist's accessories for visible identification,
(d) a pair of upwardly looped strap handles secured at spaced positions to said support sheet, said handles each including a strap having downwardly flaring leg portions stitched throughout their length to one side of said support sheet between the lower and upper edges thereof to form relatively long loops of a size approximating the distance between the upper and lower edges of said support sheet, and
(e) tie means attached to said support sheet and securable at the external surface of said support sheet, whereby said bag and said accessories may be rolled and tied into a compact unit with said looped straps being in registry for carrying and being capable of standing alone when placed upon a supporting surface.
