LEILA C -SCHEER rronwsv United States Patent 3,579,675 CHILDS SLEEPING BAG Leila C. Scheer, 1272 Balboa Ave., Burlingame, Calif. 94010 Filed Feb. 24, 1970, Ser. No. 14,260 Int. Cl. A47g 9/00 U.S. Cl. 5-343 6 Claims ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE A childs sleeping bag having a lower panel projecting endwise beyond the top edge of an upper panel at the head end of the bag, with an ornamental pillow attractive to a child secured to the projecting part, and a flap secured at an edge to the lower panel so that the flap may be moved into a position to overlie and protect the pillow from being soiled when a child occupies the bag, the flap being foldable into a compartment between the panels to thus expose the pillow.
SUMMARY As the cardinal object of this invention, it is proposed to provide a childs sleeping bag having an ornamental pillow attractive to a child secured to a projecting head end of the lower panel of the bag, and a flexible flap secured to this panel so that it may be moved into one position so as to cover at least a substantial part of the pillow, thus protecting the latter from being soiled when a child occupies the bag. Moreover, the flap may be folded into the interior compartment of the bag, thus exposing the pillow to view.
Another object of the invention is to provide a novel arrangement of handles at the foot end of the bag, which will permit the bag to be rolled upon itself, starting with the head end and progressing to the foot end thereof, which will present the handles on opposite sides of the roll, together with tying straps that may be drawn over the roll and tied together to thus hold the bag from unrolling.
Other objects and advantages will appear as the specification proceeds, and the novel features of the invention will be particularly pointed out in the appended claims.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWING For a better understanding of the invention, reference should be made to the accompanying drawing, forming part of this specification, in which:
FIG. 1 is a top plan view of the childs sleeping bag, with a portion of the upper panel broken away;
FIG. 2 is a side elevational view thereof; and
FIG. 3 is an elevational view showing the bag in rolled position and tied against unrolling.
DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT Referring now to the drawing in detail, I have shown a childs sleeping bag having lower and upper panels A and B, respectively, defining a compartment =C therebetween dimensioned for accommodating a child. It will be noted that the lower panel projects endwise at the head end D of the bag beyond the top edge 10 of the upper panel.
As an important structural feature, an ornamental pillow E attractive to a child is secured to the upper surface of the projecting part 11 of the lower panel A. The pillow E is designed to give the elfect that a dog, 'bear, doll, etc., is lying in the bag. Any suitable means may be provided for securing the pillow to the lower panel, such as stitching 12, hooks and eyes, snap fasteners, buttons, nylon matt self-adhering tape, etc., and the pillow 3,579,675 Patented May 25, 1971 may be easily removed, or it may be stationary. This pillow may be made of soft material, or fur, and could be attached only by the neck as shown in FIG. 1.
It will be understood that in order to complete the effect of a full length animal or doll, the decoration could continue on the lining or on and over the top panel B. Inasmuch as this part may be readily appreciated, no illustration thereof is considered necessary.
The bag is open across the top 10 and down one side 13 in the nature of a slit (see FIG. 2). This will permit access to the interior .of the bag, and preferably no metal zipper is used. Rather nylon matt self-adhering tape strips 14 may be used for closing the top part of the slit 13 (see FIGS. 1 and 2). As disclosed by dot-dash lines in FIG. 1, an upper corner portion 15 of the upper panel B may be turned back to permit the child to enter the compartment C with ease. The head of the child will be uncovered. The panels A and B are made from any suitable material, and may be single or double thickness, and may be lined.
A flap F has an edge section 16 secured by stitching 17, or other suitable fastening mean, to the lower panel A, the flap being flexible and movable into a position to overlie and protect at least a substantial part of the pillow E, as shown by dot-dash lines in FIGS. 1 and 2, thus preventing the pillow from becoming soiled when the child occupies the bag.
As shown in FIGS. 1 and 2, the flap F may be folded into the compartment C so as to thus expose the pillow E by uncovering the latter.
The flap F is dimensioned so as to substantially cover and conceal the entire pillow E when the flap overlies the pillow, and in fact the entire pillow may be concealed in the flap.
It will be apparent that the flap F is secured to the lower panel A so that substantially the entire flap may be folded into the compartment C so as to be concealed therein. The stitching 17 secures the edge section 16 of the flap -F to the lower panel approximately in registration with the top edge 10 of the upper panel B, and this will permit substantially the entire flap to be moved into the interior of the bag.
With particular reference to FIGS. 1 and 3, it will be seen that a reinforcing strip 18 of flexible material is attached by stitching 19 to the underneath surface of the lower panel A toward the foot end G of the bag, or other means may be used for securing the strip 18 to the panel A. Moreover, a pair of flexible hand-grasping loop-shaped handles 20 are disposed at the opposite transverse ends 21 of the strip 18, these handles having their ends anchored to the strip. The handles 20 are located so as to be presented on opposite sides of the roll provided when the bag is rolled upon itself, as shown in FIG. 3, starting at the head end D and progressing to the foot end G.
Also, a pair of tying straps 22 are disposed at the opposite transverse ends 21 of the reinforcing strip 18, each strap having an end secured to this strip, and the straps being flexible and having sufiicient lengths for being drawn over the roll and tied together at 23 (see FIG. 3), thus holding the bag from unrolling.
The pillow E could be made from thermal material, or the ornamental features thereof could be printed on the lining of the bag. Moreover, the pillow may be applied or quilted on the bag, or tacked on as a pillow or pillow case.
Of course, the sleeping bag may be made in various sizes and the bag could be opened flat like a conventional sleeping bag.
