SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 569,521, dated October 13, 1896.

Application filed October 18, 1894. Serial No. 526,297. (No model.)

To @ZZ whom it' may concern:

Be it known that I, FANNIE H. SCATGHARD, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Oneonta, New York, have invented certain Improvements in Sleeping-Sacks for Infants, of which the following is a speciiication.

The object of my invention is to so construct a sleeping-sack for infants and small children that while the head and arms are free the body and lower limbs of the child are well protected and cannot possibly be uncovered, however restless the child may be. This object- I attain in the following manner, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, in which- Figure l is a perspective view of my improved sleepingsack, showing the same open. Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the sack, showing the same closed; and Fig. 3 is a longitudinal sectional view of the sack.

A is the body of the sack, being made, preferably, of padded material and having a back a., front co, sides a2 a2, and end a3, forming a pocket B for the reception of the body and lower limbs of the infant, the pocket extending to the armpits. An extension or flap d projects upwardly from the back of the sack a, and has an opening d for the reception of the neck of the child, saidfiap a4 being slotted at e from the opening cl to the end, so as to form two side flaps o b, which, when folded, pass over the shoulders of the child and around the neck, as shown in Fig. 2, thus completely inclosing the body and lower limbs, but forming in addition to the neckopening d an opening t' on each side for the reception of the arms, so that while the head and arms are perfectly free all other portions of the body, as well as the lower limbs, are effectually protected and cannot be uncovered. The flaps h Z2 can be secured to the body A of the sack by tapes c or by any other suitable fastenings.

In some instances the lower portion of the sack may be separated into two parts for the reception of the lower limbs, as shown by dotted line at, Fig. 1, but I prefer to make the sack with a single pocket in order that the childs limbs may have free movement.

The sack may also be slitted in the breast portion, if desired, as also shown by dotted lines, so that a shirt or other undergarinent can be put on or removed from the child without the removal of the sack.

Having thus described my invention, I-

claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent- A sleeping-sack consisting of a bag closed at the bottom and having at the top a pro-
