Application filed August 26, 1919. vSerial No. 820,011. i v

combined therewith whereby it can be readily attached, when in an adjusted position to I a belt or under garment worn by the. user.

A further object is to provide a napkin comprised principally of absorbent textile fabric, soft, comfortableand self-conforming in use, and which is easily amenable to common laundry processes whereby it may.

be cleansed and rendered antiseptic for further use.

Another object is to 'providesuch articles in relatively inexpensive forms, immediately available for use and which present no bulky or objectionable appearance.

These objects are attained by the novel construction andcombination of parts hereinafter described and shown in the accompan ing drawings, forming a material part of t is; disclosure, and in which Figure I is a plan view of a napkin made in accordance with the invention, unfolded, extended and partially broken in order to show the interior.

Fig. 2 is a transverse sectional view taken on line 22 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 3 is a similar plan view but showing the parts in a folded position ready for application, and, j

Fig. 4 is a transverse sectional vlew taken I on line 4-4 of Fig. 3.

Referring to the drawings in detail, the

' numeral 10 generally designates a rectangular sheet of relatively thick, loosely woven or knitted textile foraminous fabric, having high absorbent properties, such for instance as domett flannel, cheese cloth, turkish toweling,.etc., adapted to hold fluids in suspension.

A relatively firm integral border or fi n-' ished edge 11 extends along the four sidesof the napkin, which, as indicated, is unbroken by incisions.

A strap- 12 comprised of .a folded strip of firmly woven cotton fabric, is sewn along its marginal edges 13 and interposed in its length is a pocket 14 open atone edge and into which the. sheet 10 is entered and'sev cured by a row of stitches 15 in such man-' ner that the napkin can be folded along the folding lines 16, 16", and 16 forming portlons 10, 10", 10 and 10 adapted to enter and be normally retained within the pocket.

when in use. 1 I

The ends of the pocket are closed by rows of stitches 17 while its location divides the strap into portions of unequal length, 12 and 18 representin the rear and front respectively, the on s beingv fashioned, into tabs 19 and 20 reinforced by folding and adapted to be secured by pins, buttons or other fastening means to a belt worn for that purpose or directly to the undergarments as may be preferred.

From the foregoing 1t will be seen that a neat appearing, "cheap and serviceable article has been described, capable of convenient adjustment so as to be wornwith comfort, and that the same may be easily washed and sterilized by1 ordinary domestic processes.

Having t IISdGSCIlbGd. the invention what is claimed asnew and sought to be secured by Letters Patent is A sanita washable napkin, comprising in combination, a strap made of textlle fabric in the form of a flat tube having obtuse angular, reinforced ends, a pocket in said strap open at one edge, said pocket being closer to one. end of said stra than the other, a square sheet of absor ent fabric secured along one of its marginal edges within and to the bottom of said pocket, said sheet being foldablc transversely into equal portions to entirely enter the ocket, and an integral, relatively firm bor er formed on the marginal edges of said absorbent sheet.

In testimony wlfereof I have signed my name to this specification.
