CONVERTIBLE BAG R RECEPTACLE;

Application led October 10, 1922. Serial No. 523,586. 'i y This invention relates to a convertible bag or receptacle for use as a hand-bag or article carrier, and has for its object to provide a device of this characterwhich may be utilized as a pocketbook, hand-bag, shopping-bag or'music-roll, and which in allof its uses presents a compact and attractive appearance and provides the desired facilities for carrying packages, articles, money or the like.

Another object is to provide a device of y,

thisacharacter wherein the mechanical fea- .tures which give to the device its capacity for various uses enhances also the appear- `ance and ornamental qualities thereof.

Other objects and advantages of the invention reside in certain novel features of the construction,combination and arrangement of parts which will be hereinafter more fully described and particularly pointed out in the appended claim, reference.. being had to the accompanying drawings forming part of this speciication, and in which:

Figure 1 is a perspective view, showing the invention for use as a shopping bag;

Figure 2 is a`view in central vertical section with the parts of the ldevice arranged as shown in Figure 1;

Figure 8 is a perspective view, illustrating the device in use as a shoppin bag but of half size with respect to the s opping bag shown in Figures 1 and 2;

vFigure 4C is a perspective view, showing the device converted into a hand-bag;

Figure 5 is a similar view, showing-the device converted into a pocket-book; and i Figure 6 isla similar view, showing the device converted into a music roll.

Referring to the drawings and more especially to- Figures 1 and 2, it will be seen that the receptacle which constitutes the present invention is preferably made u of a rectangular piece of exible and foldiible material, such as leather or the' like, the4 piece of material being doubled on itself and stitched along its sides to provide a bag-like structure having a front wall 10 and a back wall 11, a closed bottom 12 and an open upper end 13. As above indicated the material which makes 'up the ba'g is both exible 'crosswise of the bag and foldable and may comprise leatherhavif desired.' A locking iap 15 is secured lto Athe inner side of the back wall 11 at the upper end thereof and extends around and .also a coin purse.

over 4the back wall, as shown in the drawings. The outer end of the locking flap 15'` carries a resilient socket 16 which is selectively cooperable with headed studs 17 and 18 carried at spaced intervals on the front wall 1() of the bag. The resilient-socket 16 of the lockingfla-p when engaged with either the stud 17 or the stud 18 provides .a snap fastener for holding the parts in desired positlon.

y The lower corners of the bag carry headed studs 20 and 21 adapted to be engaged with resilient sockets 22 and 23 respectively arranged at the upper corners of the bag.

fIhe front wall 10 of the bag carries a com purse 25 having a closure ap 26 adapted to be releasably locked to the body of the com purse by a -vsnap` fastenerl arrangement 27. L/

Loops 28 and 29-have their ends respec- .tively secured to the front wall 10 and back wall 11 of the and afford a .convenient In the extended orv unfolded position shown in Figures'l and 2 the receptaclev or bag provides a full size' shopping bag land Should it be desired to reduce the size of the. shopping bag it is only necessary to fold the bag along the line indicated at 30 in Figure 1 and snap'the studs 20 and 21'into the sockets 22 and 23, and then bring the locking Hap leover the adjacent portion of the front wall 10 and engage the resilient socket 16 of the locking flap with the headed stud. 18 which will .dispose the parts as shown in Figure 3 and thereby` make'. thetbagmore compact and at the same time afford quite a substantial space for articles or packages.

When it is desired toconvert the bag into a hand-bag such as shown 'in igure 4 the side portions of the bag are folded'over on the middle portion thereof; that/is, these side portions are folded overon lines of fold indicated at`31 and 32 in Figure 1. Itis understoo of course that when folded on the lines 3 and 32 the fold is lengthwise of the 'ba and after these folds vhave been made-.t e lpartially folded bag is-then. foldedI l onf'flthe line 30. This brings the folded parts ofthe bag to the osition shown in 'Figure 4 with the resilrent socket 16 of the flap 15 cooperatively,

disposed with respect to the studs 18 and when the socket 16 and stud 1'7 are engaged the parts are locked in position and a handbag of compact land attractive appearance is provided, the hand-bag having a compartment inbetween a portion o'f the front brings the stud 17 into cooperative relation with the resilient socket 16 of the locking fla lll Figure 6 the bag is shown in use as a music roll, the stud '16 of the flap 15 being engaged with the stud 17 in using the device in this manner.

I claim:

A convertible receptacle made up of a single piece of flexible and foldable material doubled upon itself and stitched along its sides to provide a bag-like structure having a front Wall and a back wall defining a compartment, handles connected to the front and back Wall and projecting outwardly lWall and having a fastening device selectively cooperable with the devices of the front Wall, the fastening device of the locking flap (zo-acting with certain of the fastening devices of the front Wall to maintain the bag folded as a pocket-book and also co-operating with another of these fastening devices tov maintain the bag folded as a small size handbag, said fastening device of the locking Hap being also' co-operable with a fastening device ofthe front Wall to maintain the bag rolled as a music rol l EARL WORTHINGTON SIMMS.
