COMBINED CARRYING BAG AND WORK BASKET Filed Feb. 25, 1935 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 Patented Sept. 17, 1935 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE COMBINED CARRYING BAG AND WORK BASKET Lewis W. Martin, Lancaster, Pa. Application February 23; 1935, Serial No. 7,920

3 Claims. (Cl. -49) This invention relates to a fold'ng work basket constituting a combined carrying bag and work basket.

' One important object of the invention is to provide a novel device of this kind of very light construction so as to be easily portable.

A second important object of the invention is to provide a novel device of this kind which can be expanded to hold a considerable quantity of work and folded to occupy a very small space when not in use.

A third important object of the invention is to construct the device in a novel manner so that even when folded it may contain work thus enabling the device and contained work to be trans ported from one place to another.

A fourth important object of the invention is to so construct such a device that, while containing work, it may be folded without danger of catching any of the work between parts of the frame of the invention.

With the above and other objects in view as will be hereinafter apparent, the invention consists in general of certain novel details of construction and combinations of parts hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings and specifically claimed.

In the accompanying drawings like characters of reference indicate like parts in the several views, and:

Figure 1 is a perspective view of the invention expanded and broken away in part.

Figure 2 is a perspective view to a smaller scale showing the invention folded of collapsed.

Figure 3 is a section through the invention expanded and in a vertical plane at right angles to the handles.

Figure 4 is a detail section on the line 4-4 of Figure 3.

Figure 5 is a detail section on the line 5-5 of Figure 1.

Figure 6 is a detail section showing the manner in which the handles are mounted on the frame bars.

In the embodiment of the invention as herein described and-shown there -is provided a pair of end frames each consisting of a pair of legs in pivotally connected at about their center points by means of a rivet I I which passes through suitable holes in said legs. On the rivet between the legs is a washer l2 which serves to slightly space the legs to permit free movement thereof. Also, a washer I3 is fitted on the imier end of the rivet so that this end can be riveted over on the washer l3 without injury to the wood of which the legs are preferably, but not necessarily, constructed. The end frames thus constructed constitute a pair of foldable X-frames. These frames are held in parallel spaced relation by means of four rods I4 preferably made 5 from dowelling material. Each of these rods extends from a point adjacent an end of a leg ill of one frame to the corresponding point of the corresponding leg II) of the other frame, the rods being held in position by screws l5 passing 10 through the legs and into the ends of the rods.

The inside edge of the upper end of each leg III is rabbetted to form a tapered notch I6 deepest at its lower endf'In the corresponding notches of the frames there is fitted the lower edge por- 15 tion of a pair of handle members I'I having corresponding hand holes I8. It is to be noted that the inclination of the notches is such that, when closed, the handles will lie flat against each other throughout so that when carrying the device pinching of the hand is prevented.

The frame thus formed is covered with suitable material such as fabric. To form such a cover there is provided a piece of fabric of a width to fit between the X-frames and one end of this strip 25 is hemmed to provide a tubular portion l9 receiving one of the upper rods M. This strip extends down to and below the rod M which lies below said upper rod, then over and around the other lower rod l4 then up to and around the 30 remaining upper rod M, where it is hemmed as at the other end of the strip to form a second tubular portion IS, the stitching for these tubular portions being shown at 20. This strip thus forms side portions 2| and a bottom portion 22. Secured to the sides 2| by stitching 23 is an upper bottom member 24 so that the bottoms 22 and 24 form an endless belt around the two lower rods l4 and serves to hold the sides 2| vertical when the basket is open, the belt also assisting in limiting the opening movement of the frames. The remaining sides 25 of the basket are formed by fabric strips which are stitched at their sides to the sides 2| and at their lower edges to the bottom 24. 45

Stitched at its rear top edge to one of the sides 2|, adjacent the top thereof, is a doubled fabric strip 26 provided with end stitching'and intermediate stitchings to form the strip into a series of pockets for small articles such as needles, pins and other articles found convenient in connection with needle work and the like.

A strap 27 connects opposite corners of the upper end or mouth of the basket so that it may 55 be hung on a persons arm.

"lherehasthusbeenprovidedasimpleand eflicient device of the kind described and for the purpose specifled.

It is obvious that minor changes may be made in the form-and construction of the invention without departing from the material spirit thereof. It is not, therefore, desired to conflne the invention to the exact form herein shown and described, but it is desired to include all such as properly come within the scope claimed.

Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new is:

1. In combination, a pair of frames each consisting of a pair of centrally pivoted legs, rods extending between said frames and connecting the upper and lower ends of the legs of one frame with corresponding points of the legs of the other frame, an endless belt of flexible material extending around the lower rods and constituting means to limit opening of said frames, and sides of flexible material extending up from the upper side of said belt, two of the sides being connected to the upper rods.

2. In combination, a pair of frames each consisting of a pair of centrally pivoted legs, rods extending between said frames and connecting the upper and lower ends of the legs of one frame with corresponding points of the legs of the other frame, an endless belt of flexible material extending around the lower rods and constituting meanstolimitopeningofsaidframmsiduot flexible material extending up from the upper side of said belt, two of the sides being connected to the upper rods, and flat handles connecting the upperendsofsaidframesanddisposedwithrespecttotheirsupporting legsatsuchangles theretoastolieflatagainsteachotherwhenthe frames are collapsed. 1,

3. In combination, a pair of frames each consisting of a pair of centrally pivoted legs. rods extending between said frames and connecting the upper and lower ends of the legs of one frame with corresponding points of the legs of the other 11 frame, an endless belt of flexible material extending around the lower rods and constituting means to limit opening of said frames, sides of flexible material extending up from the upper side of said belt, two of the sides being connected to g the upper rods, flat handles connecting the upper ends of said frames and disposed with respect to their supporting legs at such angles thereto as to lie flat against each other when the frames-are collapsed, and a strap loosely connecting the 3| opposite corners of the upper end of the basket.
