R. L. MOEHLING SHOE COVER Filed June 29, 1934 be wrapped, which is shaped Patented Oct. 15, 1935 UNITED srrEs PATENT OFFICE SHOE COVER Ruth L. Moehling, Brooklyn, N. Y. Application June 29, 1934, Serial No. '733,001
1 Claim.
The purpose of this invention is to provide a shoe covering that is serviceable, washable, neat and attractive, and in which shoes may be wrapped separately when they are packed in a suit case, bag or trunk or dresser drawer. The shoe cover preserves the shoes and prevents them soiling 'other objects, such as gowns and other contents in a traveling bag and altho they may be used by anyone, they are preferably for ladies' shoes.
The invention is a shoe cover made of any woven fabric shaped to confirm to the curvature of a shoe having an enclosed end adapted to cover also having flaps at the back or open end, adapted to be wrapped around the heel of the shoe and tied.
The object of the invention is to provide a. shoe cover for preserving shoes and preventing them getting marked or marking objects with which they come in contact, which may be cleaned or laundered.
Another object is to provide a covering for shoes, or the like, in which the shoes may readily to conform to the shape of the shoe.
Another object is to provide a covering for shoes, or the like, which may be used and re-used.
Another object is to provide a covering for shoes, or the like, which may readily be tied around each shoe.
A further object of the invention is to provide an individual wrapper for shoes which is dainty and attractive and which is adapted to be used as a gift.`
And a still further object is to provide a neat and attractive shoe covering which is also simple, serviceable and inexpensive.
With these ends in view the invention embodies a shoe cover formed of a. fiat piece of material with the edges curved and pointed to form a shapely cover when wrapped and tied around the shoe, the open edges are bound with silk tape or ribbon, with the ends extending so that they may readily be tied.
Other features and advantages of the invention will appear from the following description taken in connection with the drawing, wherein:
Figure 1 is a view showing a shoe wrapped in the device.
Figure 2 is a Figu'e 1.
Figure 3 is a View showing the material of which the cover is made, in the fiat position.
Figure 4 is a view showing the upper edges of the forward part of the cover stitched together.
plan View of the shoe shown in Figure 5 is a view showing the seam shown in Figure 4 in the center with the edges stitched to form the toe.
Figure 6 is a View showing the complete device without a shoe inserted therein. 5 In the drawing the device is shown as it may be made wherein numeral I indicates the flat piece of material which may be cut as shown in Figura 3, with the back curved forming a line 2, the sides curved from the ends of the line 2 to the 10 points 3 forming concave edges 4 and 5, and from the points 3 the sides are similarly curved to the points 6 and I, forming edges 8 and 9, and from the points 6 and 1, the edge of the material extends backward and inward to the points li) and H, forming edges |2 and I3, and from these points it extends forward to the point I 4, forming edges !5 and IS. The edge 2 is bound by a ribbon l'l forming a binding, and the ends |8 and IS of the ribbon extend beyond the ends of the sides providing means for holding the device on a shoe as, with a shoe inserted in the cover and the open ends wrapped around the shoe, these ends may be tied to form a bow 20, preferably at the side of the shoe. The edges 4 and 5 are also covered with strips of ribbon 2l and 22, forming a binding therefor, as shown.
In making the cover the material l is folded on a center line so that the edges 8 and 9 will correspond, and these edges are stitched together from the points 3 to the points 6 and 1, as shown in Figure 4, with the edges 4 and 5 free, so that the device may be open to the points 3. The device is then folded, as shown in Figure 5, so that the edge |2 will correspond with the edge !5, and the edge !3 with the edge I 6, and these edgesmay be stitched together by stitches as indicated by the numeral 23. With the edges B and 9 stitched together, and also with the edges |2 and !5, and !3 and 16 stitched, the device may then be turned 4 so that it Will appear as shown in Figure 6, with the sides 4 and 5, and the rear end open. The manner in which the parts 6, 'I and M are formed provides fullness to accommodate the fullness of the shoe, and it will be understood that by slight variations in the size and shape of the device, it may be made to fit snugly around shoes of any type or design, however, one device may be made to accommodate a large range of shoes of difierent shapes and sizes, as an exact fit is not desired.
It will be understood that other changes may be made in the Construction without departng from the spirit of the invention. One of which changes may be in the use of other means for tying the open ends thereof, and still another may be in slight changes in the shapes of the edges and also in the means for securing the edges together.
The method of making this cover may be readily understood from the foregoing description. In use the cover may be cut from silk or very fine or dainty material, and the material may be of any color and may also be plain or colored with stripes, designs, or figures, as may be desired. With the material cut and stitched in this manner, a very unique device is provided for covering shoes when placing shoes in trunks, hand bags, dresser drawers, or similar devices, or for protecting shoes from soiling, or for any purpose. The shoe may readily be inserted in the opening formed at the ends of the line 2, and the ends may be folded one over bons wrapped around the shoe and tied, as shown in Figure l. It is preferred to use a cover for each shoe, as the shoe is protected from rubbing against another shoe and also, as individual shoes, may be more readily packed. This device may be made for shoes of any size and, while it is primarily for ladies' shoes, it may also be used the other, with the ribt for misses', children's and men's. It will also be appreciated that the ribbon for tying the ends together may be ormed or attached to the device in any manner, and these ribbons may also be omitted and other means may be provided for securing the ends together.
Having thus fully described the invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is:
As a new article of manuacture, a shoe cover comprising an envelope-like container formed of a flat piece of material folded over, with the edges stitched together and with one end closed and the other open, in which the closed end is formed eonverging to correspond with the toe of a shoe, and the open end is provided with fiaps having ribbons extending therefrom, by which the parts thereof may be folded over the heel of a shoe, wrapped around the shoe, and the edges tied together by the ribbon, cover with a shoe on the inside, said piece of material from which the device is formed being soft and fiexible.
