CUSHION BLANKET Filed Sept. 28, 1933 INVENTOR. ABRAHAM W ARONOW ATTORNEY.
Patented Apr. 21, 1936 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE CUSHION BLANKET Abraham W. Aronow, Philadelphia, Pa. Application September 28, 1933, Serial No. 691,288
2 Claims. (01. -334) This invention relates to cushions and blankets, spreads, or covers and has for its object the production of an article which in one of its phases will serve as a cushion and in another of its phases will serve simultaneously as a cushion and blanket, spread, or, cover.
Another object of this invention is to provide the novel article referred to hereinabove with means positioned so as to bind the ensemble as a unit when in the cushion phase.
Another object of this invention is to produce a combined cushion and blanket which will be simple in structure and comparatively easy to manufacture and assemble.
I attain the above objects by providing a blanket, spread or cover with a cushion and cushion attaching or receiving means so positioned at particular points upon the blanket that the attached cushion will in the open position of the blanket be positioned so as to adapt the ensemble for use as a combined cushion and blanket and which in the closed position will combine with the blanket portions to form a more comfortable cushion. I further attain the last of the above objects by providing the blanket with cooperating fastening means so positioned that they will cooperate in the closed position of the blanket to bind the ensemble into a unitary cushion element.
For the purpose of disclosing my invention so that those skilled in the art may understand the same, I have illustrated in the drawing which forms part hereof and shall now describe two of the specific forms which my novel structure may take.
In the said drawing:
Figure 1 is a perspective view of my novel cushion-blanket in its folded or cushion phase positioned upon a chair. A portion of the unit has been cut away for the purpose of clearness.
Figure 2 is a perspective view of my novel article in its open phase when it serves simultaneously as a blanket and as a cushion. Portions of the cushion retaining pocket, have been broken away for the purpose of more clearly illustrating its structure. The dot and dash lines indicate the lines along which the blanket must be folded in order that the ensemble may assume the shape and phase shown in Figure 1.
Figure 3 is a section of a fragment of my novel structure taken along the line 3-3 of Figure 1 but showing a modified way of attaching the pillow element to the blanket portion.
Referring more particularly to the drawing wherein similar reference letters and reference numerals denote similar parts, reference numeral I denotes my cushion-blanket as a unit composed ofa cushion element 2, a blanket element 3, a cushion-retaining pocket 4, and ensemble fastening means 5. 5
The blanket element 3 consists of a blanket of the type now in general use. The pocket 4 is formed by the portion BCRQ of the blanket and by the piece of cloth 6 which is attached thereto along its edges 1, 8 and 9 by the lines of stitching 10 Ill. The lips l|-|l of ,the pocket 4 have attached thereto cooperating snap fastener elements l2 and I3. The cushion 2 is of the type now in general use and of a size which will fit into the pocket 4. The ensemble fastening means 5 consists of the cooperating snap-fastener elements l4 and I5 positioned upon the blanket portions ABQP, CDER and STWX as shown.
Although the manner of making, assembling and using my novel article is believed to be obvious from the foregoing description, yet to obviate any possibility of a misunderstanding the follow-v ing detailed description is here given.
We start with a blanket element 3 of the type now in general use. We attach thereto the snap fastener elements l3, l4 and I5 and form thereon the pocket 4 by attaching the piece of cloth 6 along the edges 1, 8 and 9 as shown. The cloth 6 is preferably of the same color and material as the blanket and, before its attachment to the blanket element 3, had had fastened thereon the snap fastener elements l2. We now insert the cushion element 2 into the pocket 4 and join together the snap-fastener elements I! and I3 thereby locking the cushion 2 in place. We now fold the right rectangular portion CDIJ of the blanket 3 rearwardly around the line CJ as an axis thereby causing it to underlie the central portion BCJK and then fold the left rectangular 4O portion ABLK about the line BK as an axis so that this portion underlies the portion CDIJ. This results in the ensemble having the general outline of-the rectangular block BCJK. We now fold the block YZKJ rearwardly about the line YZ as an axis so that it immediately underlies the block WXYZ and then the block WXYZ (YZKJ) about the line WX as an axis until it immediately underlies the block portion STWX and then the block STXW (WXYZ, YZKJ) about the line ST as an axis until it immediately underlies the block QRTS and then the block QRTS (S'I'XW, WXYZ, YZKJ) about the line QR as an axis until it immediately underlies the pocket block BCRQ. The cooperating snap fastener elements l4 and I5 are so positioned that in this position they will overlie each other. The ensemble is now locked together as a unit by fastening the snap elements I4 and I5 together. If the portion ABKL takes the position wherein a corner l6 lies between the cooperating fastening elements l4-l5 it is only necessary to fold the said corner 16 of the portion ABQP to the position shown by the dotted lines in Figure 1 thereby removing the same as an obstruction to the proper functioning of the said snap fastener elements.
My novel cushion-blanket is capable of being used in many ways, among which are the following:
As a cushion in an automobile and a ground spread or blanket.
As a combined cushion and seat cover (with the blanket in the open phase) when driving.
As a combined cushion and blanket at football games or when sitting in the open in cool weather.
The above disclosure is to be understood as being for the purpose of illustration only and not for the purpose of limitation since many changes maybe made in the disclosure herein shown without departing from the spirit of my invention which consists in providing a blanket, spread, or cover withcushion attaching means so positioned that the ensemble will in the open position of the blanket serve as a combined spread, blanket, cover and cushion and in the closed or folded position of the blanket as a cushion. The changes may include the substitution of cooperating snap fasteners for the lines of stitching III as the means for attaching either the cushion 2 or the pocket forming element 6 to the blanket portion BCRQ. Where snap fasteners are used the pocket forming element 6 may be dispensed with entirely if desired. In such a case one of the cooperating elements of the snap fastener would be attached directly to the pillow and if desired may be limited to one edge or portion of the pillow. Such a structure is shown in Figure 2 which differs from the disclosure in Figures 1 and 3 in the fact that the pocket forming element 6 has been eliminated and a modified pillow 2' which carries the snap fastener elements I! along its front edge l9 has.
been substituted for the pillow 2. The snap fastener elements l8 which cooperate with the snap fastener elements I! are carried by the blanket portion BCRQ. The advantage of retaining the pocket forming element 6 is that it may be removed for washing and a clean element substituted therefor. In the light of my disclosure other changes in addition to the above will suggest a themselves to those skilled in the art and it is for this reason that it is my desire that the claims which are hereunto appended for the purpose of defining my invention should be limited only by the prior art.
Definition: The term blanket as used in the claims and specification is to be understood as indicating and describing a blanket, spread or cover.
Having described my invention what I claim as new and useful is:
1. A cushion-blanket adapted to assume a combined blanket and cushion and cushion position respectively consisting of a blanket member; a cushion member detachably attached to said blanket member centrally thereof and near the upper edge thereof; and a pair of cooperating attaching means each consisting of two separable cooperating elements carried by said blanket for binding said blanket and cushion members into a unitary cushion when the said blanket is in its cushion position, one of said cooperating elements of each said attaching means being positioned upon the said blanket at a point along the upper edge thereof near one of the side edges of said cushion and the other of said cooperating elements of each of said attaching means being positioned upon said blanket at a point near the upper corner of an imaginary block approximately the size of said cushion situated centrally of said blanket at a distance of approximately a cushion width from the lower edge of said cushion.
2. A cushion-blanket adapted to assume a combined blanket and cushion and cushion position respectively consisting of a blanket member; a pocket formed on said blanket centrally thereof and near the upper edge thereof; a cushion positioned in said pocket; cooperating snap fastener elements carried by the lips of said pocket for closing said pocket; and a pair of snap fasteners each consisting of two separable cooperating elements carried by said blanket for binding said blanket and cushion members into a unitary cushion when the said blanket is in its cushion position, one of said cooperating elements of each said snap fasteners being positioned upon the said blanket at a point along the upper edge thereof nearone of the side edges of said cushion and the other of said cooperating elements of each of said snap fasteners being positioned upon said blanket at a point near the upper corner of an imaginary block approximately the size of said cushion situated centrally of said blanket at a distance of approximately a cushion width from the lower edge of said cushion.
