DISPOSABLE BIB 'AND APRON Filed March 28, 1938 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 Il Il Patented Nov. 11, 1941 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE DISPOSABLE BIB AND APRON Grace A. Kuehne, Evanston, Ill.

Application March 28, 1938, Serial No. 198,401

3 Claims.

This invention pertains to improvements in bibs, aprons, and the like, and seeks as its principal object to provide articles of the aforementioned class which may either be disposed of in their entirety, after use, or in which at least the face portions of the bib or apron may be torn oi and disposed of as they become soiled.

It is often the experience of a user of such articles that a conventional childrens bib or conventional apron or the like may become soiled only in part, requiring a complete change, or that it may be desirable to use a portion of the bib or apron in the nature of a drying means as for instance as a face or hand towel. In the conventional fabric bibs or aprons such use generally ruins the appearance and cleanliness of the article.

This invention particularly seeks to overcome the aforementioned diiliculties by providing an article of the above described general `class which may be disposed of in its entirety or in which a face portion consisting of a plurality of sheets of absorbent paper or the like which may be torn off from the back portion one by one for the various uses to which such sheets may be put, thereby exposing a clean sheet.

In its cheapest form the back may be made of relatively durable but absorbent paper formed substantially as shown on the drawings, and entirely disposed of after use. In a more durable form it may consist of a relatively durable paper back into which a plurality of sheets of absorbent paper or the like may be securely placed or glued into position by turning the edges shown on the drawings back over the more absorbent material. In the case of the aforementloned forms of the invention the entire bib or the like may be eventually disposed of.

In a still more durable form a back portion of relatively durable material, such as oiled silk or other fabric, is provided, which may be buttoned, snapped, or laced around an insertable pad consisting of a plurality of absorbent sheets overlaid on one another substantially in the manner shown on the drawings and hereinafter more fully described.

A further object of this invention is to provide a device of the class described which not only possesses the novelty and utility set forth above, but also is economical to manufacture.

It is Within my contemplation that this invention may also be used for other types of protective garments such as barbers neck cloths made from paper, wood pulp` corn by-products. cellulose, or any other flexible material and that the invention, as shown and described. may be marie in single units consisting of a blank of absorbent paper formed substantially as shown. or of a back and attached absorbent face portion or of a back and multiple perforated and detachable sheets attached to said back substantially as herein set forth, providing a structure of wide utility, applicable for use in many ways.

Other and further objects of the invention will be apparent from the drawings and from the detailed description which follows.

On the drawings:

Fig, 1 is a plan view of one form of the invention, this being in the shape of a more or less -conventionally formed bib with lacing serving as a means for fastening the disposable tissues, in the back 'portion In this gure several of the sheets of the pad, shown in Fig. 2, are shown as turned back as they are when it is desired to dispose of one or more of the top layers of absorbent paper or the like.

Fig.\2 is a plan view of a pad consisting of a plurality of absorbent and disposable sheets of paper or the like such as are used in the structure shown in Fig. 1, as the said pad appears when not enclosed by the back portion.

Fig. 3 is a plan view of one form for a relatively durable back portion for the structure shown as complete and ready for use in Fig. l, as it appears when the edges thereof are folded open to receive a pad substantially of the form shown in Fig. 2.

Fig. 4 is a fragmentary plan View of the uppermost portion of the portions shown in Figs. 1 and 3, at the left of this figure showing the folded portions enclosing but not laced to a fragmentary portion of the pad shown in Fig. 2, and at the right showing how the edge portions and the neck encircling portion fold to enclose the pad shown in Fig. 2.

Fig. 5 is a modified form of the invention otherwise shown on the drawings, shown as it appears when made large enough for and in the shape of an apron, showing at the upper left hand portion of this figure. how the edge portions of the more durable part of the apron or the like may be folded to enclose and hold the disposable portions. and at the right showing how the lateral edges appear when snaps are used as a fastening means and when opened, such as is necessary to insert another pad of disposable sheets nf absorbent paper o the like.

Fig. 6 is a plan view of a still further modied form of the invention in which. instead of being held in by snaps. lacings or the like. the disposable portion of the apron is sewed or glued into a. back portion consisting of relativey durable material,

Ps shown on the drawings:

There is illustrated in Fig. l a form of this invention which is particularly adapted for use as a bib or the like. The numeral I is used to illustrate a relatively durable back portion, which may be made of heavy paper, oil cloth, oiled silk, or, in fact, of any material of greater durability than the absorbent face portions of the device hereinafter more fully described.

As further shown in Fig. 1, in this form the back portion is formed into that shape which is conventionally used for bibs for children being cut out substantially as shown at Ia to form a neck encircling portion and cut out substantially as shown at Ib to form a portion which will conform to the arms of the used.' A pair of neck encircling ribbons or strings Ic are provided, substantially as shown, providing a means whereby the bib may be tied laround the neck of the user.

As shown in the drawings, some of the lateral edges Id of the back portion are adapted to be folded back over the body of the face pad, and in that particular form shown in Figs. l, 3 and 4, these back turned lateral edges Id are provided with a plurality of holes Ie adapted to fall into registry with other holes If in the main back portion and through which lacing 2 may be passed to retain the pad shown in Fig. 2 in proper position on the back portion.

Illustrated in Fig. 2 is a typical pad for in-A sertion in the back portion I consisting of a. plurality of sheets 3 placed one above the other and preferably glued at their lateral edges or stapled together for easy insertion in the back portion I. As shown in the drawings each of the sheets 3 is scored along its edges in. such a manner that one or more of said sheets may be removed by being pulled, the scoring 3a serving to aid in permitting one or more of the sheets to be torn along the edges 3c where the said sheets are held in the back portion. A plurality of holes 3b are provided in the sheets 3 and adapted to fall into registry with the holes Ie and If in the back portion.

As hereinbefore mentioned, some of the lateral edges of the back portion I are adapted to be folded back over the pad edge portions 3c to form a retaining means for the pad of sheets 3 and, when the back portion I is laid completely open, as shown in Fig. 3, the neck encircling ribbons or the like I c are relatively wide and unfolded, substantially as shown.

Shown in Fig. is a modication of the general form of the invention shown in Figs. l, 3 and 4, this of particular use as an apron. Basically the difference between the disclosure of Figs. 1 to 4 inclusive and that form shown in Fig. 5 is largely one of form or shape only.

In this modified form the invention is, of course, made larger than is the bib but the general usage and application of the basic construction shown in this invention are substantially the same. In this modied form a back portion 4 is provided having folding side edges la adapted to fold over the edges of a properly shaped pad of sheets of absorbent paper 5 or the like and as an alternative to the lacing shown in Fig. 1. I use in this form a plurality of conventional dress snaps as a fastening means for the pad 5. A pad 5 consisting of a plurality of sheets 5b of absorbent paper are provided having a series of holes 5a, therethrough which falls into registry with the snaps, the head portion of the snaps 4b extending through the holes 5a and the base portions 4c of thesnaps contacting the said head portions 4b and substantially retaining the plurality of sheets 5 in proper position when edge portion 4a is folded and snapped in place as shown.

Shown in Fig. 6 is a still further modication of my invention in which a back 6, made of relatively durable material, as for instance, heavy paper, is provided, and in which a pad consisting of a single or plurality of sheets 1a may be stitched as at 6b or otherwise fastened, as for instance, by glue, under back turned edges 6a of back 8 to edges of the said sheets 1.

In Figs. 5 and 6 a fanciful edge or ruflles B are shown merely to illustrate the artistic possibilities of my invention. Shown in dotted lines in Figs'. 5 and 6 is a pocket A which may be formed on the rearwardmost face of the back portion 4, it being obvious that the structure shown in Figs. 5 and 6, or in fact, that structure shown in Figs. l, 3 and 4, may be reversed, should it be desirable so to do.

While the invention herein disclosed has beenl illustrated and .described in considerable detail tending to show in their commercial forms some of the various modifications to which this invention may be subject, it is within my contemplation that various changes may be made in the embodiment of the invention herein specifically described without departing from or sacriflcing any of the advantages of the invention or any features thereof, and nothing herein shall be construed as limitations upon the invention, its concept or structural embodiment as to the whole or any part thereof except as defined in the appended claims.

I claim:

l. In a bib, apron or other shielding member, the combination of a relatively durable back portion having a plurality of apertures along the edges thereof, marginal extensions on said back portion having apertures therein, a pad consisting of a plurality of sheets of paper fastened to said back portion, said pad having apertures adjacent the edges thereof in registry with the apertures in said back portion, said marginal extensions being turned back over the outer face of said pad so that the apertures in said marginal portions register with the apertures in said back portion and said pad, means cooperating with the apertures in said back portion, marginal extensions and pad to retain said pad on back portion, and scoring on said sheets adjacent the edges thereof to permit removal of individual sheets from said pad.

2. In a bib, apron or other shielding member, the combination of a back portion, marginal extensions on said back portion, a pad consisting of a plurality of sheets of paper fastened to said back portion, said marginal extensions being turned back over the face of said pad, apertures adjacent the edges of said pad, means adjacent the edges of said back portion and on said marginal extensions cooperating with said apertures to hold said pad on said back portion, and scoring adjacent .the edges of said sheets providing a means whereby individual sheets may be removed from the pad.

3. In -an article of the class described, the combination of a back portion made of relatively durable material, a face portion comprising a pad of relatively nondurable removable absorbent sheets, said sheets being provided with scoring adjacent the edges thereof to permit individual removal of sheets from said pad without disengagement of the pad from said back portion, marginal extensions on said back portion turned back over said pad and means adjacent the edges of said back portion and pad and on said marginal extensions cooperating to hold said'pad on said back portion.
