  • Patent number: 11246356
    Abstract: A sports wave bag consists of an open bag formed by the overlayment and stitching of two pieces of cloth around three edges thereof. The pieces of cloth are selectively of the team colors of a sports team. At one end of the bag is a pair of handles and at the other end is an opening through which a fan may pass his head. The sports fan may be seated with his hands received in the bag and gripping the handles at the far end thereof, exposing a first color of the sports team. In executing “the wave,” the fan stands to his feet and, while doing so, lifts his arms above his head to expose the other piece of cloth of the second team color. The effect is adding vibrancy of color and color change to the motion of “the wave” when performed at sporting events.

  • Patent number: 7526815
    Abstract: A baby bib with a protective neckline is disclosed. The bib protects the baby's clothes and skin from spilled food. A protective neck strap scrunches under a child's neck to ensure that the neckline is adequately covered and protected from food and liquid spilled or drooled out of a baby's mouth when feeding. A rear-affixed pocket is sometimes employed and is configured to be turned inside-out onto the front of the bib, forming a pouch. Back straps secure the bib to the torso of the baby. The bib is removed without moving or disturbing the baby. The bib is constructed from either waterproof and washable materials or disposable materials. Other features include various accessories such as pockets and tear-off attachments and a fastening system.
