Beskrivelse
    CROSS REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS
  • [0001]
    This application is closely related to and claims benefit from U.S. Provisional Application Ser. No. 60/717,888 filed Sep. 16, 2005.
  • FIELD OF THE INVENTION
  • [0002]
    The present invention relates, in general, to a bed sheet, and, more particularly, the present invention relates to a bed sheet which is partially split in the middle so as to accommodate two individuals who may have different sleeping preferences.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • [0003]
    Couples that share the same bed may not always agree when it comes to sleeping with or without covers. If one person is too warm the covers may be pushed aside, whether the other person wishes to use the covers or not. Pulling the sheets or stealing the covers has been common complaint through the years for those who share the bed. This can lead to an individual losing sleep or to one or both individuals being uncomfortable. Getting an insufficient amount of rest often results in irritability problems and a lack of concentration at home or work.
  • [0004]
    Thus, it would be advantageous if there were a way to allow individuals sharing the same bed the opportunity to experience a more comfortable and restful sleep by being able to sleep with or without covers whatever is the individuals preference.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • [0005]
    In a first aspect the present invention provides a bed cover for use with two persons sharing a bed. The bed cover including at least one of a sheet, blanket, spread and comforter. The bed cover featuring a split substantially down a center of such bed cover for a predetermined distance so that each person sharing such bed could have an individual preference of being one of covered and uncovered.
  • OBJECTS OF THE INVENTION
  • [0006]
    It is, therefore, one of the primary objects of the present invention is to provide a bed cover that is split so as to provide each of a couple sharing a bed the opportunity to be covered or uncovered.
  • [0007]
    Another object of the present invention is to provide a split bed cover that would include sheets, blankets and comforters.
  • [0008]
    Still another object of the present invention is to provide split bed covers that are made by using two pieces and sewing then together up to a certain point.
  • [0009]
    Yet another object of the present invention is to provide split bed covers that are made by splitting a single unit for a predetermined distance.
  • [0010]
    Another object of the present invention is to provide a split bed covers wherein the split portion is seamed and bordered.
  • [0011]
    These and various other objects and advantages of this invention will become apparent after a full reading of the following detailed description, particularly, when read in conjunction with the attached drawings as described below and the appended claims.
  • BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
  • [0012]
    FIG. 1 is a perspective view of the bed cover showing a split sheet according to an embodiment of the invention.
  • [0013]
    FIG. 2 is a perspective view of the bed cover in which two separate panels are sewn together at the bottom making a split sheet according to an alternate embodiment of the invention.
  • [0014]
    FIG. 3 is a perspective view of the bed cover shown in FIG. 1 with one side of the split sheet being pushed down while the other side is up at the top of the bed.
  • BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PRESENTLY PREFERRED AND ALTERNATE EMBODIMENTS OF THE INVENTION
  • [0015]
    Prior to proceeding with the more detailed description of the present invention it should be noted that, for the sake of clarity, identical components which have identical functions have been designated by identical reference numerals throughout the several views illustrated in the drawings.
  • [0016]
    In a first aspect the present invention provides a bed cover, generally designated 10, for use with two persons sharing a bed. The bed cover 10 includes at least one of a sheet, blanket, spread and comforter. The bed cover 10 features a split 2 substantially down a center of such bed cover 10 for a predetermined distance so that each person sharing such bed could have an individual preference of being one of covered and uncovered.
  • [0017]
    The split bed cover 10 is attached at a bottom portion of the bed cover 10. In the case where the split bed cover 10 is a sheet the bed cover 10 would be split down to the thickness portion 4 of the mattress as can be seen in FIG. 1. The portion of the sheet 10 that would lie on top of the mattress would be split 2. Thus, only that portion 6 of the sheet that extends from the top part of the mattress at the foot of the bed and extending to the portion tucked under the mattress would remain connected.
  • [0018]
    The above description is for an embodiment in which a single unit (sheet) is split 2 down the middle. In an alternate embodiment of the invention such split bed cover 10 can be made by having two separate pieces 8,9 and then sewing 12 the two pieces up to an appropriate point 4. In the case where the bed cover 10 is a sheet, the appropriate point 4 would be the same as described above; that is, the portion of the sheet tucked under the mattress up to the top portion of the thickness 4 of the mattress would be sewn and the part of the sheet on top of the mattress would be split 2.
  • [0019]
    It is preferred that the split bed cover 10 be seamed and bordered so that when the bed is made the sheet, blanket, comforter or spread would look like it was a single unit. There should be sufficient overlap that it would appear as one piece on a made bed.
  • [0020]
    Thus, the split bed cover 10 would accommodate each individual sharing such bed with their own preference. That is, one person could be uncovered while the other person could be completely covered. This would apply to sheets as well as any other bed covers on top of the sheets.
  • [0021]
    Thus, the split sheets 10 (or other bed covers) of the present invention provides that two individuals sharing the same bed can enjoy their preference of being covered or uncovered without impacting the preference of the other. The split sheets 10 also covers a variety of bed covers such as blankets, comforters or spreads which are also split similar to the sheets. The split bed covers 10 look like one when the bed is made but each portion of the sheet can easily be pulled up or pushed down according to the preference of the individual. Even though the split sheet 10 is a fully functional component on the bed covering, the split sheet 10 will be unobtrusive and aesthetically pleasing to look at when not in use.
  • [0022]
    While a presently preferred embodiment and alternate embodiments of the present invention has been described in detail above, it should be understood that various other adaptations and/or modifications of the invention can be made by those persons who are particularly skilled in the art without departing from either the spirit of the invention or the scope of the appended claims.
