Paisley! I love the paisley one. :)
I love those feedsacks!!
Went to etsy. I have a question. How large is the cloth (it says 1/2 a feed sack)? And is the fabric in good enough condition to use in a garment?
Beautiful ! Have a happy weekend.Besos ;O)
Jeannie,These pieces are all approximately 22" x 36" and are like new fabric (each one is labeled in the title with the exact size). Excellent condition! Definitely strong enough for garments!Thanks for your interest!Coralie
Love all these Vintage Feedsack Fabrics. I've collected them for years and have made a good many quilts out them and from the Feedsack Reproduction Fabrics as well. Happy Pink Saturday!
well done!! Hope you have a wonderful PINK SATURDAY!!
Coralie, your vintage feedsacks are beautiful but being entirely ignorant here, what kind of feed do these pretties hold please?Jackie
Beautiful patterns, and designs! Have a wonderful weekend..
These are from the mid 20th century when animal feed was sold in colorful cotton bags and farm wives used the sturdy cotton to make clothing and quilts. Today, we still make clothing and quilts from these saved and collectible feedsacks! Thanks for asking!I should add, there is no feed in them now. They have been gently washed, pressed, and are ready for use!
Loved your Pink Saturday post. Everything was so cute.
Hi Coralie, these feedsacks are such pretty patterns. I remember our mom making dresses out of them for us. My uncle owned the feed store so she was able to pick the best prints. We also were allowed to pick our faves. Those were the days.Hugs, Jeanne
The vintage feedsack fabrics are lovely!!! I always love vintage things!!! Thanks for sharing these with us :) Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :) p.s. This reminded me of the Kit Kittridge movie...where her mom uses the chicken feed sacks to make dresses :)
Those feedsacks are wonderful-lots of great patterns!
Pink Saturday tardy, wishing you a Happy Halloween!
I didn't know feed sacks could be so pretty. I will check it out.HPS...late,Sue
