I confess......cotton fabrics are my obsession!
When I was on vacation in IN, my former DIL brought over her huge collection of feedsacks and just left them at my daughter's for me to feel, admire, look, touch, drool, check, imagine, be nostalgic.......(you get the picture..right?)
She told me to take my time, go through them and take a few that I really liked. Can you imagine?? Whoo Hoo! I was in hog heaven! I didn't count how many she had, and now wish I had. Oh well, doesn't matter. She had them in a special storage box for fabrics and they were wrapped in acid free paper....totally protected. She was so generous to share them with me.
Here's what I selected.
Four......totally different feedsacks and four different colors and patterns.
There's no way I can use them or cut them up like some sellers on Etsy. These are intact and still have the holes at the top where the heavy threads were sewn to close the sack and hold the feed inside. Of course, the fabric is coarse compared to today's fabrics........but I just love them.
If you want to learn more about the marvels of them...read about it here.
And it just makes me wonder how many of my blog readers have even heard of feedsacks, or seen one, or felt one.... or had a little flowered dress made from them that was made by your mother?? I had a red tiny flowers dress that had puff sleeves, a little white collar and buttoned up the front....all the way down. I loved it and thought it was wonderful and that I felt so special when I wore it.
What about you??
Thanks for visiting.
