Available in a range of colors. I think I'm going to hem up most of these for tablecloths - some for me, some for Etsy. Making a feedsack tablecloth is about the easiest thing in the world.
In an attempt to break this collection into manageable parts, I thought I'd try to pick a theme. Today's is all-American feedsacks.
Had to show you this tag I found sewn to one of the sacks (the couple whose collections were auctioned yesterday sold at shows.) Love this kind of thing. (Somebody, quick, do the math: If 34 million tons of feed were packed in feedsacks, and a full-size feedsack held 100 pounds, how many feedsacks does that make? And where are they?) (I think it's 680 million, but I'm more of a word person than a numbers person.)
Another cheater. There were three of these, but I'm keeping one for myself. In the unlikely case that I need a project. I think quilting this would be pretty fun (not to mention easy). Both of these cheater feedsacks, by the way, are in my Etsy shop. I'll be listing others on eBay, to start tonight and Sunday night. (The link is in the sidebar, if you want to check and see how fast I can wash, iron and photograph feedsacks. Or you can just take my word for it: Not nearly as quickly as I wish.)
