Do you think you'd enjoy grocery shopping more if you could buy your flour in bags like this?
This company didn't rely just on a pretty image of biscuits. They offered a little something extra on the back of the bag.
A stamped embroidery square for spring ...
and summer. I love that they have a little girl fishing. This was pretty clever marketing on the company's part, since customers were sure to return for the fall and winter squares.
I got a stack of plain colored feedsacks, all of which were stamped with this. Cute image.
But I think this floral print would make a prettier dress.
And for ease of sewing, you can't beat buying a bag of Globe flour.
With a dress pattern stamped right on the back.
I hope we can still be friends if I do nothing but blog about feedsacks. I'm going to try to go to some sales this weekend, but I kind of want to stay home with my new collection.

How sweet are those embroidery squares! I love that little girl with the fishing pole.

Trust me, we can still be friends. I am loving these posts about the feedsacks and all the variety and history. For whatever reason, they are just something we seldom see around here so it's a real treat. Thank you for sharing!

You really hit the mother lode with all those feedsacks. Wow. I'm enjoying seeing all of them as I didn't know there were so many different types.

That graphic for Wear-O-Sax with those darling kids by the clotheslines...that would have made me swoon. SWOON!

I love that Chickasha Okla sack. My DMIL grew up in that area!!

I cannot contain my drool. Had I known these were out there I would have started hoarding them earlier. Who knew they stamped them with stitching. I knew there were patterns but the stitching...oh who do I have to beat to win the bid. I am sure a small asterik after Oodles and Oodles denoting feed sacks would never hurt...Keep them coming.

I don't blame you for wanting to stay home with your stash! I would, too! Beautiful prints!

Too adorable! How resourceful and frugal to put dress patterns and embroidery squares on flour sacks. Looks like all the feedsacks are in great condition.

I can't believe there were actually flour sacks with patterns on them!!!! How fabulous!!

Permission granted. Carry on.
But only because I see things here I've never seen before (those last four words would be italicized if I could do that in a comment). Who knew?!

Well, if it tells you anything about your readership...I regularly read a blog that is about nothing but....selvedges...so, show us every darned one of those feedsacks. Oh, and where was that great vintage store you blogged about a long time ago? The one where everything is displayed so beautifully?

i'm loving seeing them all! this is kind of embarassing to admit, but for YEARS i've heard about feed sacks and feedsack quilts and thought "that sounds ugly, why would someone want something plain like that?" and then at an estate sale this year i saw a box of actual feed sacks! amazing!
May 21, 2012 at 08:36 PM
Oh I wish that flour still came in feed sacks! We go through enough around here that I would have a fantastic collection. :) These are awesome!

One of my Grandmothers always used feedsacks for her quilts. I never saw the sacks except where she lived in Mount Victory, KY. Thanks for reminding me of those wonderful memories.
