What a great fashion show! I knew women were making other garments with feedsacks, but I've also only seen aprons.

You've got to admire the resourcefulness of this mother -- perhaps raising her family on a farm during the Depression, and still managing to sew her daughters such cute and cheery outfits. I want to make that bunny dress today!


P.S. Congratulations on your son's graduation. He must have managed to graduate in record time, because it seems like only a couple of years ago that you were writing about him leaving home for college.


Congrats to young Mr Oodles! We also had a college graduation last week for my son who has been a senior and taking a full load for the LAST 3 YEARS. Sorry to shout. May all college graduates have a decent job in the near future!

Recreational laundry. I love your finds. Reminds me of my grandmother, although hers were always house dresses that buttoned up the front.


The sweetest fashion show!! Love all the skirts!! Congrats to your son!! Happy week to you! xo Heather


Recreational Laundry - love that terms! It perfectly describes my wash, rinse and repeat ritual. 8+)

Congratulations on your son's graduation! Such a pretty laundry line. That feedsack Easter dress is just precious.


Good for your son, congrats to you both! And you're right, it's the cutest feedsack dress I've ever seen!

I love those skirts! Will you be selling any of them? By the way I was curious where this auction was in PA because I think I almost went to it?

My Mom was the youngest of 10 kids and all her clothes were made from feedsacks by my Grandma. What a lovely selection!

Yer killing me. Gorgeous! I have a little girl's feedsack sundress that is just the sweetest thing.

I'm a newbie to your blog. I feel like I've found a treasure...love your obsession with feedsacks. I've only seen ugly feedsack fabric. I must not be looking in the right places. I've Never ever seen pretty feedsack fabric like in your "fashion show". Wow!! I have a whole new reason to go junking now. I can't wait to find my first feedsack. Can you believe I don't own 1 piece of feedsack? I'm a prolific quilter and would love to have some FS fabric for my quilts.
