A Busy Week

Thanksgiving and a craft show in the same week! Had lots of fun, but I'm pooped!

Think I'll unpack the car tomorrow.

Feedsack Fabric

I love fabric. All kinds. Recently, I've started to collect feedsack fabric. Initially feedsacks were plain unbleached cotton with product brands printed on them. Around 1925 colorful prints began to appear. Women would use them to make everything from quilts to dresses. Eventually it became cheaper to replace the fabric with paper sacks.

I love the coarse weave and colorful prints of these fabrics. Perfect for making pincushions!
