Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without...October 9th, 2009 in member junk
A great use for bags that have outlived their purpose! All of these items have been made from antique or vintage grain sacks or mangle cloths. Some are European, some are american, all have great graphics, a super soft feel from years of use, and are more durable than anything you could buy today. They are eco-friendly and not just because they are repurosed "used" materials, but because most of the fabrics were made prior to the use of chemicals in farming. The patterns are my own design-the apron from a vintage french farmhouse photo and the bags from whatever the fabric would allow. Some graphics (like the messanger bag) were already on the fabric, and others (like the fish) I did with stencils.
Pattern or design used: My own design - Jackie, from Bliss Farm Antiques
