Ever heard of a feed sack? Once upon a time, when times were rough, someone thought it would be a good idea to sell livestock feed in colorful cotton bags. That way, when the feed was eaten, the farmer's wives could make pretty things with the sack. Reduce, reuse, recycle, right?
I am the very fortunate recipient of some of my Grandmother's mother's feed sacks. My mom found some left in my Grandmother's house when she died, and having no use for them herself, passed them on to me, her eternally creative daughter!!
I love this pink print; it's a white plaid with navy blue Scottie dogs. When I made it for Ava, she said, "Mommy! It's goor-gush!" (gorgeous) Such a big word for such a tiny voice! And such a darling one-of-a-kind dress for my precious, one-of-a-kind daughter!
You Tube! Fun, and way cheaper than buying them online.
