Feed Sacks

Feed sacksLast Sunday,  I posted a photo of a vintage feed sack (with a football player on it) taken at The Pickwick Mill in Winona, Minnesota.

Several people left comments about their fond memories of feed sacks- collecting, trading and using them for quilts and clothes.

Feed sacksPlease tell me…

Was the burlap sack just the outer layer with the floral feed sacks fabrics used for dresses and quilts an inner layer?

Or were the print feed sacks for a different product?

We’d love to hear more about feed sacks…

Please tell us YOUR feed sack story!
