feedsack fabric lust

I am loving the original feedsack fabrics. Feedsacks were initially made in the 1800’s of heavy canvas, and were used to obtain flour, sugar, meal, grain, salt and feed from the mills.Thrifty housewives took them and began to make dish clothes, diapers, nightgowns, and other household items. Magazine and pattern companies took notice and started matching fabric and wallpaper in the 1930’s and 1940’s.

Here is some of the feedsack fabric I found on etsy that I LOVE. What would you make out of these sacks?
