It’s fall here in California. We skipped our summer and went straight to fall. This cool weather has me nesting and wanting to paint. I recently found a new surface. It’s acorns. They are everywhere this time of year. It brings the deer right up to our doorstep as we have three trees right at our front porch.
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?
