feed sack-mail sack

I finally did a little bit of sewing this past weekend....last summer I found a bunch of old, in great condition feed sacks....I bought ALL of them and I finally cut into a few of them and this is what I made. This pattern is called Mail Sack by Pink Chalk Studio. My girlfriend told me the big bag is big (pattern has two sizes) and it is BIG! But it will be perfect for me to use on little trips to shows like The Farm Chicks and The Vintage Barn. I "fussy" cut the feed sacks a few different times so you could see Spokane on the bag, Spokane is where I am from. :)

I wish I had a better picture to show....our computer is going downhill FAST, and everything I do takes FOREVER on this old computer, uploading, downloading you name it...last week I tried to install Ikea's kitchen planner, not enough memory on our hard drive!! My husband and niece's husband will probably be out this weekend looking for a new hard drive for us, yahoo!


  1. Cute! Looks like a great shape and size for carrying lots of stuff around. Love the fussy cutting :-), you did a nice job!

  2. This is absolutely fabulous Kristine! I love anything vintage and what a perfect use for the large scale of the feedsack print. I love even more that it relates to your home town, beautiful project! xo Kathy

  3. The mail sack bag looks great. I've made a few of those now, too! They fit me perfect.
