    Feedsack advice

    Tonite a neighbor gave me 5 trash bags full of fabric from her mom's home. Imagine how excited i was to find some feedsack with a paper pinned to it...WWII chicken feed sack! It's rose colored with navy flowers. I need suggestions on how to use it to best advantage. I'm thinking snowballs...anyone else have ideas? I kind of don't want to cut it little pieces, but i do want a 30's look. Help!

    Snowballs would be great! Actually anything you do with it would be great -- I love vintage fabrics! You are so lucky to have this gift of feed sacks to work with.

    I bought a couple of e-books. In fact,I buy all my books in e-book form to save mailing costs and time. Martingales has a similar sale every week but for a few titles only. It's their WOW of the week sale.

    I agree with the snowball block. It'll show off your wonderful fabric.
