    sunflower feed sack

    Found this at a yard sale this weekend, don't know what I'm going to make with it yet, looks big enough to make about 3 or 4 dish towels.

    I'd save that sunflower for something special if your going to cut up the sack for towels.

    It would make a beautiful wall hanging. I couldn't bear to cut it up.

    It would make a nice panel for a quilt or tablecloth.

    That's what I'd do with it, too. Maybe border it with some sunflower fabric that matches it. I love it! That was quite a score on your part!
