Feedsack Yardage

From the Smithsonian, read how feedsacks were turned into clothing:

Feedsack Clothing

With that in mind, finding this bolt of what I thought was vintage fabric but turned into 4 full feedsacks sewn together to make a little over 2 1/2 yards of fabric a pretty special find.

Really, who can resist such a colorful and happy fabric?

When I took it off the bolt to measure it, I then noticed the sewn seams.

It begs the question as to what the original owner's plans regarding this fabric was?  Do you suppose she wanted to make a new dress?  Or perhaps this was the start of a quilt.

At any rate, it's a special find.  Click over to the Vintage Fabric button and read all about it!
