Hello Dear Ones,
Do you love antique European grain sacks? They’ve been a favorite for a while now.
I love them! Their texture! They were made to last for years, and that has certainly been accomplished. They date back to the 1800’s, made of a hemp fabric, or very thick linen.
As you might have guessed, the stripes and monograms identified the farmer.
I took a grain sack and turned it into a pillow today. A perfectly simple transformation, you can do at home.
Bob had sliced up a branch for me, to turn into buttons. I took the little slivers of wood and drilled holes in them. Voila!! Simple buttons, for my grain sack pillow!
I just went to my nearest discount store, Ross, and purchased a king sized bed pillow.
I didn’t make button holes, but should the future owner need to wash the bag again, the five “buttons” will have to be sewn back on.
Simple as pie! And I love pie!
