Vintage seed sacks

A friend asked me to make some totes out of these vintage seed sacks.


I put the canvas on the bottom to preserve as much of the original design as I could. If I had not, the design would have been on the bottom of the bag, subjected to more wear and tear.

Wanting to conserve the vintage feel of these bags, I used ticking stripe on the inside to coordinated with the canvas bottoms.

These seed sacks had all sorts of markings on them...and I wanted to preserve those as well.

Like the hand pointing to the seam with instructions on how to tear open the bag. It became an interior pocket.
