I have used feedsacks a lot at Cedar Hill, and I thought I would show you all of them combined into one post. Well, there are a few pillows I don’t have photos of, but this is most of them.
I ripped the seams out of this feedsack and used it as a long table runner.
When I redid my daybed, this feedsack was converted from a tablerunner into two very large pillows. I show how to make these pillows, here.
What was left of the feedsack, I used as a tablecloth for a small table. You can see this post, here.
Another feedsack was used as a short table runner; I used it as it was, without ripping the seams.
The larger pillow below is an antique feedsack. It has a date written on it, 1913. This feedsack was used to make two square pillows, and two neckroll pillows. The little pillow is a new one. You can more of my back porch, here.
Below you can see a close-up of the feedsack neckroll pillows.
Here is another feedsack pillow I made. I got four pillows out of this one feedsack. All four are shown above, and you can see a close-up of one of the pillows below. I show how to make these, here.
These pillows can also be seen below in the girls’ room.
And I have also bought items that look like they were made from vintage feedsacks that are actually new, like these pillows,
