Neat item – Enesco’s Betsy Ross pin cushion/tape measure from the Kitchen Independence line! Measures 4 ¾” tall and is in very good condition – she has a teeny ding (fleck) on the back of her chair and the tape measure has sprung. It could probably be replaced with a small round tape measure because it just sets inside the figurine – not attached but held in place with a couple small pieces of newspaper (original to item). Pincushion is sawdust filled...

This feed sack has an unusual pattern with very pretty colors! It has a white background with beautifully detailed flowers and leaves that are in two shades of purple. The flowers could be morning glories or cornflowers and they are light and dark purple color. Feed sack has been opened and measures 36” x 42”. I have laundered and ironed it and found it to be in wonderful condition. There is a 1/8” x 1/8” thread separation/snag in one flower.

Lovely pattern on this feed sack – it’s a white background with little squares of pretty brown/tan checks that alternate with colorful flowers of yellow with brown leaves and purple and tan flowers with green leaves. Unusual!

This sack is a little smaller than others we have listed. It measures 33” long, 20” wide (approximately 40” when seam stitching is removed). It has not been cut or altered in any way, it’s just not as long as the other feed sacks...

We have listed many lovely and unusual feed sacks (and have many more to list) but this one is by far the most unusual! It has a purple/lilac color background and the design is alphabet letters U, V, W, X, Y, and Z!!

Interspersed throughout the feed sack are the letters V and X – they are white letters outlined in black and are interspersed with pretty white flowers with yellow centers.

The letters U, W, Y, and Z are yellow inside white squares and show an animal for thos...

This is a colorful feed sack – red, pink, and white with blue fruit – and is from the same estate sale as the other feed sacks we’ve listed! This one was not properly opened – it appears as though the thread was cut or torn instead of being pulled/unraveled causing the material to have a somewhat jagged top edge. Because of this, the sack measures 33” in length. Side and bottom seam have not been removed/opened. Feed sack has been laundered and pressed. Very pretty!

This is another very colorful feed sack with a pretty pattern! It has been laundered, pressed, and is in wonderful condition. Feed sack has been incorrectly opened – I’m not certain how it occurred but it has an almost diagonal type seam/opening resulting in a “non-square”. It measures 47 ½” long and 38” wide but remember it’s not even/square. Do not be deterred – this is a very pretty piece of vintage fabric.

Doesn’t this feed sack have an unusual pattern? It has a white background that’s almost completely covered with little blue diamonds, beige squares, and lime green color rectangles. Feed sack has been opened and measures 37” x 46”. Laundered, pressed, and in wonderful condition – I noticed a few stretched holes from the original heavy thread at top closure -- that's it! Nice!

This feed sack has an almost Victorian design and is somewhat unusual in that it has a colored background rather than white! It’s a pale yellow with the pattern having dark gold, light gray, and black colors – very pretty. Feed sack has been opened and measures 35 ½” x 46”. It has been laundered, pressed, and is in wonderful condition.
