I have decided socks are a rather sensitive subject in most homes If anyone stumbles onto the perfect way to keep socks orderly and neat and in pairs please do let me know! And if you missed my post about Sorting Socks you can find it here.
I love antique grain sacks. I could very easily become a hoarder of antique grain sacks. At least stacks and stacks of grain sacks would be prettier than stacks of newspaper or old shoe boxes!
I know I could have made my own grain sack tote, but Ann had one that I really liked, already made, she had a sale the beginning of the year, and besides, when would I ever find time to make a tote for myself?? Seriously.
And after the grain sack tote arrived I decided I probably couldn’t make one as well as Ann did! I am seriously impressed with her sewing skills. Go check out her shop and I can assure you that anything you purchase from her will be very well made – highest quality you can find! I’m crushing on her United States flag pillow - wish I’d thought of that one first The tag she sewed inside the tote is so professional and sweet too. It matches her blog and her etsy shop and I think that is totally cool.
In the bottom of the tote is a piece of thick cardboard covered with a lovely striped cotton fabric. Really adds a nice touch of structure to the tote.It is removable so if you needed to wash the tote you could take the fabric covered cardboard out first.
The first photos show the color more properly but it looked so pretty in the sunshine the other morning I had to share this photo too. Warm sunshine makes anything happy!
Go visit Ann and tell her I sent you! She has become a great friend and I really hope to meet her IRL sometime soon!
