Grain Sack Pillow

There’s a little store in Dadeville Al that I like to visit.

Old Bank Antiques

While I was there in November ’11, I found a couple of grain sacks*.

When I asked my baby girl what she wanted for Christmas,

she said, Just Make Me Something!

I washed and dried one of the old sacks.

and I cut it in half.

I stuffed in a couple of pillows.

Sewed it up.

Took a few pictures.

Wrapped them up and gave them to her for Christmas, she loved them!

*I saved one for me 😉

  5. These are fabulous! What a great present! I’ve never been lucky to find any grain sacks. Coffee sacks seem to be everywhere and as much as I love them they aren’t as soft as what yours look like. I think I need to make it my mission to find some this year and make some pillows! Thanks for the inspiration!


  6. And baby girl LOVES them! They are the BEST!!!

  7. Love this project! I’m new to your blog and can’t wait to read more…now following 🙂

  9. You could totally sell these on Etsy! They look great!

  10. Lovely! I love finding old grain sacks at auctions. Sometimes they’re buried at the bottom of the boxes that nobody wants to bid on.

    Stuffing them with pillows is a wonderful idea. Think I’ll make a few of these.

    Thank you!
