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 😉

    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!

    Debbie,
    These both look GREAT…she is one lucky gal!!! Do you know Rhonda from Blue Creek Home? She has a booth at that shop…I have been there a few times and it is a cute little mall full of treasures.

    Blessings,

    Those pillows are so cute. I live 40 miles from the Staley’s factory. Who would have thought that someone would think to use their left overs for an adorable craft. I wonder how they ended up in Alabama !

    These are just so cool! I have been trying to find some grain sacks that are reasonably priced. I have been into making pillows lately and would love to have some for myself!

    I love the grain sacks. They make amazing pillows. Yours are fantastic. We don’t find many of them here in New England. I would love to go to the Brimfield Antique show and maybe I could find some there.
    Hope you can stop by my blog and see my favorites projects.
