February 6, 2009 My Feedsack Valentine – Feedsack Friday

Filed under: ◦Fabrics,◦Feedsack Friday,◦rickrack.com,◦Vintage — sharon @ 2:02 pm

Just over a week until the big day, the occasion of gifts of candy and flowers and everything with a heart motif, so this week we’re beginning the celebration with feedsacks for the romantic, each decorated with hearts and most with flowers. First, three colorways of this valentine feedsack with lacy hearts, bows and scattered rosebuds and tiny hearts:

All of the next three feature hearts in red, but blue plays an important part two, in the flowers of the first and third and the background of the one in the middle.

Next, a pair with yellow hearts enclosing roses, alternating with hearts composed of flowers in the same color as the roses….

Three more with hearts and flowers:

The next two use hearts as part of a folk art motif, so they are perhaps less appropriate for Valentine’s day, but the final one looks like it was made just for the occasion.

One more thing; we often notice that vintage fabrics that are not feedsack were printed in the same patterns as feedsacks. In the case of our Valentine’s day special selections, we have two examples currently on the novelty fabrics section of our website:
