December 18, 2009 Feedsack Friday – Before Christmas

Filed under: ◦Country Living,◦Fabrics,◦Feedsack Friday,◦Vintage — sharon @ 3:28 pm

‘Tis the week before Christmas, and all through the room, I’m looking for feedsacks to brighten the gloom…

Seems we’re about to have our first big snowstorm of the winter, and with temperatures due to stay below freezing, it may be a white Christmas for us this year. There aren’t too many feedsacks that have a Christmas theme, but we did find a few. First are these two featuring candy canes, one in the traditional red and green, the other in an unusual colorway:

That’s all we were able to find in our feedsack stash that showed a specifically Christmas theme in an overall print – but we do have one other Christmas sack from the Chase Bag Co., printed on a larger scale with scattered Santas, candy canes, presents and trees, along with the company logo. I can imagine a stack of these filled with feed at the local mill, lending an air of festivity to an otherwise workaday scene:

I’m not sure we’ll do Feedsack Friday next week on Christmas day, but hopefully we’ll still have a few other holiday-oriented postings. Happy holidays, everyone!

  2. The Chase Bag Company Christmas design was original art work created by the
    Art Director, Emil Schulke, Jr. They were supposed to be Christmas Tree
    skirts given to all employees. Also a “Merry Christmas” and “Happy New Years”
    banner were made for the employees. These items are beautiful and very
    special to me, since Emil Schulke was my father, he was a professional artist.
