One of our favorite series of feedsack designs featured a Mama and 4 or 5 babies of various animals. These seem to be rather scarce now, whether because they were popular and were all used up, or unpopular and did not sell, I don’t know. What I do know is that we don’t see them very often at all, and I have a limited number of images from the series. Here are fish in two colors, and yellow ducks:
I don’t know how many other kinds of animals were featured on these sacks, nor how many different colors were used, and as I said have seen relatively few examples. It strikes me as odd that I don’t remember ever seeing this pattern featuring hens and chicks! If you know of other examples, we’d love to hear about them. One other picture I did find in our archive was the one featuring pigs.
I believe this one was available in several different colors as well, but have no other examples to show. Did they do horses, cows, or other farm animals? It only seems logical that they would, and we’d love to see pictures of any that you may have found in your travels.
Do you have favorites of the novelty designs? Or are florals your passion? The possibilities are seemingly limitless, and suggestions for future Feedsack Friday topics are always welcome!
