this weekend’s theme

~ grain sacks ~

 Back in October, I received some grain sacks from a blog friend, Cathleen from Today Along The Journey.

And I have had the most fun with them! Know what I LOVE about grain sacks the very most? You can use them as is without sewing if desired!

Christmas stockings.

Pillows, pillows, and more pillows!

I just love how eclectic and versatile they are.  And they do a lovely job brightening up a darker sofa too.

Espresso pillow was made by The Little Green Bean. LOVE it!

Not all of us are fortunate to land authentic ones though. So what do you do then to achieve the look?

Why, fake it of course. Make them yourself. 🙂

And if you need inspiration, Miss Mustard Seed’s grain sack styled slipcover creations are stunning.

And follow along this tutorial on painting one yourself.

What’s your fav thing to do with grain sacks?

Hope you brought yours along! Link’em up in this weekend’s 3rd themed linkup below.

“What is it?” junk linkup. Choose an item in which you have NO idea on what it’s original purpose was, and create! This should be a fun one. 🙂



Be sure to check the themed linkups master list to add your newest creations anytime. They’re always open. List HERE.

 2. Please put a link in your post (button or text) that leads back to the party so others can see what’s up. (see BUTTONS label under main blog header)

4. For Home Decor and Crafts, Sewing, Cooking, please link projects up that are new to SNS and/or within 1 month old.  This helps keep content fresh.

  1. Very cool! I have to say, grain sacks are one thing I don’t have in the house. I used to, years and years ago, not sure what happened to them.
    Thanks so much for hosting Donna! When I was adding my aqua mason jars to the window, I thought of you 🙂

  2. I love your grain sacks. They’re so expensive around here, I’m just going to have to make my own. Thanks for giving me some inspiration. Have an awesome weekend!

  3. I don’t have any grain sacks Donna…I saw some at the little antique shop I visit frequently but didn’t buy them….way to high. Thanks for sharing your ideas with them.

  4. I really love all the grain sack ideas. Its such a sturdy piece of fabric that can looks so lovely when used for other things. I didn’t have any grain ones exactly but I do have coffee ones. I saw others link up so I went ahead and linked my coffee one up. Not exactly a grain though 🙂 I may have to go faux since I haven’t found any.

  5. as usual, great looking party, my favorite of the week!! i always like all the projects that i see using grainsacks, but do you know i’ve never actually been able to find one in person? it’s frustrating, maybe it’s time to “fake” one.

  6. I just love grain sacks, or feed sacks as they call them here in western NC! I got some from my mom last summer but I have not figured out how to used them yet. Looking forward to seeing all these ideas for them! I’m a new follower. Not sure why it took me so long to get here!

  7. I’m currently on the hunt for grain sacks – free, of course because that makes it all the more fun! In the meantime, I’m playing with burlap and pretending that it’s grain sacks! Another great linky here tonight – very inspired! -diane

  8. Hi Donna,
    Congrats on over 4000 followers. You’re challenge with MMS looks like it will be a lot of fun.
    Thanks for the feature on my foot stool makeover! The stool and the sugar sack were just made for each other. Have a wonderful week.
