Heart Ornament from re purposed vintage feed sack. Sentimental sentiments for your sweetheart. Especially if she is a country girl. This ornament would look charming hanging from a door knob in farmhouse or romantic country home.
Feedsacks were some of the original multi purpose food containers. The Victorian/Edwardian and up to the WW2 years, housewives would purchase seeds or grains in these sacks then the sack would be repurposed. This feedsack fortunately has the instructions for doing so, stamped right on the bag. In lovely blue graphics, you'll see a small girl and her baby brother in their garden looking at a clothesline full of Monday wash day's laundry along with the text......."my mamma made all these from D & G WEAR-O-SAX".
The feed sack was specifically designed so mamma's could reuse it to stitch up clothing for their children, linens for their tables and shirts for their men. On the opposite side of the heart is the legend - this material unexcelled for shirts, dresses, napkins and table linens.
This little heart ornament (5.5" x 6") ( 13.7 x 15 cm) is a sweet reminder of gentler, less hurried and harried days of long ago and the women who taught us how to conserve. They, by necessity. We, by choice.
The heart is filled with polyester fiberfill and has a satin ribbon hanger. Anywhere you would like a little bit of nostalgia would be a good spot to hang your heart. On a door knob, a dresser or cupboard pull, nestled inside an indoor wreath or in a bookcase.
It's a perfect accessory for a romantic country, farmhouse chic or shabby chic home decor, therefore, making it a charming hostess gift.
