A sweet ol' HEI-SON Chick Feed sack has been carefully repurposed as a Little Messenger Bag. Great graphics and nicely aged muslin make this one especially appealing. Originally manufactured in Allentown, PA by Samuel J. Heiney & Sons (go ahead, insert butt joke here), these little 2 lb. sacks are unusual and hard to come by in decent shape.

Lined with interfacing for stability, the feed sack was then cut in two sections and attached with decorative stitching to the front and back of the purse, which is constructed of golden calico fabric. Lined with sage green minicheck. Finished off with decorative topstitching and a smidgen of crocheted lace.

Smaller than my other Messenger Bags (see last photo), this one measures 9" across the top and 7" deep. Strap is 1 1/4" wide and 37" long, knotted in center.

One of a kind. Original. Sweet. And if I ever get another rooster I'm naming him Samuel J. Heiney.
