Feed Bag Pillows
A few months ago, I spent a week putting together samples of different vintage fabrics, swatches and antiques as "inspiration" for an upcoming home collection I'm designing. More on the home collection later…
One shop in Pennsylvania I love to visit is an old general store where you can still find vintage feed bags for sale for about $1 a piece. I decided to buy a whole stack and have some pillows made, where they shuffled back and forth between meetings as an "idea" for a product line. But now that the inspiration stage is over, I decided to pull them out of the prop closet and decorate with them.
I absolutely love the Morton's salt bag pillow up top. It's so soft and worn and the pillow insert inside makes it all cushy and great to curl up with.
And I took a larger feed bag and just used the very graphic rooster part to make a smaller throw pillow. I love the extra wide edging on it…gives it a clean, handmade touch that somehow works.
I have lots more feedbag pillows left in "case" form in need of inserts. I could go nuts and just have a million of these pillows around the house, but I think for now, these two will do. Maybe I'll give some away on the blog down the road… could be fun!
