Vintage floursack rug

Browsing a flea market the other day I discovered a couple oval rag rugs. One eye scanning the vendors' collection, the other eye on my child, making sure the bed didn't crumble ... Lucy was tucking her little green bear into the rag rug which was displayed on an ancient doll bed.  And then my interest reverted to the oval rugs. The colours were precious.  The shape, quaint. The fabric and design, soft yet still holding together and reminiscent of a young childs' bedroom. The epitome of delicate and durable.

The vendor explained that these were vintage floursack / feedsack rugs from scraps of ... yep you guessed it ... flour and feed sacks. That piqued my interest. Wouldn't you love to get your food delivered in such pretty bags!

 A quick search on Etsy brings up other items made from vintage flour sacks.
