    Just gorgeous! You are a girl after my own heart……love farmhouse. Would love to buy some feedsacks but they are outraigeously priced. Would you have a source that is feasible? Much appreciation for your reply. Many blessings to you and yours.aa

      Thanks, Alice! Can’t say I’ve got a good source for feedsacks, sadly. I think finding them in rural area garage sales or auctions is probably the best bet. I checked Ebay and it looked like they were about $20 each (and up), which isn’t bad. Remember there’s usually graphics on both sides, so you get double the cuteness out of them if you split it apart! Good luck!

      Thanks, Alice! I haven’t come across any feedsacks for years, but there were quite a few on Ebay for $20 and up. Not bad if you consider you can usually use the graphics on both sides if you split it. Hope that helps. Good luck!

  2. Hello Lora, your chair and loveseat turned out great! I love the creative use of the buttons over the pleating creating a nice accent on the loveseat. Really like the grainsacks with the stripes ~ very nice! I’ve pinned several of your photographs to my DIY Projects, Drop Cloths and Grainsacks and Crafts to Make boards for you and for everyone to see. I had fun making some chair slipcovers this summer, if you’d like to check them out: http://www.frenchethereal.net/2017/09/drop-cloth-grain-sack-slipcover-reveal.html. The three link back to big settee and a sofa cover I made while we were still living in our last house in California; we’ve since moved with Hubby’s job change to Texas. 🙂 Hope you like them!

    Have a great weekend and it’s nice to meet you!
    Barb 🙂

        Thanks for letting me know, Barbara;)

      Barbara, They are beautiful! I love how they turned out! And I’ve been pondering a Cricut too, so it’s good to hear someone’s first experience figuring it out, since I’m not techy either! I’m planning on making some slipcovers for my chrome stools next with the other sides of the feed sacks…when I get my sewing machine back out again! Thanks for the comment!

      Thanks, Cherryl! It was fun to do some needlepoint again and it really popped all the graphics! Thanks for the comment!

  3. Another great post Lora! I can’t resist featuring you again at TFT tomorrow. Thanks for linking up!

    I love this look and I adore this project Lora, perfect fix for the upholstery. The added embroidery lends the perfect finishing touch. Your project os this weeks feature at #fridaysfurniturefix! Thanks for sharing.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Awesome, Brenda! Glad you enjoyed it! Kind of a challenge for me to do upholstery, but it was fun! Gotta always be pushing ourselves out of our creative comfort zones, right?

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Debra!

  5. That is just awesome Lora, I love the embroidery stitches on the feed sack designs!
