J and I whipped, whipped, whipped out this tech cover for M's birthday on Friday. In like 30 minutes, from choosing which feedsack to done! M's wallet is made from a repurposed moneybag by Rikkianne at chakrapennywhistle. In the spirit of black shoes / black belt or brown shoes / brown belt, now M's accessories coordinate! He's one hip dude ('coursin I already knew that...).
Here are some of the other feedsacks we considered. Love the Guaranteed Analysis above!
A few years ago, our block and the block behind us had a group garage sale. (We live in an old neighborhood, and all the garages are detached from the homes and accessible via a shared alley.) I wandered down the alley to say hi to my neighbors and see what other fun things they had for sale. This sweet, older woman, who lives behind us and whom I had never met, had her garage stacked top-to-bottom with bins of every kind of old linen, sheet or textile you could imagine! She sets up at antique shops and such. I had no clue! I bought these feedsacks from her, and I haven't seen her since. :(
