The small town where my son goes to college only has 1 antique store, but I always check it out when we’re there. Most things are a bit pricey, but I keep my eye out for small, less expensive items, and I found one I loved. It’s a very small antique flour sack. It had a paper tag envelope still attached to it, which explains that the sack held just a sample amount of King’s Castle flour, and originally included recipes which could be made with the sample amount. The recipes had been removed from inside the envelope, but it was really the sack I was interested in anyway.
I love the graphic on the front, so I scanned it and digitally removed the stain that was on the bag, so you can use it as a printable image. I think it would make a great iron-on transfer for a pillow or towel, so I’m including the reversed image as well.
It’s such a small sack, but is so cute. I’m not sure what I’ll do with it yet, so if you can think of some ideas, let me know!
I also liked a portion of the image on the envelope, and think it would look great with the lettering traced onto wood, then painted to make a sign. The words on the envelope were pretty small, so it can’t be enlarged too much without becoming grainy looking, but I think it’s fine to enlarge just to use as a pattern to trace.
Let me know if you think of something creative to make with these images!
