Grandma’s Bag

farm bag and fabric

I inherited this bag from my grandma. She kept sewing and crochet stuff in it, I’ve used it for toting knitting projects around. I love it so much. The latest procurement of vintage fabric had this piece that I thought was exactly like the bag, but it’s more like its younger sister.

I was shocked and delighted to find the bag fabric in the book Textile Designs : Two Hundred Years of European and American Patterns Organized by Motif, Style, Color, Layout, and Period by Susan Meller, Joost Elffers (cover photo here).
