Vintage Fabric Wheat Sacks

These pretty and practical wheat sacks are crafted from entirely vintage fabrics, either floral cottons from the 1940's or vintage embroidered linen. Each sack is a beautiful fusion of 9 patchworked squares with a velvet hanging loop in one corner (in case you want to hang it on a wardrobe or door knob or from a bed post) with a vintage button to top it off. The reverse features a single panel of co-ordinating vintage fabric.

Gorgeous as the exterior is, the clever bit is the interior which is filled with beautifully fragrant lavender buds and organic wheat. You can simply pop your wheat sack in the microwave for one minute and it will heat up beautifully, releasing its wonderful fragrance. Place it on your aches and pains or pop it on your pillow for a night of sweet dreams. My cats are rather partial to mine!

Each sack measures approximately 6" square (excluding hanging loop).

£12.50 each. P&P included in the UK. £2.50 overseas P&P.

I have only one sack left. I can happily make more to order, please get in touch.

Christmas Stockings

Complete your festive fireplace and make sure Father Christmas has somewhere to leave your goodies on Christmas eve with a gorgeous stocking. I have used a vintage felted and hand dyed woollen blanket to make the body of the stocking. The top cuff (on the front side) features a lovely patchworked selection of vintage 1940s and vintage-inspired fabrics topped with some unusual Christmas themed buttons and trimmed with vintage ribbon. The toe also features one of the beautiful fabrics and there is a guiding star (to guide all those presents in!) on the front. Finally, there is a secure spotty hanging loop at the top.

Measures approximately 15" long (excluding loop) and 12" at widest point (heel to toe).

£30 each including P&P in the UK. Overseas P&P £3.

Please note: the middle stocking has been sold.
