Flour Sack Memories

The tactility of nostalgia warms us when we cover up with an old quilt or pull a vintage baby gown from the cedar chest.  In a world where materialism smothers us, those tattered bits of fabric remind us of simpler times and loved ones.  The imagery of a flour sack being hand-stitched into children's clothing or winter blankets inspires a wiser use of resources and an appreciation for what we already have.  Here are some of our favorite stories about textiles here at FlourSackMama.com, which come full circle to what's new in eco-conscious clothing.
