In the early 1940s, an estimated three million farm women and children were wearing flour-sack garments. Reaching their peak of popularity in the ‘50s, about 50 million flour sacks were sold yearly, full of flour, and then recycled into ornate aprons, pillowcase, quilts, tablecloths, stuffed toys, dolls, everyday apparel, even underwear and wedding dresses.
I thought I’d won the lottery when a friend gifted me a flour-sack apron that I’ve turned into a one-size-fits-most pattern (embroidery template included). The pattern is life-size, so enlargements are not required.
This is a Project F.A.R.M. (First-class American Rural Made) product.
All sales of patterns are final. No returns will be allowed.
