Sometimes the nicest things in life are the simplest, aren't they? This wonderful feedbag, nearly 20 inches wide by 29 inches long, was fashioned from homespun linen cloth and lovingly decorated for Moses Martin in 1853. His name and date are hand embroidered in indigo cross stitch on the front, above an inserted panel of indigo plaid. The bag has two hand-embroidered eyelets on the back top, where a drawstring can be inserted to close the bag. To see this and more vintage textiles, just click here.
