Vintage Feedsack Tote Bags

Ahhhh ……. We’ve been absentee bloggers for a wee bit. A wee bit! Nope, we did not run away for parts unknown. While running away to the northern hills of Vermont has a certain allure, I do believe I would miss the hustle and bustle of life. Needless to say we have been absorbed with obligations, situations, and sadly a lack of motivation. You know how life can overwhelm even the most stalwart of us.

So…….. Here’s what we have been working on!


These feedsack totes are made using vintage feedsacks. Each is fully lined, trimmed with black burlap and extra long sturdy 40" handles. You can easily use this over the shoulder or across your shoulder. Each one is approximately 13" deep x 18" wide with a 4 1/2" wide base.


Perfect for grocery shopping or for the Flea Market!I LOVE that each bag is unique, recycled, somewhat faded, worn, with a few holes and tells a tale. We just received more vintage bags - no wonder my hands are itching to sew.

We will be listing them at our Etsy shop www.brissonte.etsy.com. Of course, you can always contact us directly at brissonte@gmail.com

My God richly bless your day.
