Reclaim Vintage Treasures: WIP

For those of you who follow me on Instagram… you know I was on the hunt for treasure last weekend.
And even though the weather was bad I found a ton of vintage buttons, sewing machine parts and other cool stuff at the Metrolina Tradeshow Expo. (Sounds fancy but it is like a massive flea market with tons of vintage!)

These feedbags were one such find. The main reason I bought them is kinda funny. At first glance, I thought one of the bags said “Super Chick” and that was how I was feeling. So, they had to be purchased. These babies cost me $5 bucks. Big spender, I know but these babies needed to be washed and transformed into something super chic worthy.

 

I just love to reclaim vintage and can not wait to show you what I stitched together!

    I have two vintage feed bags. What are your suggestions for using them?

    • I have seen them make the most amazing pillows, table runners, bags and wall art. I will be sharing my bag on Friday if I can get a few good pictures today/tomorrow. Fingers crossed the weather holds out.

    I actually don’t live too far away from Charlotte and would love to go to the Metrolina Expo. Did you go for a specific event? Or do they have the flea market part every weekend? It sounds like fun!!
