did you know?

did you know farm mothers, from the Great Depression, sewed clothes from flour & seed burlap sacks! as you can see this mommy is wearing a skirt made from one, in this picture you have to look carefully to see how filthy all of them are & their clothes are shredded~

Later some companies began making the sacks with pretty patterns, knowing they could be used for clothing~

isn't that something!
