vintage grain sack pillows

I must be nesting. Lately all I can think about is bringing stuff home to make my house prettier and more cozy. Which brings me to these pillows.

Aren't they lovely? The pillows are made from nubby-linen, vintage grain sacks with simple blue stripes running down the center. Only problemo is that these are $125 each, and that's more than I can spend; especially when I have a pup who likes nothing more than to chew on whatever soft goods she can get her paws on.

So do any of you know of another place where I can get grain sack pillows? Or maybe just the grain sacks?

Love them! Check out Jill Bent's Etsy shop; she has grain sack pillows:

Also, I've seen grain sacks on eBay alot. I never have much luck winning any, though. They go fast and tend to be pricey. Good luck! :)

Mary - thanks for the recommendation! Looks like they're all a bit pricey, but still totally worth it.

Hi there Kristin
If you are still looking for grain sacks I have seven of them & I will sell them to you for $45.00 a piece. They are all in very good shape ~ Clean, no holes & each one about 40 inches long. I love the texture of these sacks ~ they also make great throw blankets if you put a soft fabric on the back.

Happy brocanting
