Sew Happy: How The Flowers For Freya Fabric Collection May Help You Beat The Blues

In the past, feed and flour mills began to manufacture printed sacks for their products in hopes the bags would be repurposed during a time when money was tight and supplies were limited. Homemakers began making clothing and home décor items from these printed sacks to add a little beauty to their lives when times were tough. The Flowers for Freya fabric collection was inspired by these feed sack prints and using them for your home décor and sewing projects is sure to lift your mood.  

A piece of the past

When you think about the history behind flour sack prints and how homemakers used the charming prints to make dish towels, placemats, aprons, curtains, and other home décor items, you cannot help but feel a connection to the past.
