OK, so I’ve sort of kicked around a few ideas for curtains for the 55 Bellwood including novelty fabric and vintage hanky’s. What I finally decided on is to use various vintage feed and grain sacks. I wasn’t sure how these would look but after sewing up a couple I am actually quite digging them. They are unique and pretty neat looking. I actually don’t even mind the stains that are here and there on the sacks. I suppose it gives them a more authentic look.
Here is what they look like. Keep in mind these are hung on a rod in my house and not in the trailer just yet. I only have enough feedsacks to make 5 panels and I need enough to make 10. So the search is on to find more of them. Because I don’t have enough to do all the windows yet, this project may take awhile to complete (:
Once I get them all done I’ll show you all what they look like hung in the camper.
