Faux Grain Sack Stripes Collection

I fell in love with Grain Sack Stripes when Marian of Miss Mustard Seed showed vintage fabric with woven in grain sack stripes. Just search grain sack on her blog and see wonderful projects. Then Angie from Knick of Time posted a tutorial on printing grain sack stripes. I started to create faux grain sack stripes. I wrote tutorials about printed and painted faux grain sack stripes. I found some canvas money sacks and... thought grain sack stripes, vintage wooden chairs, totes, wooden containers, stools were painted and grain sacked. I can see more faux grain sack striped projects in my future. Hope you enjoy a few peeks from my tutorials and projects.

  1. They say that beauty is in the eye on the beholder and this beholder says, Gorgeous! My favorite is the little caddy with the stripes going up and over the handle. This post is so inspiring, thank you.
