BarnYardBagLadies Sponsor Review

From these discarded feedsacks to these beautiful upcycled bags!!

How do you like that name?? BarnyardBagLadies, I just love it!!

If it comes in a feed sack, they can make an upcycled tote bag out of it!! Dogs, Cats, Horses, Chickens, Goats, you name it!

Not only tote bags though, they can also make messenger bags, diaper bags, book bags.. the possibilities with these creative ladies is endless!

Believe me, we go through a lot of feed sacks on a farm. I have always hated throwing these away, but other than using them for trash bags I never dreamed of making something so creative out of them. The craftmanship is just outstanding on these bags, and they are extremely durable. They held 40-50 pounds of feed in them at one time so you know they are made tough.

Look at these beautiful Horse Bags.
I know my Kentucky horse loving friends will be all over these bags!!

Since I don't have a horse.. yet.. I decided a multi animal bag would be perfect for me! We currently have chickens, a calf and 2 goats on our mini KY farm! I love the little goat down on the bottom of the bag!

The quality of these bags is outstanding! They are washed thouroughly and easy for you to wash as well. The straps are 25 inches long, perfect size for an over the shoulder tote bag. The straps are made of jute and often times vintage or unique fabric to help add to the creativity.
Inside the bottom of the bag is a removable, fabric covered, recycled cardboard bottom panel. Most of them are covered with repurposed dinner napkin fabric which can be washed if needed.
Constructed in Atlanta Ga using heavy duty upholstery thread to hold tight the flexible plastic fabric.

Cindy Stack and Janice Knocke.. The BarnYardBagLadies have done an outstanding job at repurposing these feed sacks.
These work great for gift giving! I am putting this at the top of my suggested gift ideas for your country loving family and friends! My aunt was visiting when my bag arrived and she tried to convince me to give it to her!! No way! It is my new favorite bag.

  6. such a great idea and they are very cute too!

  7. I'm not a huge fan of animal motifs and the country look but I think my kids would love the bag with Puss in boots on it! They look wonderfully sturdy for lugging around all the trappings of childhood! A very practical way of re-purposing feed bags.

  8. Those are very cute bags :)
    I know I have thought of making bags out of the cat food bags that I have to buy for my cat, so this is just great to see someone doing an idea that I haven't acted on yet :)

  9. I think this is a really neat idea to use those leftover pet food/feed bags... my friend is a horse lover big time and I know she would love these!

  10. These are awesome! Id love to have them to take to horse shows.
