Title Flour Sack Underwear
Description In days gone by, before the disposable throwaway generation, we saved everything and used it. Flour used to come in cloth flour sacks. We saved them and used them to make all kinds of things. The flour companies cooperated and made them in pleasing patters so wearing apparel could be made from them. FLOUR SACK UNDERWEAR When I was a kid without a care My mamma made my underwear. A lot of us and the Ranch's poor pay Who could afford lingerie? Monograms, lace and fancy stitches Were not to be found on my flour sack britches Just panty waists that stood the test. Gold Medal Flow across my chest. But the pants were best of all With a scene 1 still recall. Two bright colored turkeys. The symbol for hard red wheat. Right across my seat. Stronger than a grizzly bear That flour sack underwear "Use it up-wear it out Make it do or do without." "Waste not want not." And I soon learned that "A penny saved was a penny earned" So-I made flour sack dishtowels, curtains and bedspreads wide All of them tougher than a Hippo's hide. BUT the thing that was best beyond compare. Was that homemade flour sack underwear! Contributed by Susy Nilsson Written by her Mother 157
