You don’t need to be a cowboy to have a zoo of animals to feed. Pets in the city and on the farm need a good meal of corn, oats and honey. You can choose a fabric or paper bag to make a perfect gift for your pet lover’s holiday. This set includes pet food bags for a horse, cow, pig, rabbit, chicken, dog and cat.
Four printable label sets are included in this PDF pattern to allow you to decide which type of pet owner you want to be. There is the classic Retro Style that will remind you of 30’s style prairie dresses made from calico cloth and muslin feed sacks. A totally up-to-date Modern Style plays with current culture. How about a totally Organic Style that features naturally healthy ingredients? Finally all three sets have been reduced in scale to allow them to work with the popular Mini Dolls and Breyer® style stable horses. That’s 48 labels for you to mix, match and imagine with!
Need more? The Retro and Modern Styles can be totally customized by you! Sixteen labels can be personalized to include your child’s name, beloved family pet’s name or even the family’s last name!! Name your cat food after your kitten, or your bunny food after your family business. Your puppy will know he’s a good dog when he sees the dog food named after him!!
With simple sewing and a few supplies, it is easy to make a perfect and personalized birthday or Christmas gift for each child on your list. Labels are printed onto t-shirt transfer sheets and computer printer fabric sheets. Boxes have a computer printed template to take out all the measuring and work well with scrapbook paper and light weight cardstocks.

This is a super fun project for the whole family! I had alot of fun making these feed bags for my 4 yr old daughter and I know that in a year from now when she is more coordinated with scissors that she will be able to help me. I'm looking forward to the bonding experience and to 18onMain's next project!!
Everyone adores the personalized bags and boxes. Th images are clear and detailed. I personally prefer the 30s style on calico fabric making them look like feed bags from that time frame. Gotta go and make more!
This pattern is too much fun! I had a blast making up silly names for the feedsacks for my daughter's doll stables. They look so realistic when they are finished. 18onMain never disappoints with a clear, well thought out, and professional pattern.
