{ Vintage Feedsacks } Putting a Modern Twist on a Vintage Design

A lot of modern designers are pulling inspiration from vintage designs that are free for the taking. I love the idea of putting a modern twist on a vintage design. I’m contstantly scouring the net for images of vintage feedsacks and often recognize certain prints because I have a modern version in my stash.

Here are several comparisons I can pull from my collection. Can you tell which print is the vintage feedsack and which print is the modern version?

I would love to hear of any more modern designs you can spot based on vintage feedsacks.
