Vintage Army Litter covers?!!

I saw these at an estate sale. They kept saying they are litters....I always keep listening when I don't know what someone is talking about hoping I will catch on...well I didn't.

So I finally asked what a litter was.
It's the cot they use to carry hurt soldiers on....
They kept telling me they had the wooden poles to go with the canvas.

Well that's not what I saw in them.

They remind me of US mail bags.

Very heavy material.  I love the binding.

With the stamp on the end.

I'm trying to figure out how to do this.  I think I will wash them a couple time to soften them.  I got 4, 3 still in the package as you can see for $2.00 each, half price!
I will show you what I do with these.
Happy Thrifty Thursday to all of you!
Enjoy your day!
It's a beautiful day here in central Florida.
No humidity.....not bragging here....I know you all up north are pretty sick of the cold and snow.  Spring is just around the corner and it will be beautiful!!!!
I'm linking with Leigh at Tales from Bloggeritaville.
Thanks Leigh!
