In my attic is a giant collection of home decorator sample pieces which is threatening to take over all available space. A good friend works for an interior decorator who was decreasing her sample collection and my friend knew I'd love this fabric. Much of it is perfect to use as fronts and backs of pillows and is all high-quality cottons, wools, and mostly natural fiber blends. For simple gifts, a stenciled peace sign is perfect to jazz up the pillow fronts and I only needed to buy pillow forms which are inexpensively obtained at JoAnn Fabrics or Michael's with coupons.
For my secret santa - a dance teacher at my school who organized several Peace Days.
Don't these look like hops?
For my friend who housed my youngest for a few days so he could ski over break.
