Hey thanks all!
I have some really nifty satin, velveteen and silk scraps...And I thought if I kept my eyes open at the thrift store/Goodwill perhaps I could lay my hands on four nice soft wool sweaters that I could recycle into hat/scarf/mitten sets. Then, I could line them with my lov-e-ly scraps to cut down on the itch-factor and lend a little pizazz.
I can usually find 1-2 cashmere sweaters a month in the men's section. If I'm dilligent enough - maybe I can go all lush.
But any other ideas are welcome! They also have birthdays...
