I was watching "The Dream of Sparrows" (from Netflix) a low-budget documentary made by Iraquis.  One of hte interview subjects is a teenage girl who could do nothing else during the invasion but sew.  She made tons of little dolls, with little book bags, and books that expressed her fears and hopes. Also, all these little cross-stitched pillows.  No patterns or templates, just working with scraps. Amazing.

I really reccommend this film... no matter what your politics.  It's a pretty amazing picture of life over there.
