If you have some linens that you can't seem to part with, the We are THAT Family blog has a great idea.
Working with a piece of cloth about the size of a bandana, cut it into eight equal size squares. Then stack the pieces on top of each other, turning each slightly from the one below it. Grab the back in the middle and twist all of the pieces, making them appear like an open flower. Put a few stitches in the bunch to hold it in place, then use a safety pin to attach it to a shirt, purse, jacket, whatever. They make great gifts for the women and girls in your family.
