Pillows by Sheri
Sheri Levine has found a genius way to combine her passion for fabrics and her love of up-cycling: making decorative pillows. “Having been in the drapery business for the past 30 years, I have access to beautiful high-end fabrics that might otherwise be thrown away,” says Levine, who lives and works in Natick. “I love the challenge of creating a pillow around a small piece of fabric that could easily retail for $100 per yard.” Levine charges far less than that, selling directly to customers at marketplaces and through a few local shops. This is a great gift for a friend who lets you sleep on the couch now and then, or the person who is outfitting a new home. $20 and up, at Urban Exchange, South Boston; the Garage Sale, the South End; Kalembar Dune, West Roxbury, and more.
