I made a “dream pillow” for a friend. It was fun to make and she was delighted with it. You can make a dainty pillow, or, as I did, buy one. I bought a white cotton lace pillow, about twelve inches across, and with a two inch by three inch piece of material, I sewed by hand a pocket on the back of the pillow, leaving one of the four sides unsewn.
Then I took small pieces of paper and wrote words on them, like “joy”, “sweet dreams”, “healing” and favorite Scripture like “love one another as I have loved you”. Create about ten of these good wish papers, and tell your friend to place one in the dream pillow pocket in the evening. Give her some extra blank papers so she can create her own dreams. You don’t need to stick to a white cotton lace pillow; if a heart shaped pink pillow or a yellow floral design suits your friend, pick that for your friend's dream pillow. This can be a very inexpensive gift, if you are a bargain hunter like me, and find a pillow on sale.
