Fabric Stamping Swap Idea for India

When we did India, I found out that they did a lot of fabric stamping to put designs on fabric for clothes. So we stamped small squares of fabric for our swaps. I bonded two layers of fabric together to give it more body and so it wouldn't fray, but you could just use a sturdy fabric and cut the squares with pinking shears. I also had the advantage that someone lent us wooden stamps from India to do it. However as I remember they were animals (a bird and an elephant) and geometric designs so that shouldn't be hard to deal with.
