We just spotted this adorable corduroy alphabet, and, well, you know how we feel about alphabet decor. When our kids go off to preschool and are asked to write their names for the first time, they'll probably ask the teacher for vintage fabric and pom pom fringe.
This pinwale alphabet ($14 each) is a little bit Parisian flea market and a little bit "I had a dress in kindergarten made out of that fabric!" Well done, Anthropologie. Each letter is made of cotton, mdf, and brass, an odd combination that makes them suitable for hanging on the wall, propping on top of a bookshelf, or knocking out an entruder.
