National Tartan Day on April 6th has been designated as a day to celebrate Scottish heritage. I don't think I have a bit of Scottish ancestry in me, but I do love tartan/plaid.
I'm always on the lookout for wool, plaid clothing in thrift stores that I can deconstruct, wash, and make into something else. You would be surprised at the number of pieces of Pendleton, Ralph Lauren, etc. clothing that I have found for just a couple of dollars.
Pillows are my favorite thing to make from my found plaids ---
I've even been known to save scraps of plaid paper to make Christmas cards.
I think I will go celebrate by making something plaid.
Happy Tartan Day!!
