I LOVE plaid! I believe my first pair of glasses were plaid... it's hard to remember... I was 3 1/2 at the time. In high school, pastel plaid skirts were very popular, and although I never owned one, I thought they were beautiful! My senior year in high school, I made myself a plaid jumper to wear to church for Christmas Eve services... one of my mother's friends made the same jumper pattern out of the same fabric... Mom said it showed that we both had good taste! When I was in college, my mom made a long plaid skirt for me to wear to a Christmas party. When my first granddaughter was born, I made plaid receiving blankets for her. My favorite wool throw is plaid. Need I go on?
So, when I saw this plaid Christmas fabric, I thought it would be perfect for decoupaged shuttles. These were going to be Christmas presents, but I like them so much, I think I may keep them for myself... I know that's extremely selfish, but that's how I feel!
I chose to align the plaid differently on each side. I am so pleased with the way these turned out!
Now I think I can stop bidding on those plaid shuttles that I can't really afford! : )
