Textile Tuesday: Plaid

In Brooklyn, we see A LOT of plaid. A lot of hipsters wearing plaid.

But where did plaid come from before hipsters claimed this print?

Plaid originated from its brother, Tartan. Tartan came from the Scottish highlanders, where the number of stripes and colors signified which family clan, the wearer belonged to. The print became so popular that it deviated from solely representing the Celtic Family name to being just plain cool. Found in kilts, plaid became the symbol of the Scottish. The Scottish began to mutiny from the English and thereby became the symbol of rebellion. And who loves rebellion? Hipsters do.

Plaids require more time and consideration when used for craft or clothing projects because the horizontal or vertical lines will need to match. In fact, some patterns will come right out and say that you can’t use plaid.

There are so many variations of plaid that there is bound to be at least one (or more!) prints that will be appropriate for your next craft or clothing project!

In fact, we have some listed on our Ebay SEW Moni Craft House site

The street light outside my bedroom window is seriously blinding at night. Also, it’s glow against a collage of trees creates the strangest shadows that pear into my room once the lights are out and giving me Porltergeist vibes. What’s a girl to do? Make curtains!
After a little bit of research, I found a link to help with the process:

I’m thinking about organizing my fabrics (yet again) and found this cute picture from The Black Apple. I’d never thought about using jars for my rick rack. Thanks Black Apple!
