Maybe it’s my Scottish heritage but I love all things plaid. It’s my favorite print and usually what I look for when shopping for fabric this time of year. I have several scarves that have been hanging in the closet for over a year now. Scarves really aren’t my thing, I don’t wear them as a neck accessory and it doesn’t get cold enough in Georgia to be practical. My mom’s family is the well known Campbell Clan of Scotland and hunter green with yellow stripes is the Campbell plaid. Every year my Grandma use to make us ponchos, so when I saw this blanket scarf that matched our plaid I wanted to do just that. Dritz has many different closure options and when I saw these Sew-On Toggles I knew they’d be perfect for this poncho refashion. The modern “kilt” is made from a scarf as well using their Tab Closures. These are simple updates you can create in no time.
