It's my Scottish clan Robertson's hunting tartan. I made the regular tartan several years ago, but I love the colors of the hunting tartan. I'm more into blues and greens. It is quite long and will be a nice wrap to wear at church and home during the cold months.
For years, since I started weaving, I would see pictures of beautiful weavings with words and pictures inside of them. I always wondered how they did that. I read several articles and watched a YouTube video.
Then I would run to my loom and try it. It was always a disaster and I finally gave up trying. After finishing my tartan, my loom sat naked and empty. I began looking up some Christmas patterns and seeing if I could find a fun project for the upcoming holiday season. Once again, I saw pictures woven into the fabrics. I watched another YouTube video of a lady weaving little Christmas tree pictures into her fabric. It started to make sense, so I ran to my loom and began.
I did it! Christmas trees!
I started to get a little braver and decided to try my hand at letters.
It is tiny, but there it is: MERRY CHRISTMAS woven right into the red fabric!!!!
Now that I know how, nothing can stop me!!! It figures, that I would finally catch onto the technique in time for my own school to start again.
