I first started stealing plaid shirts from my father way back in the 90’s. You remember when girls wore high-waisted Levis and oversized plaid shirts tied in a knot at their waists? Yeah, I rocked that. I didn’t so much see it going out of style…. Lucky for me, hipsters have brought plaid back and I’m cool again! Here is a tribute to my favorite Scottish patterns with a sunny update:

I carved three blocks, one base pattern and two variations to print over it. They’re just simple little pamphlet style notebooks a smidge bigger than pocket Moleskines.  Interested in buying one?  You know you are.  Head on over to my Etsy shop!  And click here for my tutorial on making simple pamphlet style notebooks.

About sappling

When God created the world, he did it in six days and rested on the seventh. I always wished there was just one more day in the week, an eighth day just for me to pursue the thoughts in my head and translate them to the physical world. There are only seven days, however, so I steal my creative moments in between being a mom and my work binding books and making boxes for clients all over New York City. I love working with my hands, learning new things, and I'm here to share those lessons with you. There are only seven days in a week. Why not eight? Guess I'll ask when I get there.

    Sarah, these are gorgeous! I LOVE the colors you chose.

    Funny thing – this was in my feed along with your blog post – I think they underestimated the potential, but you have realized it. 🙂
