are similar to cut hose and there are instructions for making them, I
don't recall where, but an online search might work. The plaid should be
about 3 yards long and double width, but you can play with the size of
it if you wish.
If you want to make anything distinctly Scottish make it out of tartan,
it is what the Scots did themselves.

I apologise if I came accross as rude. MOST DEFINITELY not my intention. I
fully respect any attempt at pre-17th C. garb. lord knows I dont have the best
garb in the world, what I have makes do. My only response would be that I didnt
know that blue jeans was pre-17th..... attempt or not. Honestly im gutless
and have not ever and probably will never say anything deragatory about
someone's clothes. Im just now getting to where I have enough garb and guts to offer
them some loaner's in case they forgot theirs.
One another subject, Sharon could you please contact me off list for some
name help for someone in my local group. I dont think part of it is right, but I
dont know how to make it right. Thanks
Service with a smile,
