    I’m making the shawls right now! I’m having trouble with fraying the ends that are “opposite” of the fabric grain. Is there a trick to making this happen? Thanks sooooo much!

    Oh yes! Definitely something I would love to make. My family is Scot too and I’ve seen some of these beautiful shawls but never knew how to go about making them. You’ve done it again! Thanks for teaching me something new and special. I always love coming here and learning from you. You’re the best! xxoo

    I read her post on these as well. They look darling on your kids. I may have to get around to making them for my girls as well. :) I wasn’t exactly clear what type of fabric to buy.

    What a great idea! I have been trying to think of gifts for the women in my family. This is a wonderful idea, I think i may embellish the edges a bit to make them “fancy”. What fun..

    Those are really cute! I love the owl-y fabric. I bet the flannel really stays put on your shoulders too instead of slipping off like some shawl fabrics. Very cool!

    Thank you for the reminder about One Pretty Thing! I’d lost my link to them.

    i love handmade holidays and reading all about what people are making, but too many people i gift to read my blog, so i can only offer sneak peeks and no information, which does no good to the people wanting ideas for what they should be making! thanks for sharing yours! i like your warning to your sisters!

    Mmmm, great idea!
    We’re making gift baskets this year, a shawl or two would be a lovely addition to some of our baskets!

    I know that they are so addicting to make… and wear!!! Beautiful. I love using flannel. I hadn’t thought of using flannel. I would definitely zigzag that fringe… it will probably fray a lot. Have fun and I’ll be linking our Facebook page here!
