Fun Tartan Fabric Quiz and Giveaway!

Woohoo!  My Scottish delivery arrived from Ald Kiltmakers in Clydebank, Scotland, a lovely bundle of tartan kilt off cuts.  I'm using this to make my eldest son's male teacher a gift.  These are the pieces I have picked out, can you guess what it will be?

And so to my fun little Giveway.  To enter all you have to do is leave a comment with your guess as to what I'm going to make with this tartan wool fabric.

The winner will be the nearest to guess and I'll send them a small bundle of tartan fabric.  It won't be exactly the same colours as the ones in the picture as I've taken the bright ones out for my project.

If there is more than one entry with the correct answer they will all be put in a hat and a winner picked out.  You can leave as many guesses as you wish.

The closing date will be next Wednesday 20th July, when I hope to post the finished project.

Thanks for joining in the fun and Good Luck!

Male teachers are quite rare and not so easy to make for! I'm guessing a pencil roll! Have fun making!

Meagan said...

Hmm,...there are many different things you can make with Tartan!
Is it a scarf, hat or a tie?

Hmm, it's a very difficult as I've never made any teachers gifts, let alone gifts for male teachers, but I'll guess it's a covered notebook.

It could be a pencil case?

My guess:

A scaft????
A handphone pouch???
A pen case????

So hard to guess....

Emma Thomsen said...

Great responses, I'm so glad you're all joining in with this fun quiz. I started the gift today and will do more tomorrow as I'm waiting for delivery and potentially stuck in the house most of the day.

A bag/case!

Linda said...

A lunchbag? (insulated maybe)

Robyn said...

I'm going to go out on a limb and say a wedding dress.

I have a book from my grandpa with a title something like, "So you've decided to wear the kilt". It has lots of fun stuff about tartans and how to wear them, for both men and women.

Pene said...

An i-pod/ blackberry/ pda case?

Quiltin' Sandy said...

Are you making ties for the teachers? Or maybe a scarf? Tried to pick out if there was a McFarlane tartan in there!

The undomesticated scientist said...

I have no idea - but those are some yummy tartans. Okay I'll guess that you're making a desk pad - like a big mug rug.
