If you could print your "Jones clan Tartan" onto fabric, and then send it to me, that'd be great. :-) Ha!

Very cool gadget, thanks for sharing!

Why did I not have this months ago when I was building a book cover with a tartan I had to recreate? I ended up using the letter i to create the effect I needed. It worked, but it also nearly killed me.

(thanks for the link - off to make some myself!)

It fits into the 5-minute break. Definitely not the 25 minutes of actual work!

I was looking for a plaid in some specific colors a while ago and couldn't find any... so this is just perfect.
