Pin on a Little Irish

Did anyone else have a pin for every holiday when they were little?  Was that an '80s fad?  Or does my neck of the woods just abhor pins? 

I decided that we needed some lucky shamrock pins for St Patrick's Day.  These little cuties are quick and easy and sure to be a lucky charm ;)



Draw (or print) a little shamrock on a piece of cardstock (try not to be jealous of my mad drawing skills hahahaha) and cut it out to use as your main template


Using the template, cut a small shamrock out of felt

Then using the felt shamrock as a template, cut a second shamock a little larger, in a complimentary color of felt


To add a little bit of embellishment, embroider a running stitch around the small shamrock



Using a whip stitch, sew a small saftey pin to the back-center of the larger shamrock



Hot glue the small shamrock to the larger shamrock
