Sunday Swap: Shamrock Garland
Today’s Sunday Swap is with Kirsti Koo. She is so creative and talented. I am really excited for her to be here! I am sharing a tutorial for a Shamrock Shirt and Skirt over at her blog. Make sure you check it out. Here’s Kirsti.
I’m so excited to be blog swapping with Natalie today! I love her blog and am excited about our St. Patrick’s Day Tutorials! I made a Shamrock Garland and think it turned out super cute- and it was really very easy. If you can cut, sew a straight line, and sew a button, you can do this!
Here’s what you need: Total cost: $1.25
8X10 Felt Sheets (1 in each color): Green, Light Green, Dark Green, and White
White Thread (or green!)
Ribbon Scraps (about 4 inches each)
Embossing Thread or other thick thread for buttons
Here’s what you do:
Print and cut out the shamrock template. I folded the felt sheet in half lengthwise to cut 2 at a time and got 6 shamrocks out of each color. You might get a callus from cutting, but this is the most time consuming part.
Sew along the middle of each shamrock, placing the next one at the edge of the one before it. Backstitch and the beginning of the first one and end of the very last one.
I had a hard time taking down my Valentine’s decorations, but I do love me some green!
Join me over at Kirstikoo soon for our St. Patrick’s Day Link Up- starting with Natalie’s darling Shamrock Shirt and Skirt Tutorial!! Thanks Natalie for the fun Blog Swap!!
So cute and easy! I’m definitely going to have to make me one of these.
