The Shamrocks are coming

It is February as I write this, and I'm thinking ahead to March. The month when people think of green cheer and shamrocks.

Through the years I've made several different shamrock designs. I love the green, and have always loved four leaf clovers. My dad gave me one in a necklace one time, it was a real shamrock encased in a clear like plastic shell.

This first design reminds me very much of the one I saw in the necklace. It was a muted green, and very simple:

Here is an outline of it that can be colored in by hand. I have found that fabric, acrylic paint markers work pretty well for the coloring. Be sure to add cardboard between the fabric layers before any painting, though.

This collage design of shamrocks can feature any kind of message, including save the dates, birthday, anniversary, etc.

This single shamrock trimmed in gold dots has a touch of elegance to it:

Here the richly trimmed ones are paired up for the new Mr. and Mrs.
