  • As you can see, I sewed the string to attach all of the shamrocks together just to the outside of the shamrocks. This worked fine but the string could have been threaded between the layers of wool and hidden a bit better. ¬†Thanks for following along, enjoy your springtime season and Happy St. Patricks Day!
