  • 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!

The St. Patrick’s Day wool shamrock garland is finished. What is it with me and garlands? I just can’t seem to have too many. This wool shamrock garland was easy to make because I just added the shamrocks- made with various green wools cut into shamrock shapes and embellished with sequins, ribbon and gold tinsel added to the red and orange felted flowers that were already on a string. I hope I don’t regret later that I sewed them all together and want to take it all apart to salvage my beloved felted flowers. I should just learn how to make them and keep a stash in all colors.
Anyway- have a great day, I hope you remembered to wear your green…
