Confession: I've been so eager for Spring to appear that I've not even thought about St. Patrick's Day projects this year. I know, I'm a terrible craft blogger...or maybe I'm a genius for not bombarding you with 30 days worth of leprechauns, clovers and everything green covered projects. I don't know about everyone else, but the constant stream of holiday projects everywhere can really zap my excitement over the occasion.
Yet, I don't want to totally neglect the crafty spirit of the holiday, here are a few past tutorials that celebrate green and rainbows St. Patrick's Day-style:
Maximize that Irish clover luck with my Plenty O'Luck Shamrock Shirt: The giant appliqué shamrock is made from loads of smaller clovers for a fun, textured feel:
Remember my Scented Flower Pot Pincushion from last week? I used the same flower die to cut these! And who couldn't use the extra luck from so many four leaf clovers?
The Rainbow 'Stache Bag. A roomy, deep tote that shows off a reverse applique (meaning it's sewn under a cut out shape instead of just stitched on top). The rainbow is made with some bright solids, so even if you're not a mustache fan, you can rock a colorful looking applique with this how-to.
For edible crafts, make some of my Candy Button Clovers. They take minutes to make and add some festive fun:
So whether you go all out with head to toe green, decorate with rainbows or just have a quick nibble of a lucky clover - here are a few projects that'll celebrate the holiday crafty-style;)
