Shamrock Pin*Update*

For all of you "no sew" crafters out there, I made the shamrock pins at least without the sewing machine. You will still need to hand sew the leaf to get the puckered look. Actually you may be able to try doing this with a glue gun. I did not try that. Silly sew duh. Anyhow this time I used a heat and bond instead of zig-zagging, and achieved the perfect stiffness for the fabric. It gave it a much cleaner look, not so rugged and tattered. Now you just have to decide what look you like best. To see previous post and obtain patterns and further directions click here.
