:: FREE Pattern :: Shamrock Appliques

Well top 'o the mornin' to ya cause we're doing pieced shamrocks now!  
But with a twist.  We wanted to add a girly touch, some sweet greens with pink. 
Our girls need some pink.

Following the same rules as the original tutorial, we pieced these fabrics together, ironed the heat n bond LITE on.  Then we made a shamrock stencil and traced it on to the heat 'n bond and cut.  Thing is, it's so hard to find shapes that you like for appliques.  
Do you agree?  Here is our shape that we use for our SHAMROCKS (pdf).  

Cute, no?

Looks cute on white or pink!

And for the more traditional set, we're playing around with different greens.

Love this bright polka dot!

This one reminds me of the seventies but in a fun, funky way!

Happy St. Patty's Day y'all!  
Oh and if you don't have the energy time to DIY, these are for sale in our Etsy shop along with some sweet shamrock shirts!

p.p.s.--Don't forget to enter our Stationery Sisters GIVEAWAY.  Don't miss out on the fun!!
