Its almost March which means almost St Patrick’s Day! I am totally one of THOSE people – The ones that get all excited to pull out everything green to dress up and celebrate as if its the biggest day of the year. To some degree I can justify with the fact that I DO genuinely have Irish blood in my family tree… that counts for something right? Hahaha
So the first of atleast a couple St Patrick’s Day themed blogs, my lucky clover bookmark:
I was taking part in a little swap with a group on Ravelry and among the things listed to be included in our swap projects was ‘green treats’. I didn’t want to just do edible treats and so was determined to come up with something small that I could make and include.
What I ended up doing was taking a pattern for a clover applique that I found on Ravelry, you can see it on the Crochet Spot page HERE. I did the pattern word for word except I didn’t make the stem. Instead I swung over to the Daisy Bookmarker pattern on Meldora’s Creations HERE. Working behind the leaves of the clovers I followed the instructions for the tail and tassel to give it the final touch.
I was SUPER happy with the final result so I thought I would share it with everyone here in case you’re looking for a little something to help you get into the St Patrick’s Day spirit 😀 Enjoy!
