MAY ONLY GOOD THINGS COME YOUR WAY EVERY MOMENT OF TODAY
Several years ago, I met Riley dog on a bird watching walk by Famosa Slough. Riley’s owner explained to me that he had a shamrock tag because he was born on St. Patrick’s Day! I thought Riley was a delightful doggie and did a watercolor sketch of him in my Nature & Botanicals 2010 Art Journal.
I made these Shamrock Clover Pins quite a long time ago after seeing the instructions for them in Martha Stewart Living magazine. The instructions were to: coat fabric with liquid starch, let it dry, iron the fabric flat, cut out the shamrocks and then to add stems with floral wire. It sounded harder than it was and even years later, the fabric clover leafs are still crisp and hold their shape. I liked that I could use and assortment of tiny green fabric prints. I’m still pleased with the simplicity of this little bunch of Shamrocks to pin to a garment!
