Materials For St Patrick’s Day Ornaments:
- Good quality felt fabric in green, yellow and black
- Embroidery thread in white, yellow and black
- Hand-sewing needles
- Fabric glue
- Medium size scissors for cutting fabric with a straight tip
- Pen or pencil
- A3 size sheet of thick white paper
- Set of small sewing pins
Here are easy step-by-step instructions of how to make your very own St Patrick’s Day sewing crafts:
Start the project by drawing your shapes on a thick white paper using a pencil or pen.
Place the paper shape on your green felt and trace over the shapes with a pencil. When completed, you are ready to cut them out.
In our case, we are cutting out the shapes for the Leprechaun Hat and the Shamrock leaf, both shapes very traditional to the St Patrick’s Day
In order to create a great finish on the edges of the felt hat, you can use a blanket stitch choosing the complementing green color embroidery thread.
In order to create a miniature belt for the hat, you will need a thin strip of black felt and a neatly-cut mini-rectangle cut from yellow felt.
Round the corners of the yellow rectangle and make two small straight cuts inside the rectangle. This way you can run the black strip through them, thus creating a belt with a buckle effect.
Once the little black hat belt is ready to go, use the fabric glue to secure it in place.
