Shabby Shamrocks - Again!

I don't see myself making any St. Patrick's Day crafts at this point. It's a few days away, the kids wear uniforms and they are out of school on spring break anyway. But I'm going to go ahead and repost a project I did last year. Shabby Shamrocks!

They are so easy! This is what I started with. I folded a piece of paper in half, and then in half again, and drew a heart like shape in the corner.

After I cut it out, this is what I had. I also cut out a little stem shape.

I took the piece that I cut out of it (sorry, no pic of it whole, but I'm sure you get the idea!) and seperated it into 4 pieces. I only use 3 for this. Again, no picture of the next step, but I glued these pieces onto another sheet, and cut it out. That way I had one solid pattern. Then I just pinned it on the fabric and cut them out. Two layers of each, and some felt for the back. Then I attached an alligator clip. But you could use a pin as well.

And there you have it! Simple, cute & easy!
