St. Patty's Day Clover (hydrangea/broccoli????) Tshirt


I had such high hopes for my Shamrock Tshirt for Little Helper....
(And it was a lot of work!!! URGH)

I was inspired to use a technique from this little tutorial from FAITH HOPE LOVE on Pom Pom Headbands..
Well hey, I could do that on a T-shirt and it would be a POOFY Lucky Shamrock...

It was POOFY Alright!
I chose a "template"
from the trusty "EVO"
{BTW did anyone see the report on how you can be tracked by the images you upload}
Got to work!!
cut a template of a clover, free hand

three more times

now cut circles out of left over fabric

and more circles and more and more and more
(P.S. they don't have to be perfect)
Hmmmm, just a thought I don't think the word DON'T needs an apostrphe anymore :) Looks just fine without it, EH?  DONT DONT DONT can tell exactly what I'm sayin' right? :)
(had a monster {the blue one} this morning)
Anyway after cutting like 20 circles and barely filling in one clover I called in the reinforcements..

I was like BABY, BABY , BABY, OHHHHHHHHHHH...........................
BABY, BABY , BABY, OHHHHHHHHHHH, I thought you would be ....
Helping me :) And then Hubby got to work cutting "circles"
I then proceeded to the petal process

pinch each circle in the middle and put a dab of glue on the bottom

place it on the petal

Little Helper "Helping" :)
Keep Going FOREVER, and Ever, and EVER and then you will have this. :) Add a little stem and ribbon..
TA-DA you have a Shamrock/Hydrangea/Broccoli Shirt..:)
I just started really cracking up at that, What a FAIL! :) It's ok, It was fun, and it is cute :)

She loved it, and wanted to pose with her new book

Barnyad Dance, "stomp you feet"
"clap your hands"...
Poor baby will be wearing this shirt to school today...Bless her heart!
Happy St. Patty's Day!!
