    St Patrick's day Shamrock craft & Silhouette PORTRAIT Giveaway

    Posted by  ·  February 28, 2013

    I am hoping you are extra lucky for this giveaway so I am sharing a free shamrock cutting file and shamrock template! Decorate your home with these simple hanging shamrocks. It is a really  quick and easy St Patricks’s Day craft and your home will look so festive!

    All you do is cut out tons of shamrocks and sew them up! Make sure you leave about a foot of thread before sewing. I also used a long stitch length (on my machine a 6). If the threads between the shamrocks don’t stay together just clip one of them!

    I have made  free silhouette cutting file. If you don’t have a Silhouette I have included a pdf too!

    Shamrock Template PDF Download

     

    Now that you have this shamrock template how about a quick and simple shamrock treat bag. All you need is Silhouette Clean Cut Heat Transfer Fabric Interfacing, cotton fabric, iron and a pre-made bag.

    My shamrock template will make three shamrocks in different sizes. Follow package directions for adhering interfacing to fabric and cutting.

    Now all you do is iron the shamrock to the treat bag!  I am excited because I have two more shamrocks and the largest one is going to make the perfect St. Patrick’s Day t-shirt for my daughter!

      This would be a great win! I've been trying to figure out how I could get a Silhouette (either one) when I still have 2 Cricuts (one cake) that I don't use any more. If I win, I will donate one to a good cause and give the other one to my niece.
