Embroidered St Pat's Day

Today, I pulled out two projects for their yearly wearing on St. Patrick's Day. the first is a button on panel that was sized for a white blouse that I have. In between the buttonholes are shamrocks from a Viking embroidery card that had small designs on them. just a nice touch without going too far out because I really don't have any other green clothes.

The next was a design I created in my Pfaff sewing machine before it had hooped designs. It has a clip on the back for either hair or add a safety pin to pin on your coat. Just decorative stitches along both edges of the design and the straight stitches between the shamrocks were cut and removed.

  1. Elaine...I just saw your Egg card and I LOVE it! I make card for the Cards For Soldiers project and I was wondering if you could either explain the process in detail or share the Gypsy file so that I could use the egg shaped card. THANKS! GREAT is adorable!
