St. Patrick's Day Bunting

Left over fabric? 
Make some bunting! 
Is there anyone out there who doesn't love bunting? Really? Anyone? 
I decided to hang my green bunting over my wall hanging. 
I just love bunting!

St. Patrick's Day Wall Hanging

 Wall hangings are my favorite!! It's nice to be able to make an entire project in a few hours instead of laboring for months (although those projects can be very fulfilling too!). This is a really simple pattern that I've used for other wall hangings. I simply put a four leaf clover in the center rather than pumpkins (see this post for measurements, WALL HANGING). I decided to put the clover right in the middle this time, rather than overlapping the border fabric. 
I think it turned out pretty cute!

DIY St. Patrick's Day Shirt

Happy First Day of March!! I can't wait for Spring,  flowers, rain, sunny summer days up ahead, and of course Easter candy! Here's a quick 15 minute (drying time not included!) project you can whip up during the commercial breaks of your favorite show.


You can find detailed instructions for painting shirts here:


I simply found a four-leaf clover picture online, printed it out, traced it onto freezer paper (LOVE freezer paper for all crafts!), used my exacto knife to cut it out, ironed onto my pre-washed white shirt, painted, and dried. It's so easy and so quick. 

This could also be made using left over fabric, just use this tutorial instead- APPLIQUE SHIRT

Cheers! 




Simple Sock Monkey Baby Quilt

It was Ray's idea to add the red binding to bring-out the red in the monkeys. I like it! This is totally a scrap quilt except for the back and the monkey fabric.
