I think of shamrocks for St. Patrick’s Day as needing to have three leaves like the plant shamrock does.
But some people like to associate four-leaved clover with the holiday as well. Luck of the Irish and all that.
No matter which you prefer, I’ve got a project for you.
If you’re a shamrock kind of person, check out the Little Shamrock cross stitch pattern on Yesterfood. It is, in fact, quite little, less than 2 inches, which makes it perfect for a bookmark — stitch several in a row — or to use as a border on a project.
If you prefer a four-leaf clover design, there are options for you at A Happy Song. These are adorable and tiny as well, and she used them on hair clips, which is super cute and an idea I’m totally stealing.
