St. Patrick’s day has always been a big deal around our house.
My Godmother, who died of cancer when I was 5, was born on St. Patrick’s day, so as a way of honoring and remembering her, we always dressed up and ate all sorts of green food, even though we aren’t even the tiniest bit Irish.
Also, my father’s name is Patrick, and he is a great man.
So, this year being the first year that I had a baby to dress up for St. Patrick’s day, I put together this very simple little project so that when we head out to the parade on Saturday we are looking very festive!
- Scrap Felt
- Printed clover shape to trace
- Embroidery thread
- White onesie (used is perfect)
- Elastic headband
- Sewing Machine and Thread
Step 1: Cut out the shape of a tie, and two clovers out of green felt scraps. Measure against your baby to get the right length of the tie and make sure that the clover will fit inside the bottom of the tie.
Step 2: Whip Stitch on a clover to the tie shape.
Step 3: Head to your sewing machine and stitch the tie shape to a onesie, simply stitching around the outside. I also stitched back and forth at the top to make it look like a knot.
Step 2: Whipstitch the top clover down to the bigger clover beneath. I decided to add two green buttons for embellishment.
