Shamrock Brooch Pin

I got up to some rare Monday night crafting last night. I made my friend at work this little felt shamrock brooch to wear on Thursday. She's coordinating some St. Patrick's Day festivities for us. Our boss is Irish and it's always a fun day, complete with a visit from a leprechaun. And like a kid with a theme day at school, I am really looking forward to it.

When you work in an office like me you have to get your kicks where you can. (Although, I must admit that often involves thinking up crafty projects like this).

I cut the hearts out of cheapy loonie store felt with my Cuttlebug. I sewed each one (inspiration found here) and reinforced them with card stock. I used my hot glue gun to attach the hearts together with card stock and also to add a clasping pin at the back.

To give you a better idea of the size

And here it is on my (decoration) dress form. I realize most people would take a picture of themselves wearing it, but I was in my PJ's about 10 minutes after I got home from work. Trust me, this is much better.

Thanks for visiting, I hope you get up to some St. Paddy's fun!
