Supplies:

  • Wool felt
  • Gold chain
  • Gold findings
  • Gold Metallic Embroidery Floss
  • Embroidery Needle
  • Sharp Scissors
  • Jewelry pliers
  • Jewelry wire cutting tool

Cut out two shamrocks using your shamrock pattern.  Then use your gold embroidery floss to backstitch all the way around the shamrock.  {watch my how to backstitch video here}

Trim the floss and trim around the outside of the shamrock to make the shape just right.

Using a small hole punch I made a hole at the top of my shamrock.
