I found a shamrock on google images, printed it out and cut it out. Traced it onto heat and bond lite (I sure love this stuff!) then cut around it and ironed it onto the green fabric.
It should look something like this. Then I cut it all the way out and ironed it onto the towel.
Just like this. See, easy peasy.
Then I stitched it down. I decided to go with white thread, even though I know some of you are thinking "White on green??? Really???" But, I kind of wanted a little contrast. I don't know why. I just did.
And there you go. A fun dish towel for the holiday. Oh, it makes me happy.
I actually made two. One for me and one for my oldest son's school teacher. I am going to tie it up with a note that he writes out that says "I am lucky to have you as a teacher."
