Shamrock Lacing Cards

Kate loves new projects.  Even if it’s the exact same project in a different color.  :)

I found these cute shoelaces at Joanne’s and remade my SVG SCAL file to look a bit more like a shamrock.  :)  I used the heart stamp for the leaves and then added a trapezoid stem.  Tip: angle the bottom hearts down and it’ll look more realistic.  Then I punched holes around the edge with my Crop-A-Dile.

I had a few extra small shamrocks so I decided to try something a bit new.  Kate has been very interested in sewing lately and desperately wants me to teach her, but I’ve been struggling with how to go about it.

This was perfect. She could “sew” the smaller shamrocks to the larger shamrocks with the shoelace.  It let her practice sewing without dealing with a sharp needle.  It was a huge hit!  She loves sewing “like a big girl.”
