So I posted four times in four days and then kind of forgot to come back. Oops. But I'm back now and I'm totally going to cheat by posting a link to a tutorial from 2009 and a pic of my version but it's for St Patrick's day and cute so it works.
Jenny made a felt shamrock pin a few years ago and shared how to make it on her blog Stitcher Scribbler. Here's my shamrock pin with a felt guinea pig I made in 2009.
Nice blanket stitches! Mine totally suck now. I need more practice.
March 1 is a new moon so I'll be back soon with a TUSAL update. (Details on the TUSAL are here.)
