Little Beaded Shamrocks


Shamrocks
"May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you."
-Irish Blessing

These simple shamrocks are a nice way to add a spot of green to your outfit or beadwork for St. Patrick's day. I hope you enjoy them.
I sewed these to hair accessories, but you could just as easily use a spot of repositional glue to put them on a card or outfit, or work them into a necklace or earrings, or whatever occurs to you, you can also adapt the pattern to make wild roses or forget me nots easily.






You will need green beads, needle and thread. I used size 8 Japanese beads for the hair tie, and size 11 Japanese seed beads for the bobby pins.
Illustrations show the rounds in different shades of green, but I used only one in the actual project.
Start by making a ring of 7 beads, leave a tail long enough to weave in, or to sew to something when you are done.





Coming out of the first bead on the ring, add 5 beads, then go back in the opposite side of that bead, pass your needle and thread through the next 2 beads, add 5 beads, go in the opposite side of the bead you came out of, repeat. Then add 4 beads, go through the top 3 beads of the 4 you added, then go through the next bead, weave through to the first bead on the first "petal"





Coming out of the first bead on the first petal, add 3 beads, skip one bead , and go through the top bead in the 5 bead loop. Add 3 beads, skip a bead, go through the next one, add 1 bead, go through the first bead on the next 5 bead loop. Repeat 2 times, when you bring your needle and thread out from the 3rd petal, instead of adding a bead, go through the bead at the base of the petal.
Now you can either weave the ends in, or use the 2 ends of the thread to sew the finished shamrock to something.






I hope you enjoyed this project!!! Here's the diagram without thread
marks.
