Materials Needed:

Cut Felt Into Strips

Cut a 1-inch strip of felt. (For a large shamrock, make the strip 1.5 inches wide.) Then, cut the strip into four equal pieces.

Create Petals

Cut an "m"-shaped notch into each felt piece, about halfway up. Repeat for remaining felt pieces, using first piece as a template.

String Petals Together

Put two stiches into each petal, stringing them all onto embroidery thread. Pull thread tight, cinching the petals together.
