Fleece Fun! shares a tutorial for making a shamrock hair clip for St. Patrick’s Day.  The layered green satin shamrocks are singed so they curl up around the edges, a festive variation of the singed edge fabric flowers that are so trendy right now.  Get the tute.

    this is a very cute hair clip, but four-leaf clovers are not shamrocks! shamrocks have three leaves and only three leaves! st. patrick taught about the holy trinity on a three-leaf shamrock.

    My apologises! I did not know there was a difference – tomorrow I will post a second pattern with a three leaf clover. Thank you for the quick lesson!

    Kathy, I would assume that it was an honest mistake and that the author did not intend to offend anyone. I was also unaware of the difference between a shamrock and a four-leaf clover. If you want to make a true shamrock for a hair clip, I’m sure that it would be easy enough to alter her pattern. –Anne
