Embroidered Four-Leaf Clover
Stitch this leprechaun-size symbol of good fortune onto a loved one's shirt cuff, hankie, or scarf to share the luck of the Irish.
This embroidery project uses the chain stitch (learn about embroidery stitches, including the chain stitch). Otherwise, iron a serendipitous patch (below) onto a kid's scarf. It's not quite a pot of gold, but they'll treasure it just the same and be happy to wear it year-round. (Patch Parlor Four-Leaf Clover Patches, $3.50 for 3, patchparlor.etsy.com.
