Needlebork: Shamrock Pins

Please join my list of Linky friends when you visit my blog! Thanks!
 I found this cute shamrock pin pattern here and instead of using glue to apply the pin, I sewed the pin to the shamrock.  The pins can be found at Michaels and A C Moore stores.  These could also be sewn to a snap barrette which you can locate at Dollar Tree Stores.

Materials and supplies:
Crochet hook size J
Small amount green worsted weight yarn
Pin back
Hot glue and hot glue gun

Chain 3, join with a slip stitch in first chain to form a ring.
Petal (make 3): Chain 3, trc, dc, trc, ch 3, slip stitch in ring.
Stem: Chain 4, sc in 2nd chain from hook, and slipstitch in remaining two chains. Fasten off.
Weave in ends.
Lay right side down on heat proof surface. Hot glue pin back to petal opposite the stem.
I am linking to most of these BLOG PARTIES

Super cute! I like how instead of using glue, decided to them onto the pins. I think it's a much more stable option. Great job.

Not a kid person, but that shamrock hat is adorable! I haven't crochetted in forever. I have twenty dishcloths I promised to people that still aren't done in over a year! LOL Too much to do and not enough time. I also scrapbook and write. Writing is my main thing. And photography. And watercolor.

Hopping for Shah's Weekend Creation. I have a short story, The Telling Place posted.
