St. Patrick’s Day Sewing Ideas
This is a holiday that is near and dear to my heart because my husband is half Irish. His last name, Irby, in fact means “settlement of the Irish”.
So in my household, this is a holiday that never goes without celebrating even if it’s a year in which we don’t decorate, dress up, or throw a party. So what do we do to celebrate in those “I’m too busy to get out the decorations or do anything special” years?
At the very least we wear green and make a traditional Irish dinner like Irish Guinness stew and soda bread, but, I have to admit, decorating is so much more fun!
If you like to decorate, dress up, or throw theme parties then this roundup will definitely give you some great DIY ideas on to how to spread the luck of the Irish throughout your home this St. Patrick’s Day!
And guess what? They are all FREE! What could be luckier than that?
