St. Patrick's Day Craft: Framed Fabric Shamrock Art

 St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner. I don't usually do much decorating for St. Patrick's Day. I may or may not still have my Valentine's decorations out (I'll never tell...) And with Easter being so soon after St. Patrick's this year there really isn't much time! But, I received this great fabric from Wholeport and wanted to use it somehow. 
I'm only Irish by association. My "Aunt" Lucy was an immigrant from Ireland. She wasn't really my Aunt by we loved each other like we were blood relatives. So it counts.
I do have an Irish temper (my husband can attest to that) and my current hair color is red (my hairdresser can attest to that). 
So, St. Patrick's can be a little beat of a big deal in our house. I'll try to make my Aunt Lucy's soda bread again with little success and my husband may consume green beer. We shall see.
Anyway, to the craft. That's why you are here, right?

I started by tracing leftover Valentine's hearts on to the fabric.

I arranged the heart into a shamrock pattern. I taped a piece of vintage music paper to a vintage distressed picture frame for the finishing touch.

 Happy St. Patrick's Day!!
