Free Pattern Friday – 16% Irish

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back again for Free Pattern Friday!

Let’s get a little bit personal.

For my birthday last year, I ordered a DNA kit from Ancestry. I’ve dabbled in genealogy off and on for years and I grew up hearing family stories, but there wasn’t much about where our family immigrated from before landing in Texas. I had always been curious, so DNA!

As it turns out, my ancestors were Very British, and Little Bit Irish, with a dash of Scandinavian.

Do you think they make a “Kiss Me, I’m 16% Irish” tees?

Today, in honor of my 16%, and of St. Patrick’s Day on March 17 (a week from today), I have two Ireland-inspired free patterns to share.

Enjoy! ☘

irish flag 2017

A 6″ x 8″ pattern to paper piece, this little flag is SUPER fast and easy. It would also work for a variety of other flags by simply switching out the colors as needed.

Check out this Flags of the World Factbook from the CIA. Seriously.

Shamrock 2017

Whatever you call it, this shape is kind of everywhere and on everything during March. I have found one four leaf clover in my life. Also, I kind of love the word Shamrock. It’s a good word! 5″ paper pieced.
