Felt St Patrick’s Day Bracelet {Tutorial + Free Pattern}

Inspiration hit me a couple days ago to make a St Patrick’s Day bracelet for Monkey to wear. Last minute inspiration, of course.

St Patrick's Day Shamrock Bracelet Tutorial and Free Pattern - Felt With Love Designs

I was trying to brainstorm ideas for something she could wear beyond the traditional shirts and hats. And, I have been dying for an excuse to try out metallic embroidery thread!

This bracelet plus Monkey’s shamrock shoes, made for the perfect St Patrick’s Day outfit! (I included the larger shamrock template in the pattern so you can make those too!)

This project is super quick and perfect for a last minute craft! I chose to sew around the shamrocks but you could just use felt glue, if you want to make it even faster.

Make your own Felt Shamrock Bracelet

Supplies

Assemble the bracelet:

  1. Measure loosely around the wrist (I measured a very loose 6.5 inches for my daughter’s wrist). Add one inch for the overlap where the snap will be positioned.
  2. Cut two rectangles of green felt measuring the length from step one (mine was 7.5 inches) by the desired width of the bracelet (I used 1.25 inches).
  3. Cut one rectangle of white felt measuring the length from step one (mine was 7.5 inches) by a width slightly smaller than the green rectangle (I used .75 inches).
  4. Center the white rectangle on top of one of the green rectangles and sew in place using a running stitch.
  5. Sew three sequins (or more, if your bracelet is longer) evenly spaced on the white band on both ends of the bracelet. Leave almost an inch on both ends of the bracelet to install the snap and about an inch and a half in the center to position the shamrock. St Patrick's Day Shamrock Bracelet Tutorial and Free Pattern - Felt With Love Designs-1
  6. Layer the smaller shamrock over the larger shamrock, in the center of the bracelet, and sew in place using a backstitch. St Patrick's Day Shamrock Bracelet Tutorial and Free Pattern - Felt With Love Designs-2
  7. Apply a thin layer of glue along all of the edges of the second green rectangle and place it on the back of the embellished green rectangle.
  8. Apply the snaps at both ends of the bracelet.

Wait for the glue to dry completely before attempting to wear the bracelet or the layers may shift or bubble up.
